Valentine's Date

I wasn't sure we would be able to go out at all this year.  We usually go out for dinner, nothing too fancy, but this year we had no plans.  But by late morning we found out we would get the chance to go out after all.

Last year my Mom & Dad invited all of their grandchildren over for a special dinner on Valentine's Day, and they decided to do the same thing this year.  The kids had a blast making their own pizzas, and it provided free babysitting for us!

So Keith and I drove around, since we hadn't made any reservations.  We tried one of our favourite spots in town, but the wait was an hour.  We decided to try a restaurant that is really close to our house, but is more of a senior's hang out :)  It's in a complex that houses a senior's home, pharmacy, grocery store, etc.

We only took one picture, so no evidence of the night, but we had a nice time visiting and eating our Mennonite food.  Dessert was especially good.  Keith ordered a blackberry rhubarb pie and I had a lemon blueberry cheesecake.  Mmmm... so good!

Mostly, it was just nice to spend some time alone, just the two of us.  I can't remember the last time we did that.
Can you find the bird?
