Giant Guinea Pigs and Hiking

I think I saw the biggest guinea pig known to man last weekend at Petsmart in Bellevue.  Seriously, compare it to the size of what I believe is a normal sized guinea pig castle/house.  I really just wanted to give it a hug.

In other news, I went hiking for the first time ever with Jeff and some friends last weekend.  I'm not an outdoorsy person whatsoever, so this was a big deal.  Thankfully, my friends planned a short and easy hike so I wouldn't be too overwhelmed.  I saw some nature (including a big slug), didn't die, and had a nice time.  I might be encouraged to do it again sometime.
