Valentine Day Evening, Part 2

Here is the wait staff. Susanna (13) and Luke (15). Don't they look sharp? This is in front of our living room window.




We enjoyed a delicious meal of cheddar/garlic biscuits, rotisserie chicken (citrus herb or backyard grill), baked russet or sweet potatoes, and steamed veggies. Delicious menu.



The "Love Boat" theme was a puzzle to me. I wondered where the children had heard about that. Remember that old TV show? Yikes! We don't even have a TV. Then it dawned on me. In the movie, Monsters, Inc., Mike Wizowski is taking his love bug out for dinner and says, as he strolls off, "the love boat is about to set sail, oo oo [imitating a horn on a ship]!"


Here are the two happy couples. We are all 45 (not in total, but EACH). My DH (back right with the white beard) is the "baby" of the group by a few months. I'm beside him like a good wife would be, LOL. Yes, my friend looks 14, but she's also 45 .




Here's my extremely happy son presenting us with the bill. He is too happy about the tip of $200.00 he added.



We ended the evening with desserts. My extremely thoughtful oldest daughter had made a delicious and lovely low-calorie dessert for us dieters. Heart shaped molds of sliced strawberries in strawberry gelatin with a decorative poof of whipped topping. Perfect ending...well, almost. A little more to come.
