Show & Tell #11

Show and Tell

Tonight we went out for the first time without either of our kids. We left them in the care of a new babysitter (which worked out very well--my kids impressed her and she impressed us).

The place we went to was here.

Here are some pictures from the last time we went there:



It was to celebrate our anniversary:


And it was to pamper ourselves before we did the long trails and tribulations of IVF (Cycle One of Two). We stayed at the hotel overnight, we went to this restaurant for dinner and to this one before for lunch. In between lunch and dinner, we went to a Spa for massages. It was a wonderful anniversary and a wonderful way to disassociate ourselves from the first part of the infertility tango (the years of TTC, the tests, etc.) and to start fresh for the IVF cycles to come.

As we went to these two places tonight, it was amazing to me that only a little under 2 years has passed. And how much we have went through. And how much we have gained.

I tend to stay away from steakhouses since I'm a vegetarian, but I went to Finale last week when I was in Boston!

How beautiful. The dessert looks scrumptious.

I LOVE that you do these kind of special things for yourself - as a couple!

New babysitters are always a learning curve, but it sounds like yours worked out fine.

Congrats!

wow what a lovely way to spend an anniversary - particularly the "happy anniversary" plate!

I think the "Happy Anniversary" plate is so cool - more restaurants should do that. Looks like you had a wonderful time.

Nights out are sooo awesome! I'm glad you two enjoyed yours. BTW, thank you so much for the birthday letter! It really brightened my day. :)

Things I haven't had the chance of doing yet or been prevented from doing: See my son's presentation on Rabies for his biology ...
