Boys & Their Toys

Happy Saturday! What are you going to do today? We will probably go to the lake and see my hubby's brother's new lake house that they moved into last Thursday. I bet it's awesome to walk out of your door and sit on the dock watching the world go by. I'm thinking it won't be too long and he'll have a boat tied to that dock for summer time skiing and fishing.

Speaking of boys and their toys...

My husband is an avid outdoor adventurer. He bicycles, motorcycles, runs races (his first Marathon is in March), participates in adventure races with canoing, navigating, biking, running, climbing.... he hikes.... if it's an outdoor sport, he probably either does it, has done it, or is on his bucket list to do.

In honor of all the men (and women) in our lives who are outdoor adventurers, this card is for you. :)
