Happy Retirement

My husband has retired!!!!
I retired 5 yrs ago...but he decided to stay working for another 5 yrs for the company that bought our company.
I made him this card and our family all signed it...then we took the whole family out to the Keg for a celebration dinner.
My honey is not one for big whoop de doos, so we kept the celebration simple.
After dinner we all came back home and gave him his gifts.

The next day Wayne and I drove down to the Bluefin Bay Resort to celebrate and bring in the New Year.
We love it there...but what is not to love, beautiful waves, a room with a giant Jacuzzi tub and a fire place...ahhhhhh.

I took a little walk to get these was so cold, but worth it.

I can never get a good picture of Wayne and I.
We will be celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary next month, and I hardly have any good pictures of the 2 of us, and the ones I do are usually blurry, lol.

I wanted to a picture of the other side of the lake, so took another walk.
Thought this was a trail, but after getting snagged in the brush and jumping over snow covered rocks realized it was an animal trail, not a walking trail, lol.

This is what happens when you leave a pop can in -47c temps.
Wayne's case of pop tore open as he was putting it in the jeep....seems he forgot one, lol.

Luckily it was in the back seat cup holder.
I tried to scrape it off, but it was frozen on there.

I decided to get the wood for our fire and was to lazy to put my boots on.....Hardy Northerner in her flip flops gathering wood in -47c was cold!!!

We did go to Duluth and do some shopping, but I will share that in another post ;)

Hope you all have a Creative Day :)
