How we celebrated

Bobby and I had our honeymoon in Hawaii ten years ago. When we were there, we agreed that we wanted to spend our tenth anniversary in Hawaii as well. This was not to be, but we still have a pretty good anniversary. Saturday Bobby’s grandma watched the children overnight. We dropped them off at Jesse’s birthday party (Pics here) and then went and did a little shopping before we went out to dinner.

We had dinner at Quiessence, which was a pretty fancy place. We were surprised when we showed up, because we expected an elegant place, instead it was a really on a farm. Still, once we got inside the restaurant, the place was fairly elegant. Bobby and I both ordered the Farmer’s Feast, which is a six course meal that is basically decided by the chef. The food was amazing, although Bobby and I want to know how the chef decides who gets what. We often received two very different dishes, and I was much happier when we switched dishes most of the time.

It was Oliver’s first night away, so we worried about him, but he was great for grandma. Both kids were, although Landon was a little resentful that Oliver intruded on his grandma time.

I took Tuesday off of work, as Tuesday was our actual anniversary. Bobby had an interview for a job he really wanted in the morning, but once it was over we went to Tempe Marketplace and had an early lunch. We basically just relaxed and enjoyed each other’s company. We ended up seeing Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, which started out slow, but was fairly entertaining in the end. After we picked up the kids from school, we grabbed some Swan Thai on our way home. The food was very good. We got in the pool with the kids, and overall had a great time together as a family.

It wasn’t Hawaii, but it was a close second. Maybe we’ll do Hawaii for our 15th.
