We have a GREAT friend who gave me (at my suggestion) a wonderful b-day gift. She said she would come and watch the kids so Mark and I could go out to dinner. (not sure when the last time we did that).
So last night we went out celebrate our anniversary and left the kids at home. The kids had a BLAST (they LOVE my friend Mary) and she loves them.
We had a very nice dinner (slow service, but it was just soooo nice to be out with Mark), and a nice walk by the lake.
Thank you again Mary.
