Just returned from a special dinner. It was the celebration of our anniversary and my sister in law and her husband's anniversary. We met at this lovely little restaurant that's been around for years and years. Mark's parents always went there for special occasions and it always reminds us of the two of them when we go.
We brought Avery and she loved getting dressed up and sitting with the adults at the fancy tables. I had a scrumptious seafood crepe and Mark had London broil. Avery, of course, had the noodles and butter. She is a very bland eater but enjoyed all the festivities. They brought us cake with candles for the celebration and Avery had an ice cream sundae.
We used to meet with large tables with lots of family, but now our loved ones have passed away and others have moved away. It's usually just the two of us couples now, but it's still such a treat. The food was delicious and we talked about movies and books. Maybe another time in the future we can get some more of the family and get around a big table at Calvert's for memories of days gone by.
