Happy Birthday, Abbie!

Our daughter, Abbie, turned 19 this week. She's having a fun freshman year at the University of Colorado in Boulder. She's in the Business and Computer Science Program, has a good attendance record, and sends me Venmo invoices for good grades every couple of weeks. I had a "proud Dad" moment recently when she told me she wanted to learn Python and asked me how. After getting advice from my co-worker Joël, I sent her Learn Python the Hard Way.

Abbie's sorority had a "Dudes Weekend", so I drove Hefe to Boulder yesterday to participate in the festivities. She gave me a tour of her sorority and we marveled at the views from their rooftop patio.

Next, we gathered up her posse of friends and cruised down to Pearl Street. We had perfect timing to watch some of the Stampede and had a delicious dinner at Avanti. I have fond memories of my friends' parents coming to town in college. It was delightful to be that parent this weekend.

As I was leaving town, I thought to myself, "I should get some gas." I figured I could make it to Louisville, but I was wrong. The view of 36 from Hefe while waiting for AAA wasn't too bad.

Today, Jack and I ventured back to Boulder and hiked the Flatirons with Abbie and a couple of her friends. The trail was super busy and steep, but the views were worth it. We only hiked for three miles, but it took us two hours and 40 minutes. Everyone was pretty pumped when we made it to the top!

Happy 19th Birthday, Abbie! 🥳
