With many questionable excuses for leaving the house and stretching of truths on my part Nat' birthday gift is done! With everyone's traveling schedules I decided to give Nat the skateboard last night so the reveal could be enjoyed by all involved. I told Nat we had to pick up his gift because I special ordered it and I wanted him to get it tonight. Blind folded, with only a few odd looks from other cars, I drove an indirect route to Pravda (I didn't want to give our destination away). I carefully guided my blindfolded husband to the entrance of the store where Val and Rachel were standing with board in hand. After his pupils adjusted (it took a bit) he was a little perplexed as to why we were there! Then Val handed him his board and said Happy Birthday Man! I think overall he was pretty impressed and excited! Val did a great job on making the board and of course I pitched in with the design. It is a one of a kind custom board made by a friend and wife...not too many people can say that about their skateboards!
