Marv's 75th Birthday!

Dave's dad, Marv, turned 75 this weekend, so we took him out to a fancy schmancy dinner to celebrate!

I wanted to take him somewhere he'd never choose for himself, along with a place that would allow us to spoil him a little without breaking the bank - the winner:  The Boathouse at Sunday Park in Brandermill!  Dave showed Bonnie and I this place once when we first moved here, as part of his tour o'Richmond, but we have never had dinner there so it was a treat for us too. :)

Marv splurged for himself and ordered a nice bottle of Gew├╝rztraminer to go with his meal, and we all got dessert, along with some coffee after dinner.  We had a great time catching up [last time we were together was Father's Day, which was also the same time I saw my parents - gotta remedy that! :)] and Ann even brought me a gift from their recent trip to PA Amish country!

We perfectly timed the end of our dinner with this spectacular sunset over the lake just outside the restaurant:

Here's the birthday boy:

Happy 75th, Marv - here's to many more! :)


  1. That place looks so nice. I'm glad you guys had a nice dinner.

    You should have taken off your shoes and gotten the sand between your toes to check that off your list. haha
