Anniversary Date

Sorry for the lack of posting this past weekend.  It was our wedding anniversary on Friday (yes, we were married on the 13th), and my husband and I went out on a date Saturday night to celebrate.  We spent the afternoon at the McMichael Art Gallery in Kleinburg, which houses the Group of Seven paintings and many Inuit and First Nations collections.  Unfortunately it was too hot outside for me to be able to explore the sculpture garden, but it's certainly something I'd love to go back and do. 

Hanging out on the porch, watching the world go by!

We followed our art experience with a little bit of patio time until we headed over to Chartreuse, a nice little restaurant, for dinner.  I had the salmon on a bed of mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables, and my husband had the grilled lamb.  The food was exceptional, although I'm not sure how much of it was gluten free!  It's always strange to not have to ask about preparation and ingredients when we go out without my son.  It's become such a habit that I find myself automatically scanning the menu for choices that may be suitable. 

My bump, front and centre!

It was probably our last evening out alone together for a long time, since the baby is due in August.  I find myself getting tired more quickly now, and there are fewer places I really want to go.  Mostly my nesting instinct has kicked in and I want to get things done around the house! 

Sunday we headed on over to my parents's house for my dad and sister's birthday celebration.  They were born on the same day, so we usually celebrate together.  Grilled fish, watermelon salad, green beans, baked mini potatoes and a green salad were all on the menu.  My son enjoyed his banana-bread chocolate vegan cupcakes and sorbet for dessert, while the rest of us had plain cake. 

We got home around 9 last night, and although I was tired, it was once of the most relaxing weekends I've had in a long time!

So this morning I'm catching up on my posting.  The menu plan will be posted in the next little while...

  1. Happy Anniversary! You look fantastic to be so close to your due date. I was so tired and worn down and HUGE at that point.
