Hubby's birthday surprise..

So, last year Hubby's birthday kind of sucked -- and it was delayed by a week... So, I figured he was owed a birthday.

I told him a while back to clear the weekend. I wouldn't tell him why.

He had all kinds of guesses, all of them were wrong.

He said he'd love to go curling on his birthday -- I told him I couldn't figure out how to make that happen... and, I was lying!

On Friday I picked him up -- and told him to drive to Duluth.

We stayed at one of the classic Duluth hotels -- had a nice Italian meal on Friday night... but, the big fun was Saturday afternoon -- as the Duluth curling club had a free "try curling" session. So -- hubby got to curl at the home of the US men's Olympic curling team!!! Granted -- if we hadn't sucked a bunch this year, it would have been more fun... but -- there also might have been more people there...

After curling, we went back to the hotel for some tylenol and a nap-- then dinner at the rotating restaurant at the top of the hotel. This morning we had breakfast there as well (to see things in the daylight :) -- and, now we're home.

All in all -- a good weekend...

How fun! Reminds me of a couple of years ago when my birthday surprise was that D. had signed us up for an introductory kayak outing so that I'd finally get to try something I'd wanted to do for a long time.

Happy birthday to your Hubby.

Was it fun? Way, way harder than it looks, I'm guessing?

Yes .. much more difficult that it looks. I used to skate -- a long time ago -- so the sliding without an edge to control was really counter-intuitive.

If they comply with established rules, then the margins disappear. The whole independent contractor thing will blow-up as well.
