Family Night Out POTD

Jim, Cassie & I went out to our absolute favorite restaurant tonight & all of my POTD's revolve around our family night out. The first one above is of the sunset we saw coming through the window at the restaurant. I just happened to have my DRebel in the car, so I left the table to go out & get some pictures of this gorgeous sky. I just love sunsets & always try to capture them whenever possible. I was going to put my camera back in my car, but figured I might as well take it back in the restaurant with me to show Jim & Cassie the pictures. And now I'm glad I did because I ended up taking more pics inside.

A little background.....everytime we go to this restaurant, we ask for this specific waiter & will purposely sit where he's working because he's so nice & he always brings us a basket full of rolls, sometimes even before we have a chance to sit down. While we were waiting for our food to arrive, I jokingly told Jim that I should take a picture of our waiter. So what does Jim do? He calls him over to the table & tells him that I have something to ask him.....needless to say, my face turned red & I was totally embarrassed! So I asked the waiter & he said sure, but I decided not to post his picture on my blog.....not sure if he would like that or not :) So on to picture # 2. This is of Jim eating his Canadian Chicken.....one of his favorite dishes there.

Jim & Cassie both thought I was nuts for taking the next picture.....a picture of my food.....pizza! What can I say.....I just love the pizza at this restaurant & I order it every single time we go there & the same way.....light sauce & bacon. Cassie then asked me if I was going to take a picture of the rolls, too. I think she knows me too well :) But I decided not to.....didn't want the people sitting next to us to think that I have totally lost it, lol.

As we were getting ready to leave we saw Gary, the owner & I asked him if I could get his picture. He said sure & then said "let's take it together", so I handed Jim the camera & he snapped our pic. I'm not going to post that one either, though because Gary even said to me "this isn't going to end up on the internet, is it?" LOL I said "no, but it may end up in a scrapbook layout." Which it will, along with all the other pics I took tonight.

The final picture is of the restaurant's sign.....couldn't leave without getting a pic of that to scrap, now could I?

I tried taking the picture in auto mode, but it didn't turn out very good, so I switched to night mode & this is the best I could get. Probably would have turned out better if I would have had a tripod. The white sign actually has words on it, but the light overpowered them in the picture.

Ah well.....there you have it.....our family night out. Lots of fun, lots of laughs & too much food! BURP! :)

I'm off to bed....have a great night,
Benita

Nice pic of the sunset, I remember my dh commenting last night abt the sunset, said it was beautiful. Sounds like your dh is easy going, my dh would have crawled under the table if I would have started taking pics.
