20th Anniversary!

Ah yes, the baby!!
Just a quick little post to celebrate my wife Tammy and I's 20th anniversary.  As I mentioned previously on my blog, Tam & I met nearly 22 years ago (actually Oct 8, 1990) in Hong Kong and we married about a year and a half later on April 4, 1992.

We celebrated by heading over to Macau for a night at the Venetian hotel.  Each room there is like a mini-suite and the hotel laid out a chocolate shaped heart filled with different chocolate pieces surrounded by rose petals to celebrate our little evening!

The Venetian Hotel (and Casino)
Although it is our 20 anniversary...we do have a 15 month old baby!  Our 14 year old was good for a night alone by himself, but the little one came for our romantic getaway for 2.  Yes, 3 is a crowd in such circumstances...but we love him so we made a way :) !

And our evening out for dinner was wonderful.  We had originally made reservations at Morton's Steakhouse but we made a last minute decision that with Ethan, a dinner at Morton's may be more of a challenge than we would like so we fell back on our traditional Macau favorite, Fernando's.  Fernando's is a Portuguese staple in the former Portuguese colony and we have been frequenting it for at least 20 years.  Fresh bread, chicken, veal, salad, and Portuguese fried rice washed down with Sangria (for Tammy) and red wine (for me).

We also had a drink with some new friends we had just met and had gotten married.  One of the things Tammy and I love are the interesting people we meet on this side of the ocean.

Anyhow, we had a wonderful night reaffirming our marriage and looking forward to the next 20 together!

Congrats! So let's see, if my math is correct, you'll be having another baby in about 12 years . . .
