Day 152: The Perfect Birthday

Yesterday was Paul’s Birthday. Hip hip hooray! Keeping with the birthday celebration trend set forth on Manu’s October birthday here in Bishop, Paul and I ventured out on a little hike. This time around Lake Sabrina, our first zero-elevation gain hike….deeeelightful. See the beautiful snowy pics below.

This year, with all this glorious free-time I have right now, I wanted my present to Paul to be geared toward the act of doing, not buying. So last night over a ripping hot campfire at our campsite up in the cold, cold Buttermilks at the base of the Sierra Nevadas, I made Paul a homemade pepperoni pizza in my dutch oven. For those that don’t know Paul, the man would eat pepperoni pizza every single day of the year if I’d let him! To my surprise (since this was my first attempt at campfire pizza), it turned out to be homemade campfire perfection!!! We enjoyed the pizza, our cokes (a double special treat) and the roaring campfire well into the evening, with little Morgie curled up beside us on the crashpad. The moon is almost full right now and from our site we could see the Buttermilk Boulders almost perfectly, gleaming in the moonlight below us. A wintery hike, warm campfire and homemade pepperoni pizza. I think he liked it.

Homemade pepperoni pizza. Mmm.
