John and I decided to celebrate our anniversary today as opposed to last Sunday when it was our actual anniversary, partially due to the weather but also b/c we'd have more time.
We took the kids over to Grandpa's and
We started our night with a 4-course dinner at Red Lobster (I'm STILL stuffed! LOL); we had stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer and then I ordered Creamy Potato Bacon Soup, Fresh Garden Salad, Shrimp and Scallop Linguini and then a yummy Triple. Chocolate. Brownie a la Mode. And you can't forget about their Cheddar Bay Biscuits; Delicious! Now can you see how I'm still stuffed? LOL John ordered all the same, expect he ordered Grilled Garlic Shrimp with rice and a baked potato. All of that was only $14 (well, minus the mushroom appetizers of course).....can't really beat that price!
Afterwards, we went for a drive. We were going to go to Point Park but when we saw that you now had to pay, we kept on going. We drove past Ruby Falls (where we went to the Haunted Caverns on one of our first dates :-) ) and Rock City. We saw beautiful houses and the amazing scenery sitting atop Lookout Mountain and below. (Sorry, no pictures as we never got out of the Jeep.)
We had a wonderful afternoon spending time together. We're together a lot but as with anyone that has kids know, it's nice to be someone besides Mommy and Daddy on occasion. :-)
Added bonus? The kids were fantastic for Grandpa! No arguing, behaved themselves well and apparently had quite a lot of fun......that makes the evening a success!
Looking forward to next years anniversary as it'll be our 7th anniversary and we were married on 7/7/07.....seems kinda fitting to have a big shebang on that day, right? ;-)
