#30daysofbiking Day 11: birthday boy

happy birthday, baby!

Today was my husband Mark’s 50th birthday – WOOT! ¬†Older and better I say. ūüėÄ ¬†Kind of hard to grasp that we have been together for more than half of our lives… One thing is for sure, I wouldn’t change a single thing.

We had our family celebration together last weekend – when all the boys were home. ¬†So today was kind of anticlimactic … we just planned to hand around home, get a few things done and have a nice ride, dinner and a movie.

Another one of those days that didn’t go quite as planned. ¬†Mark and Grant played a little tennis in the morning, then we did some yardwork. ¬†And then came what was supposed to have been a brief – oh, one hour at most – home improvement project: installing a new electronic door lock … all my idea, of course. Which, like many home projects doesn’t go as planned and turned into close to 3 hours of aggravation. ¬† (And as of this morning, it is still not working as it should). ¬†Wasted far too much time messing with this thing, but finally decided to head out for a birthday ride.

It was definitely the best decision of the day. ūüėÄ ¬†Had a great late-afternoon road ride, just the two of us. ¬†Nice dinner out on the porch, and a relaxing movie at home afterwards. ¬†Happy birthday, sweetheart!

the birthday boy ... Mr. Fit-Healthy-and-Fifty!
