Dinner and the Farmers Market

Saturday night we went to this really great steak house called Robert's Steak House. Creative isnt it? But the atomsphere and the food were fabulous.
Sunday dawned early. We went to this Irish Crepe house for breakfast. I didnt realize that Irish meant it was a bunch of dirty men making manly crepes, if there is such a thing. I think there was maybe 1 crepe on the menu that had anything to do with fruit and it certainly was not fresh, it was canned strawberries. Totally disturbing to me. When I think crepes I think dainty and yummie. Not so stuffed with meat and other things that they are almost unrecognizeable. And there happened to be a Lacross tournament going on that weekend so we had about 15 young guys that crawled out of bed and into their dirty clothes, stuffed into this tiny restaraunt trying to get breakfast. Did not fit my idea of a romantic breakfast.
They had the farmers market going on that weekend also. That was a lot of fun! Great food and fun things to look at. We bought homemade chips, dessert cookies, fresh lemonade, BBQ sandwhich, Gyro and Starbucks! I think Starbucks was the best thing we found :) Just kidding. Actually, we I go to certain Starbucks down here I want to be a little snooty. They just dont get the importance of what they are serving sometimes. And the Yahoo's that they had working on Saturday certainly didnt know what they were doing. Curt had to go back and get our drinks fixed and I think he was about ready to crawl behind the counter and make the drinks himself. All I have to say is if you are going to work in coffee, know the language. If you dont, ask for help. Ok, Im done. Off my soap box.
We had such a fabulous time. Anniversaries are such a great time to celebrate life and love and all the many reasons that you got married in the first place.

Our Hotel

The hotel we stayed in was beautiful! Its not often that we get to stay in such a nice hotel :) The room was beautiful,we had down comforters and pillows and the view from the deck was amazing. We had so much fun pretending we were rich.


We took a nice trip to Vail for our anniversary! It was SO good to get away from life and spend time together. We live together, work together, drive one car together but its still so much better to spend time together away from the norm. Its marriage reviving. We drove up on a Saturday and found this awesome little French cafe to have lunch at. The food was awesome! I had baked brie with walnuts and apples on bread. Yum! Then we took the gondola ride up to the top of the mountain and played frisbee golf. It was gorgeous up there! I felt like singing just like Maria in the Sound of Music. Curt quickly hushed me.....obviously cant appreciate GREAT singing.
I cant remember who won, Im sure it was Curt. What man just plays for fun? Not mine.


On our anniversary night we went out for Sushi but forgot to take pictures of it before we ate it. Dorks! So we took pictures afterwards. At least we found really good sushi here in Denver. Coming from Seattle, they really dont have a lot of good seafood anywhere else.
Curt took me to sushi on our very first date.....aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Isnt he a doll :)
Then we went to Whole Foods and got yummie dessert! I posted the pictures backwards :)Oh,well.
