Happy Anniversary!

As of today, my parents have been married for 56 years. Pretty amazing. If Keith and I are married for that long, we will celebrate in the year 2070, when I will be 111 years old. Hmm. I'm not sure that we'll get that far!

My parents took us out for dinner last night to celebrate at one of Madison's very nicest restaurants, L'Etoile, and we had a great time. The food really was good. Even Keith enjoyed it -- and he's the kind of guy who prefers low prices/big servings to high prices/small servings. We all left quite full.

Here's a glimpse. For dessert I had a giant marshmallow truffle with chocolate pudding.
Feel free to drool. It really was amazing.

Happy anniversary, Mom and Dad!
