Last weekend, I took Walker out for an early anniversary dinner.  I heard about a little place down the river, and decided to check it out, though the reviews were very mixed.  People either raved about it, or they hated it, nothing in between.  I admit I was a little nervous, because who likes to drive an hour and pony up for a really bad meal?  But it's just dunner, and if it's horrible we can always stop somewhere else on the way home, so off we went. 

I didn't tell Walker where we were going. It was more fun to keep him guessing. The drive along the Mississippi was gorgeous, as always.  In this area, you have bluffs on one side and the river on the other.  There are no bad views.  We are blessed to live here.  Less than  an hour after we hit the road, we pulled into a very small parking lot in front of our destination.  This is what we saw when we got out of the car:

This pond powers a water wheel at an old mill ~

We crossed this bridge to get to the restaurant ~
The view from our table.  The mill and water wheel are above this waterfall.  The trees are too thick to see it all ~
Walker LOVED his prime rib and garlic mashed potatoes.  Very good meal!

Yesterday, Walker took me out for more celebrating.  This time, we stayed a bit closer to home, visiting one of our favorite places, a bistro with outdoor seating.  The weather was perfect, sunny but not hot, with a nice breeze.   We ordered several small entrees and shared them.  And of course we saved room for dessert ~

The company ~
Walker LOVES to go out to eat ~

diet, schmiet.....chocolate lasagna is heavenly!
Walker's dessert came with two spoons, mine came with one.  The staff must know me, LOL!  Of course I had to help my sweetie finish his treat ~
Next weekend, we have plans to again follow the river to my mom's favorite birthday spot, another little river town supper club.  I'm looking forward to the family time.  It's hard to believe that summer is almost over.  We really try to make the most of it, before the kids go back to school and the weather turns cold.  It's these little moments of celebrating and togetherness that mean so much  ~
