Uber Guncles Michael and Bill
Tony with Uber Guncle Marty
We camped in the Olympic National Forest and it was spectacular. Before I metTony I was really more of the camping out at the Hilton type of guy. He really has opened up my eyes to a whole new world, and I cannot wait for him to show Zoey the things he has shown me.
While we were there we did a little impromptu birthday celebration for Tony and our friend Michael. It never ceases to amaze me what a gaggle of gays can do. They turned the campsite into a full on swinging birthday party in like 20 minutes, while I got to sneak away with my husband for some alone time so he would be surprised. After seeing what they did in the middle of the woods I am getting nervous about the “production” the baby shower will be (LOL).
On our way back from camping Tony and I stopped at the Olympic Game Farm, It’s this amazing place where you can drive through and interact with the animals. I think our favorite part was being able to feed the bears (shock). My big, strong, butch husband squealed like a girl when a buffalo tried to stick it’s head in the truck though. The entire ride back he obsessed about the buffalo slobber on the window, I think he was really distraught over the reminder of his recent trauma.

This is not the buffalo, but Tony swear it was trying to eat him
I also realized that we may be in a bit of trouble. I don’t think Tony will be able to say no very often to our little girl. When I jokingly asked Tony for a goat, he stammered and started this dancing from one foot to the other thing he does when he wants to say no, but doesn’t want to disappoint me, and I realized that Zoey is going to WORK him over BIG time. Just to test my theory I later asked for a wolf and a bear… while he did draw the line at the bear, I could have easily got him to agree to a wolf! Man oh man… I may have to be the voice of reason when it comes to Zoey. We’re screwed.
It was an amazing weekend, and I am so glad that we put away all of the preparation and allowed ourselves a moment to breathe and refocus and get back to getting everything ready. And next year Zoey will be with us on this trip… wow. After waiting so long for her, I can hardly believe she’s almost here. I am truly grateful for my life.
