Our youngest team member turned 22 today! We were all very excited to embarrass her, like writing her name on the activities board in the Galley. As per birthday girl’s request, we all – well, almost all (Scott!) – went to Yin Yoga together. It was taught by one of the researchers here, and it was great fun. Then we snuck off to pick up Angela’s cake. Although we couldn’t make it ourselves, the kitchen here at McMurdo makes custom cakes upon request. Yay cake! The pastry chef whipped up a lovely chocolate cake with coffee icing and beautiful lettering. Then it was time for Angela’s party. We hosted it at Gallagher’s here at the base (right in the middle of Two-Step Tuesday). The whole Crary Lab showed up to wish her a Happy Birthday!
We’re so happy to share this special day with Angela and so grateful to have her with us.
