Double date night!

 

When we first arrived at Monck in the spring, we had discussed with Steve and Dianne birthdays and anniversaries..

It seemed that Steve’s birthday is two days after our anniversary so..after five months of talking about this 

‘double date  night’ was finally going to happen…

Our original  plan was to go the Quilchena Inn but then we decided on the Keg in Kamloops instead..

I had received two $25 gift cards for the Keg when I retired..time to use them!!

Since our days off do not coincide very often we did manage to figure out the only night we could go for our celebration dinner would be this past Wednesday..

Doug spent the day cleaning the truck ..vacuuming, washing and shining up our ‘ride’..

And at 430..after Steve and Dianne were finished their work day we headed out..

A nice drive along the lake towards the city of Kamloops..a bit of a ways but so worth it!!
