Our lawn underwent a huge transformation in the space of about 5 hours yesterday. Here it is at about 5 pm:
And here it is this morning, when it was light enough to take a photo:
Amazing, isn’t it? Tony worked his ass off last night, with Leland’s help for a couple of hours. When he was finally finished, he took off his pants, cracked a beer, and told me he was ready to sleep.* I leaned in for a kiss, wrinkled my nose, and told him I thought he was ready for a shower. He worked so hard and I am so proud of the end result. Thank you, Tony!!!
We celebrated our 5th anniversary in Bellevue at The Melting Pot and it was delicious. If the pricetag wasn’t so extraordinary, I would want to go every night. I’ll settle for requesting a fondue pot for Christmas so I can make my own.
Tony ordered some dessert first.
Self Portrait!!! (I promise I wore clothes to dinner, even if it doesn’t look like it right now)
Oh, yes, he’s as good as he looks. Wait! I mean, the dinner is as good as it looks!
Oh, fondue, how I love you…
Dessert~ chocolate s’mores fondue and complimentary Champagne
I’m pretty sure there’s a photo of me at his age eating cereal out of a box on the floor, too.
Clearly, the main reason we had a child was so that he could help with household chores.
*Isn’t that always the first thing guys do when they want to get comfortable: take off their pants?
