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 Gewürztraminer 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! :)
