Our official anniversary celebration

My sister and her two kids came over Friday evening to watch the kids. We were so looking forward to this date! It's our first date since River was born. Our first stop was at Bonefish Grill. Can I just say YUM?! It was delicious! KG got the house salad: farmed greens, hearts of palm, kalamata olives, tomatoes, pine nuts, feta cheese with a citrus herb vinaigrette. Lily's Chicken: Chicken breast, goat cheese, sautéed spinach, artichoke hearts and a lemon basil sauce. Potatoes Au Gratin.
I got a strawberry daquirri which was very good. I'm pretty picky about them. Pecan Parmesan Crusted Rainbow Trout: Sauteed and topped with artichoke hearts, fresh basil and lemon butter. Garlic whipped potatoes.
We each ate a bit off the other's plate but both liked our own dish best!
After that we walked around downtown. We took the camera and took photos of each other as we scouted out spots for a family photo shoot of a family in our ward. KG actually had the camera the majority of the time. I was teaching him how to use it and he was a good student!
I love this staircase. So pretty.

A lesson in depth of field. Focus on the foreground and the background is out of focus....
...focus on the the yellow shoes in the background and the foreground is out of focus.
We also ran into a different family in our ward. They posed a little for us and we played in the alley.
This is just cool! It was an unplanned thing. KG was trying to get Hannah. The dynamics are awesome!

Caught talking to Julie.
I love this photo. The angles and lines are amazing! The alley looks a mile long!

Then we said good bye and were on our own again.
He's so hot.

Love this. So much of what I miss about living downtown.
We then went to the Idanha with some specific plans but a lock had been changed and we were denied! :( We went across the street and got ice cream from Ben and Jerry's and too it on the road. We went to the foot hills and had ourselves a good ol' time. First we went to a spot with plans to lay a blanket out but were being constantly watched by a too close nosy neighbor without a life. We finished our ice cream while we watched the sun set and had some fun in the street. ;)

Then we went in search of a new spot. We found just what we were looking for. A much more secluded spot to lay out a blanket, gaze at the stars, listen to the noises and do a little somethin' somethin'. :) It was very romantic!
It was a really lovely and much needed date!
