Kevin and I had the most wonderful date in Washington DC on Saturday. In fact, the only thing that could have made it better, was if the Washington DC Temple had been open so we could do a session while we were down there :). We grabbed some lunch on our way into town, and then arrived at the National Theater with the perfect amount of time to get settled in before the show started. We have really loved having our season tickets this year.
Waitress was our musical this time, and we had heard great things about it, and were not at all disappointed. Although the story was a little difficult at times, it all came together, and the music was great. And they totally sold mini apple and chocolate pies before the show and during intermission in cute little jars. If it hadn't been for the fact that they were $10 each, I would have been tempted to buy one - ha ha! It was very fitting, since so much of the story talked about pie.
After the show, we had a very short walk down Pennsylvania Ave to Del Frisco's, an amazing steakhouse where we had reservations. We have a tradition that instead of buying each other presents for our anniversary, we splurge on a really expensive and delicious meal. It is the best :).
I had made reservations, and had noted that we were there to celebrate our anniversary, and not only did they have a card for us signed by all the staff, but treated us to two of their AMAZING desserts. And that was after a divine meal of steak - so good! I was so full, but it was all so amazingly delicious, that I kept eating anyway. It was completely worth the money.
And we had a wonderful view out the windows of the Trump International. It really is one of the prettiest hotels I have ever seen, and I have a goal of staying there someday.
As we drove out of town on our way home, I had to snap a couple pictures. Washington DC never gets old to me, and it blows me away that we live so near this amazing city. I really love where we live!
We got home in time to say goodnight to the two older kids, and it was the perfect end to a fabulous celebration.
