30



October 21, 2009     Personal

First of all, I had no idea that turning 30 could be so much fun!! My husband went above and beyond, making it a birthday I will never forget. He took me on a surprise trip waaaay up north to the Gunflint Trail where we stayed at the beautiful Gunflint Lodge. It is a place we will definitely be visiting again.

Every morning Eric had me open an envelope that had a picture of what that day's adventure would be. It was so exciting I could barely sleep! :) On my actual birthday we canoed into the Boundary Waters to explore the pristine waters and camp for a night. (We were going to camp two nights but it got REALLY cold and a snowstorm was brewing so we thought it would be best to get back to the lodge.)

Other adventures included moose calling and fishing with a guide, horseback riding, hiking, and driving up and down the Gunflint Trail at sunrise looking for moose. Thankfully, we got lucky and were able to watch a cow and her calf for about an hour one morning. It was amazing!


I think this fox wanted us to take him home with us :)

Eric was a pro when it came to portaging! :)

The smallmouth bass were so much fun to catch

The moose!! This cow and her calf didn't seem bothered by us at all. We watched them for about an hour one morning.



I named her Lucy the Moosey :)
