Happy Birthday Mr. DillyDally!

This past weekend was a wild one here in DillyDallydom!  Saturday was Mr. DD's birthday and yesterday was Mother's Day!  But ... we started the fun on Friday!
Mother Nature was literally pouring buckets of rain from the heavens!
Last September (2014) I commissioned the high school's Advanced Welding class to build a river skiff.  I swear ... it had to have been the best kept secret in Cordova's history!  Five seniors did the building while being supervised by their instructor, Mr. Sorenson.
On Friday, they loaded it up on to a trailer and delivered it to my husband's workplace!
Mr. DillyDally was flabbergasted!  Brother was there to see the big reveal too!  After 34 years of marriage, it is fun to be able to pull an unpredicted surprise on my Mister!  It also meant a lot to have former students build the boat ... using skills they learned from their teacher, a close friend.  I only took the one photo, as I felt so bad making them all stand in the pouring rain!

Saturday, during dinner and birthday cake ... the table was filled with conversation about outfitting the boat!  Oh ... how I look forward to the fun and adventures this boat will add to our dillydally lives!

Do what you love.  Do dillydally!
Mrs. DillyDally


  1. What great gift for your husband.
    Happy belated B-Day Mr. DillyDally!

  2. What a great gift. I love surprises! LOL at your first picture. I didn't see any wheels and couldn't figure out why those poor people were dragging around a big piece of metal.
