So I thought Iwould let you know how the rest of the anniversary went.
Trevor (eventually) chose the Xbox, after many hours of dithering, and telling me he chose the barbecue. I was disappointed because it was the Xbox I had actually bought, but peer pressure eventually forced him to admit that it was truly what he wanted. It is now networked and does stuff. Apparently all it’s missing is a 37″ LCD screen to watch the stuff on.
Our evening was wonderful. The limo ride was fun. I kept watching the people through the one-way glass and could tell they were wondering who was in the huge silver stretch Cadillac. We took the kids some clothes (they were at Gramma’s for a sleepover) and they got a ride around the block, which was pretty impressive to them.
Dinner was quite spectacular. We sat in an outside-but-enclosed area and listened to a big band play live music down below. The food and service were outstanding and we drank quite a lot, not having to drive. The weather was perfect, and I had the next day off work, so I didn’t care about the time.
All in all it was a most memorable anniversary. So I guess it’s time to start working on the next ten years.
