Happy Birthday John and Dad.

We have been busy working at the refuge and enjoying the people here.  Last Saturday was John's birthday.  To celebrate his birthday we ate at Chang's Mongolian Grill.   Very tasty.  It reminded me of Hu Hot Mongolian Grill in Montana.

Happy Birthday John.  Love you. 

Yesterday some of the Tualatin employees took their pack test to prepare them for working prescribed burns on the refuge.  They have to walk 3 miles in under 45 minutes wearing a 45lb vest. 

Getting ready to put the vests on. (#20 is our boss man John S.)
He looks real happy. LOL
The man in the blue shorts is the instructor.

Sarah and Erin (Park Manager)  heading over to the starting point to put on their vests.
Gathering around for vests and last minute instructions.
Erin putting on her vest.
Ready to go.
And they're off.

They all passed. Yea!!

Today is my Dad's Birthday.  He is 84 years young.   I am so lucky to have such a wonderful dad. 
Nobody enjoys a good laugh more than him or a good card game.

Happy Birthday Daddy.  Love you.

Laugh everyday.  Happy trails.  Stay safe.
