Adventures in Babysitting

Tonight was a special night! David and I went out on a real date -- alone!

Our dear friend Heather, who we've known for over a decade now, came up from Florida to meet Daisy and see some friends here in Blacksburg. One of her missions was also to make David and I go on a date. She and her friend Angie, who traveled with her from Florida, babysat for Daisy tonight while we went out.

David and I decided to try a new restaurant near Fairlawn called The River Company. It had big beautiful wood trusses with a fantastic view of the changing leaves and Radford city. The atmosphere was fantastic and the service was great. David liked the tea so much he drank six large glasses of it! The food was good as well but I forgot to take any pictures until we got to dessert. For dinner David had garlic cream sauce linguini with tiger shrimp and I had a lump crab cake sammy with sauted veggies which I enjoyed very much. For dessert we split homemade pumpkin pie with fresh whip cream and drizzled with carmel sauce.

After we ate we ran some errands in Christiansburg and then came home. Heather and Angie said Daisy did well and took part of a bottle after some fussing. When we got home she was zonked out!

That sums up Daisy's first adventure in babysitting. :)
