Yesterday was Scott's 50th birthday! His far-flung friends and family chipped in to get him a special gift - he received snowshoes and bindings, a really nice axe, and a subscription to the Boundary Waters Journal. His Ely friends gave him a copy of AARP magazine. It was quite a haul!
He spent the day skiing with his friend Mic while Ann and I made a two-layer chocolate cake for the gathering we attended in the evening. Check out the fancy cake stand! I have always wanted one of those, and there is one in our house left by the owner - it was perfect for the occasion! We decided not to put all 50 candles on the cake because we didn't want to start a forest fire.
It was a great day.
