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!!
..we had wine and beer..great conversation..we never seem to run out of things to talk about!
..Steve and Dianne ordered Steak and Lobster..such a splurge!!
..and we had our ‘usual’ Prime Rib and Garlic Mashed Potatoes..
..we even received two complimentary desserts!
..after dinner we were all so ‘full’..so we went for a walk to Riverside Park..
..a beautiful park..on the shore of the Thompson River..
this is where the north and south Thompson River meet..
..and a great sunset to finish off a lovely ‘date night’..
..it was so nice to feel like a normal couple again and spend some quality time with our ‘neighbours’!!!
Happy 60th birthday to you Steve..
and Happy 34th Anniversary to us!!..just a little trip down memory lane..’'
..hard to believe how fast the years have gone by..
