In case you missed my post yesterday....we celebrated Jay's parent's 40th wedding anniversary last night. We had a grown-up dinner with Jay's parents, his sister, Julie, and her boyfriend, Tom, his sister, Jackie, and her husband, Robbie, and the two of us...plus Kate.(Not quite kid-less but close..and Kate was great.)
We ate at a really nice restaurant. The atmosphere was very calm and beautiful and the food was great! The conversation was laid back and it was a very enjoyable time.
We all surprised Jay's parents with the gift of a 2 night get-away to the Cliffhouse in Maine. They haven't done many vacations, so we were hoping a mini vacation to a place they've never been would be just enough adventure for celebrating such an important occasion! While they are there they will also be going to see the musical, South Pacific, at a local playhouse.
We came back to our house to finish the celebration with the kids. We had the cake that Sarah decorated so nicely. Mike had run out while we were gone to get flowers...and ice cream. All the kids had picked up to make it neat for the party while we were at dinner.
It was such a fun night. Jay's parents enjoyed it. It was great to surprise them with the get-away...and just a nice way to celebrate them!
