The Daddy and I celebrated our 8th anniversary together by taking a vacation without the girls. This trip is our new tradition: instead of buying each other gifts, we will go on a trip together.
I like it!
With Nana and Papa in town to care for the girls, we drove on down to the western coast of Florida. We went to Captiva Island, just north of Sanibel. The resort we stayed at was perfect. Good food. Clean rooms. Beautiful scenery. Lots of activities!
Our room wasn't far from where this picture was taken. See my belly? Bigger than it should be. When you see me in person, I KNOW it's not that big!
As soon as we got there, our room wasn't ready. What do you do? Head to the spa for a pedicure!
This is the only gator we saw. See the tail tracks? Looks like two gators passed across the trail here!
To celebrate our anniversary, we headed out to The Mad Hatter.
Just to let you know how delicious this meal was, here's what I had:
- Water to drink (boy, how I wanted a nice glass of wine!)
- Goat Cheese Pillows to start
- Marinated Crab claws (compliments of the chef)
- Bread with a pesto and tomato spread
- The Spiced Watermelon Salad
- Black Truffle Sea Scallops
- Classic Creme Brulee
I'm so sorry you weren't there! Dining seaside while the sun set made us long to return, but the food was reason enough to go back!!!!
Of course while we were there, we enjoyed a few beautiful sunsets on the beach.
Best of all while we were gone, construction/destruction began on our addition! In 60-90 days, we should have a new master suite. The new KING SIZE bed couldn't come at a better time...
