When making the reservation Larry told them it was our 21st anniversary. Upon receiving menus from the host, we opened them to find they had printed, "Happy Anniversary" at the top of the menu. That reminded me of Hyatt. (They do that too...so cool!) Nothing like the personal touch...
The waiter remarked he was amazed we had been married for 21 years. He said, "you look so young..." followed by a comment about hair club for men or something like that. (ha ha! Actually Teeb has all his own hair...) Anyway we just explained we started young...actually married when Larry was still a teenager if you can believe that! Seriously. He was 19. We were just young'uns who somehow not only married but basically raised each other to adulthood, actually.
So at Roy's, I ordered their special trio of fish ~ Hawaiian butterfish, salmon and tuna. It came on little plates and each had a special sauce. I also had risotto with asparagus. Larry got a steak. We split it and shared it all. Really good!
Then we topped it off with a chocolate lava cake. Look...they even wrote Happy Anniversary in chocolate sauce on it. The waiter also came out and took our photo with both our camera and the restaurant camera. They gave us a framed photo to take home.
We came home and Savanna had been really hard at work cleaning. No kidding, she did about 20 jobs around the house. I was UH-MAYZED!!! She had been working on laundry, mopping, cleaning, even straightened up our bedroom and left a special card she made us on the bed. Her card said this:
Mommy & Daddy I L-O-V-E You!!!
Happy 21st Anniversary
You guys rock! D + L = 21 years!
I hope you had a great day! I know you did. Thank you for letting me live and providing me with food, shelter and money. You are so awesome. Happy anniversary. I love
I L-O-V-E You!!!
I was really touched by her work and her little card although the "thank you for letting me live" part really threw me a little. I mean, we never thought about not letting her live. I guess she is just thanking us for cooperating with the Lord to plan to bring her into this world and nurture and raise her? (GRIN)
It was a good night...and the best is yet to come.
