Celebrations!

Yesterday was Pat and my 21st anniversary, and we need to thank Mark for planning a wonderful party for us at the Vienna Hotel on Wednesday night.

Here he is as we arrived with about 30 people, and not a seat was to be had. Mark picked the Vienna Hotel because of the $.10 chicken wing night. We didn't anticipate the big crowds.

A half hour later we were still waiting to sit down, but things began to look promising. I believe we were scaring people with the great number of children we brought with us, and some folks did start to clear out.

We finally sat down, spread out over 7 tables and booths.

Becky was in charge of Luke.


Kim was happy with her first trip to a bar(I mean chicken wing palace).


Becky made us this wonderful, lemon filled cake. Delicious!!!! Even our waitress enjoyed some of it. ( We took pity on her because we had 30 people, including about 20 children, spread out across the whole dining room.)
Thank-you Mark for a wonderful evening.

Last night, Pat and I enjoyed an evening out alone. We went to the Outback Steakhouse and enjoyed some great prime rib.

On Sunday night Pat and I are heading to Saranac Lake and Lake Placid.
This will be the first time Pat and I have gone anywhere without children. It will also be the first time in about five years that I will be healthy for our anniversary.
I need to thank my wonderful husband for all he has done for me as he has stuck by me for the past years. He is a living example of the wedding vows "in sickness and in health". Hopefully the sickness part of this is behind us now and there will be nothing but HEALTH for many, many years to come.
