Claire's 30th

Sat 8/17/2013

Claire turned 30 this week! To celebrate, we went camping just outside of Yosemite National Park last weekend with her extended family. It was fun to meet some of her uncles and aunts and cousins. In this photo you can see some of the hundreds of antique buttons that were handed down to Claire by her Aunt Kathy, who got them from Claire's great grandmother. What a birthday present!

The highlight of the trip though, was undoubtably when her Uncle Kip took us up in his little Cessna four-seater airplane and we got to fly above Yosemite. It was pretty incredible! Claire took a million photos which are over on her Flickr account if you want to check it out.

On Claire's actual birthday we went out to Hearst Castle on the pacific coast. It was pretty bonkers. I'll never get over seeing all those crazy carved and painted ceilings! Again, there are a bunch of photos in Claire's Flickr. We drove home along Route 1, which I have not done in a really long time. It was a fun, relaxing trip and I'm glad we did some memorable stuff to mark Claire's 30th birthday. That is a big one!

Now that I'm back home, I'm trying to catch up on a bunch of big projects. Phase 7 #018 should be back from the printer any day now, I'm still plugging away at my biggest illustration project yet, and I'm spending any remaining time that I have getting the Basewood Kickstarter ready for its launch at the end of the month. School will be starting up again soon, so things are only going to get busier! Buzz buzz buzz, I better get back to it.
