5 Years of Sheer Bliss!!!

Yesterday Bryce and I celebrated our 5 Year Anniversary! I don't know if we could've predicted our lives 5 years ago, but that is what makes life so exciting! We are continually growing and learning, but we both feel that we have a great relationship with lots of love and laughter; and that we make a great team with our strengths and weaknesses. We were laughing the other day as we were talking about our upcoming "big day" that we got married so young that I will only be 69 when we celebrate 50 years!! Still a young buck! CRAZY!!
We had a great day together yesterday! Bryce worked in the morning and then we spent the afternoon in Newport Beach while Jamie watched the kids. It was so fun to go back to where it all began and drive by our old homes and our favorite spots in Newport and reminese. We have tons of fun memories there which was great to reflect upon. We did all the fun stuff: rode on the ferry over to Balboa, walked around the peninsula, went to the Wedge and watched all the boats go in and out of the harbor...I miss you Newport!Then we headed up to Manhattan Beach for a AMAZING dinner at Flemings! We got to visit with our old friends we both worked with and were treated like a King and Queen. We arrived to our beautiful booth with flowers on the table, a Kenyon touch! It was so nice to just eat and visit and not have to be feeding other little mouths. I savored every bite!! I will describe the food as best I can but words really don't do it justice. I guess it is a blessing and a curse to know what real fine dining is like. Such a treat, but the more you have it the more you want it!! We started with an appitizer platter with BBQ shrimp, scallops, and lobster tempura. I think we could've both eaten a whole plate of lobster tempura, it was DIVINE!! Moving on...We both got wedge salads, again how can a salad taste so good?? I got Halibut on a bed of baby spinach with a delicious pomegranate bernaise sauce, and Bryce got a bone-in rib-eye with Flemings potatoes and snap peas as our sides. Can you tell I'm still excited about it? We of course got a lava cake for dessert and were STUFFED!!! What a great day and night we had. Thanks Flemings staff for making our night so special. It was so fun to just be mellow with no schedule and no real place to be but just with each other. It was really nice to have that quality time together!! Happy 5 years babe!!
