Steph and I went shopping Saturday morning at REI, Petsmart, and OSH.  There was an interesting setup of paintings outside of REI, but none of them particularly struck a cord with me.

Steph’s coworkers had a barbecue that afternoon that we went to.  They were all pretty cool, and we’ll probably go hiking/backpacking with a few of them.  I really enjoyed the conversations.  There were four children there, all about the same ages (2-4), but they were mainly well behaved, or at least distracted.  The food was particularly good, especially the cherry cider.
