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...
