So Matt's birthday was in August and honestly, I never know what to do for his birthday or what to get him. I really struggle with any kind of gift giving occasion for him because he really sucks to buy for. I've gone over the top, I've gone with what he kept saying he wanted, I've done thoughtful things and all of it ends up being shit because he hates everything. Nothing in the whole wide world excites him. Honestly, he's not even much of a smiler and doesn't really get joy out of experiences.
Truly, I often wonder how we ended up together because I am all about gifts and experiences.
So this year I figured we'd go to Park Point beach in Duluth and spend some time out there with all of us. If you have never visited Lake Superior, then you don't know how absolutely cold the water is. It's obscene. Even at it's warmest, the water is never warmer than 42 degrees. Our beach safety days include information on hypothermia because that could actually happen to you. I will not go in this water for nothing.
After discovering I managed to get sand in my underwear, and that remains a mystery, we headed to the playground.
