Lesson 48: Hippo Birdie To MEEEEEE

Yesterday was my birthday!!! It was a long birthday weekend!!!! Tyler surprised my by not only arranging to have Jenae fly up from Utah to visit but also throwing a puppy themed party at Red Robin for me. :) No one actually took pictures at the restaurant so I set up all the decorations at home afterward.

For the puppy theme there were napkins, balloons, a sign, gift bag, stickers, candle, hats and I got to wear dog ears and yes I wore those during dinner at Red Robin.

I could not convince Jenae to put her hat back on for the photo.

On my actual birthday Jenae and I went out to breakfast in town. I tried to take a few pictures of us and since none of them turned out I just took a pic while we were walking. Action shot!

Easily the highlight of Jenae's weekend visit here: I have been getting my free scoop of Baskin Robbins ice cream for a few years now. Yesterday I had my coupon and suggested to Jenae that we stop by the BR on our walk to get my free scoop. I showed the man at the counter my coupon and he said he needed to see some ID. The coupon has Whitney "Mann" as the name so I showed him my licence with my old name on it. Since that ID had a hole punch in it the man said it was no good. I showed him my new ID and mentioned how I got married recently and that is why the name change...

He replied: the pictures are different...

I know, I just got married so I got a new ID

The first name is different....

No it's not

One says Whitney and one says Frances

No, they both say WHITNEY FRANCES as I mentioned I just got married

Well since this ID is incorrect I can't take it because I am not in charge and the manager is not here so you will have to come back when they are here.....

We left and Jenae burst out laughing, the very idea that I had to show two forms of ID to get a free mini scoop or ice cream was too much for her. You would think I was trying to get alcohol or something. Jenae laughed for about 2 hrs. I was more in the mindset of YOU RUINED MY BIRTHDAY!

Upon returning home we found Tyler and he joined us to the next town over where I was able to get my free scoop no questions asked AND no ID necessary.

This BR even received the patronage of Tyler and Jenae.

On the way up to drop Jenae off at the airport we stopped at Coulon Beach to walk around.

Jenae was in love with the trees here and all the pretty colors.

Let's take a picture imitating the trees with our arms out....

Wait that one was no good take one as a tree flowing in the wind.... yes I think we got it.

Before walking around the water we three stopped by Kidd Valley to get some hot chocolates. There was a random statue so we all took pictures next to it in the same pose.

I don't think Jenae got the idea...

A beautiful fall day :)

A beautiful fall day.... from another angle.

An open interpretation of LIFERING

Tyler and me imitating Jenae scrunching her neck in photos.

Jenae and the modern art

Sculptors must at some point while making art realize that their work is just going to be used as a means of creating funny pictures for tourists.

The result of running out of poses.

  1. To correct an inaccuracy in this post: I am not "in love with the trees" there. Remember Whitney, there is only ONE tree there I am in love with. Although he may not be very happy with me since I didn't drive by to say hello the last time I was in Washington...
