Yesterday, August 28, was our anniversary. Our 7th anniversary of the date we celebrated our marriage.

We made it a special day by dropping the kids off at a friend’s house in the late morning and and going out just the three of us (the baby is too young to leave anywhere more than 2-3 hours, and we planned on being gone much longer than that).

First we went up to our favorite Thai restaurant, Thai Fresh in Portland. We first went there during its grand opening 2 or 3 years ago, and have gone back periodically ever since. The staff know is, and the food is so delicious, and not too greasy. And almost all the menu can be made vegetarian by using veggies or tofu instead of meat. Most of the items allow a choice of meat or tofu or veggies, giving us many options to choose from.

We actually didn’t go there right when we got there; we were early and the baby was hungry. So while I fed Ralfie in the van, Rafael went across the street to the Asian market to browse. When he came back, we ate.

After that we went to the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden. Sure, the rhodies aren’t blooming this time of year, but we still enjoyed the ducks and squirrels and other animals. We saw a squirrel couple: the female appeared to be nursing, and the male was, well, obviously male. They let us get some nice pictures before moving on. We took some other pictures too.

After that, we went to the OMSI to see the Deep Sea video in the OMNIMAX dome screen. It was spectacular! Of course, anything on that big of a screen is spectacular. But the video was really nice, too, showing such interesting things about the underwater world that we see so little of. We both every much enjoyed it.

After that, we went back to buy something from the Asian market (some frozen things that we didn’t want to get earlier or they would have been melted by then). When we got back to where the kids were staying, the lady invited them to spend the night, so we went home, put the baby to bed, and enjoyed a quiet evening with just the two of us. It was a very memorable day!
