More birthday celebrations! This time it was mine. T surprised me with some beautiful flowers, and we enjoyed a quiet evening out at one of our new favorite lakeside eats. If you appreciate an excellent view, great atmosphere and a gourmet menu, take the time to check out the new Restaurant 1856 in the Emporium in Arnold's Park. We've been twice now, and have no complaints. A note: You're going to need a reservation, and you need to call in advance a couple days for a prime window spot.
New boat! With most of my family in town last week, it was decided that our old boat wasn't going to do the trick anymore in terms of size, power, or ease of use. After much negotiating, my Grandpa surprised us all with an upgrade to our lakeside ride. This is a picture of the new hoist getting installed. Quite the production! T and I are most looking forward to many wonderful boat picnics in our future.
How has your week been?
