Marking Our 13th Year

Tony and I celebrated our 13th anniversary on the 9th of this month. We didn’t have any definite plans, we just wanted to get out of the house without kids for a bit. Mema came over to babysit the two littles and we made it as easy as possible by having them ready for bed before we left.

After deliberating for a bit we decided to go to the Annapolis Harbor to find dinner and walk around. It was late when we got down there and we were starving, so we chose the first place that didn’t have a long wait; Middleton Tavern.

(Tony picked up a dozen white roses and a new lace paper punch for me. The gift for the 13th year was supposed to be something lace, so instead of going with a traditional lace item, he got me something I’ll use in my scrapbooking. He’s just awesome like that.)

We got a little table outside and enjoyed talking and people watching until our food came out. We ordered a steampot to share and boy was it good!

After we finished dinner we headed out for ice cream. I overheard the waiter telling another family that the best ice cream on the harbor could be found at the Annapolis Ice Cream Company, so we headed that way. I got a scoop of chocolate and Tony got a scoop of strawberry and I have to say, it was delicious! As we ate our ice cream we walked back towards the car to head home.

(Our wedding song was Wonderful Tonight. I found a company on Etsy that printed out the words to our song with some of our personal details on top. I was able to print it at home and pick up a nice frame at Michaels…I just love it!)

I sure hope we don’t have to wait until our 14th anniversary to get out again!

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
