Weekend In The Wild-Idyllwild

This post is really really about our weekend away for Mark's 55th Birthday !

Okay I admit it.  I am feeling pretty proud of my hard work and new look. 
So my picture gets to go first !

Now for the weekend update.  We went to our first Bed and Breakfast.  It was really fun and different.
At our usual hotels we come and go and no one really pays much attention but at the Bed and Breakfast
you and all the other guests are best friends.  It was a new experience but hopefully we kept up our part of Breakfast conversation.  The food was delicious looking and from what I heard it tasted even better. The common areas were quaint and comfortable.  Streaming cups of cocoa and cozy corners.
The fall colors were amazing.

We spent Saturday in a picnic ground after exploring the city.  We took our lounge chairs and set up a day campground.  Mark had a picnic lunch from the B&B and it was delicious.  We hiked a little, relaxed a lot , played Battleship, read and of course took a nice nap under the pines.  It was a perfect weekend.

Its so nice of Mark to have a Birthday so we could have such a wonderful weekend.
