It was a semi-formal event, so Albert wore his dress blues (which are black) and I wore my only semi-formal maternity dress. My sweet mom-in-law sent me a shawl from Mexico to borrow. It worked perfectly. Though, I'm still not quite sure how you're supposed to wear a shawl. Several of the girls had one on and only one girl seemed to really know what she was doing with it! that made me feel much better! So, we got dressed up and went to the Grand Ballroom at a fancy hotel downtown. I can't remember the name of the "restaurant" but it was delicious! There are a lot of ceremonial things that take place and the guys cut up a bit. We had a wonderful time.
Upon arriving home, we found that Canon had thrown up in his bed. I am somewhat thankful that we did not hear about this until we were home. My Sunday school teacher and her teenage daughter were watching the boys and fully capable of handling the situation. But, if I had known about it while we were out, I would have been worried. They were a huge blessing though and took care of the boys perfectly. They even cleaned up all of the dinner dishes!
So, here is a picture of our first date since October...... maybe. I know we went on one in June and our friends watched the boys sometime before Christmas, so maybe November. Any who, we had a blast!
