The 50th birthday celebration was so much fun, very memorable and something I’ll never forget, and likely never repeat. All the moving parts came together during the multi-stage event. Thanks to everyone who contributed and made my 50th a real celebration.
Plans for my 50th birthday celebration are underway. I created a separate 50th Birthday Celebration: Land & Sea page for more details and ongoing updates
My 30 year high school reunion was held on February 17. It actually was more like 30 and 2/3 years since we had to postpone it due to Hurricane Harvey. It was quite an interesting experience going back to The Woodlands and seeing how much everything has changed since I lived there in 1987. It was great seeing so many of my classmates and learning about their journeys since graduation. I’m so glad I went!
For those that have been asking about this, I thought I could share with you some photos of the construction process. I have, of course, taken many photos of the lot and initial construction process, and will take many more in the coming months. As of now, I am very patiently awaiting for the foundation to be poured. Very exciting. Visit my house photos page to see the latest photos.
For my birthday, I went on the Wild Africa Trek at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. This was about a 3 hour trek, on foot and truck, through what most people see from their safari truck when riding the Killmanjaro Safari at the park. While strapped in by our harness, we got pretty close up to the hippos and crocodiles and got some really close up views of the elephants, giraffes, and rhinos. The Animal Kingdom cast members are good enough to photograph your journey. Most of the pictures below are staff photographs of the trek or ones that Craig took with his more professional equipment. We had great weather and I think the pictures came out fantastic. It was a great experience I highly recommend.
