What they didn't know is that I'd already made a stop by Paco's Tacos earlier that evening and I dropped off two framed pictures of them to decorate our dinner table, one from their wedding day (same one you saw on yesterday's post) and one taken recently.
When we were led to our table and Mom and Dad saw the framed pictures on the table, they were so surprised. Mom was even brought to tears. It was an awesome moment!
The waiter asked what the secret was to staying married for 32 years. Mom said "The only way to stay married is to stay married." Makes sense to me.
Ok seriously. The dinner was divine. And no, I couldn't eat all of that! Half of it is today's lunch. :)
But man, oh man, was it GOOD. And that margarita? According to our waiter, it was the best one on the menu. Top-shelf tequila mixed with freshly squeezed lime juice and Gran Marnier ... done and done. And of course it was on the rocks with a salted rim -- my favorite way of enjoying a 'rita.
One of the reasons why I didn't finish dinner was because I knew the folks at Paco's Tacos were coming out with some special treats ... tres leches and a brownie with deep-fried ice cream.
So yes, we left significantly stuffed, everyone loved dinner, and Mom and Dad had a great time celebrating their 32nd anniversary. And someone has awesome leftovers in the fridge. :)
