Because just going out for dinner, the two of us, is pretty darn special!!
I wrote out little rhymed poems to give him a hint about the next place we were going and he had to guess. (well mostly rhymed) And along the way, we answered questions from this book!
"We ate this food for almost a year
In a country that became quite dear
This restaurant is not far away
Pick your favorite dish and I will pay!"
Answer: A nearby Chinese restaurant (very authentic food, almost like what we had in Beijing) For the last 5 or so years this is the place Dave *almost always* wants to go. But pregnancy and Chinese food for me doesn't mix. And I just haven't felt like Chinese in a very long time. Poor guy. Our food was pretty good, ALOT of green beans - I think that dish was meant for 10 people! Next time, the Peking Duck. We know they serve a ton of things that aren't on their menu:)
|Dave wore an orange sweater in memory of the ratted Thrift shop one he wore to our first date! I have fond memories of him in that old thing:)|
"When we walk, this helps us talk...And the place we're going to rymes with Larry Binds.
Walk one time around the loop, so we can walk off all that soup!"
Answer: Prairie Winds Park
(too dark for pictures)
"This next place sells used things like clothes and books and rings
Buy me something silly to wear to make the others stare."
Answer: Thrift Store
(and I had to do the same for him)
Dave was nice to me. He bypassed the pink wig (!) and chose a scarf and a yellow belt (the belt was too small though)
Here we are....at the last place.
"Let's take another walk down memory lane. Perhaps hot milk with candy cane?"
Answer: Second Cup (the place where we had our first real date, except now we're in Calgary and the first date was in Osbourne Wpg) The evening ended with me giving Dave a present that I had ordered online for us. And then we went home....to our kids already in bed! Wonderful.
|Anyone want to buy a beautiful flowered shirt and scarf?? Because I think we're done with them now....|
