Now, enough of the sappy stuff. My sister, Lainie, gave us the best present in the world for our anniversay. She gave us an entire night and the next morning off of being parents. Aunt Lainie is one of only a few people that we would trust with the kids for that long by themself. Our kids love their Aunt Lainie, and she is the best babysitter we have. She is also the best priced. We got a hotel room and invited a couple of friends downtown for drinks to celebrate, and we couldn't have done any of it without Lainie.
Getting ready for a hot night on the town!
We went to Emmerson Bigguns for dinner and drinks. We were met there by: Snook and Donna, Maze and Sarah, Ryno and Angela, Teddy, and Sergio and Rachel. It was a great time. The food was good and the company was wonderful.
Donna and Chris Snook (FYI - Chris is actually looking down at Baby Snooklet who will be here in a few short months....at least that's the story I'm stickin' to.)
Ang and Ryno....yes, he is crazy and looks the part.
Sergio and Rach
Two of the five Haag sisters, Rachel and Moni
The Girls: Donna, Moni, Rachel, Angela and Sarah
And, of course....the mostly happy and always blessed couple!
And because it's been awhile since we've posted any pics of the kids, here's a few recent shots (since we all know THEY are the reasons anybody even looks at this blog).
The Princess found her wand
The kids got chocolate towards the end of the picture-taking. Needless to say, they loved it. It was the only way we could bribe them into all sitting next to each other!
