Our Anniversary Date

I asked Drew to surprise me this year and plan a fun anniversary date. He surprised me with a trip to Old Town Alexandria which is about an hour from our house. We did a little window shopping and popped into some cute little stores. One of which was this really cool Christmas store- very whimsical and interesting. I also purchased a bag of yummy locally made, old fashion lemon drops at a little boutique all about Virginia -delicious! After walking around for a while, it was time for our dinner reservations! Drew surprised me with a dinner cruise up the Potomac. It was awesome! We had a yummy 5 course meal and as the sun went down, all of the National Monuments were lit up. After we ate, Drew and I went up on top of the boat... old classics were playing. We danced and reminisced about the last six years together. It was magical! The weather was beautiful and cool and it was fun to see the D.C. sights from the water.

Here is a picture taken via cell phone (sorry, it is kind of fuzzy & the sun was right in our eyes) of us on the pier before we departed. Thank you Drew for a special night!

Corinne, I ran across your blog and wanted to say hi! Your family is so great, I just loved perusing through your recent pictures. I feel all caught up to speed on what you've been up to.
How fortunate you are to have such a beautiful happy family.

Take care.

You guys look great in this picture. Hope you had fun. We tried to track down your info a little while ago and kept calling the wrong numbers. I sent our info to your hotmail accounts. I talked with Kirk for a little while on Sunday night. Sounds like he's doing great. We'll talk soon.

Corinne, that sounds like so much fun!! I've always wanted to do one of those dinner cruises to see the monuments at night.
