Usually, we are on vacation during the week of our anniversary. This year however, we were not able to go on vacation because of Andrew's job. He gets a dedicated week off for the 4th of July. So, we are just going to go on vacation then, since he will already have the time off. So, that left us trying to figure out what to do for our anniversary. We have a few favorite restaurants that we like to go to for special occasions, but we wanted to try something different this time.
My mom came over to watch Michael for us, and we headed out for a date night. We got to the restaurant a little before 6:00 (I know, very early, but we are getting old and used to eating dinner early with a baby) and were seated right away. There were a few other people in the restaurant but for the most part, it was pretty empty. A guy came up to us right away and took our drink order, brought us our drinks, and then told us that someone else would be our server. Well, 10 minutes went bye before we ever saw another person. Finally, our waitress came over to see if we wanted any appetizers, we did, so we told her what we wanted, and she left. The appetizers came out very quickly, and we still had not given our waitress our dinner order. She came to check on us and see how the appetizers were, and I had to tell her that we were ready to order. For our appetizer we got the cast-iron cornbread and the scallops.
We had a great Anniversary date, but next time, we will probably just go to one of our favorite restaurants instead.
