Surprise Weekend!

This past Saturday Tad decided to surprise me. I had no idea where we were going and what we were doing. He gave me a few small tips so I knew how to dress appropriately, etc., but gave no real hints. About 10:30am Saturday a Jeep pulled into our driveway with Keith and Janice Boss in it. They were our travel buddies. I then found out we were going to Houghton, MI - - which really gave me no clues. Once we arrived (almost 3hrs down the road) I saw what we were going to see that day! That weekend was Michigan Tech's Winter Carnival. I had never heard of it before, unfortunately, but it was so neat! The students compete in an ice/snow sculpting competition. They had some of the neatest things!! One, you will see in the slide show, was done by a Christian group that shows the Garden of Eden and the Birth of Christ - - very cool!! The stuff was amazing! After spending a few hours looking at the sculptures and dodging in and out of buildings to warm up :o), we went to eat at Long John Silvers, and then went to a hockey game. We ended our great day stopping at Wendy's for a free frosty before getting home. I had a great day with my husband and with some friends!! That was my "Happy Valentine's"!! :o)

Hello Tad and Hannah- This is Janae Scott. I was searching around on some blogs when I came across yours. My family lives in Hancock, right across the bridge from Houghton. We would go to the Winter carnival every year. Looking at your pics brought back memories. Anyway, Jono and I would love to keep in contact with you all better. Do you have an email address?

Hey ya'll!!
Great Suprise Tad. Our 2nd Valentine's day followed in tradition with our first. Pizza delivery. Last year we ordered it because I burned the meal..this year we ordered it because Mark got home late and we have a little one (our present from last Valentine's Day:)

The birds are chirping, the sun is shining. I think it is time to update the ol' blog to something a little "warmer" than ICE SCULPTURES!!!
