Mom and Dad gave us an early anniversary present this week. For the first time in almost a year, JA and I were able to have a date (with no kids!!!). They sent us to the Prarie Rose Chuckwagon Supper Club and Opera House. We left the house early so we could go visit the Hopalong Cassidy Cowboy Museum & Theatre. The museum wasn't that great, but we did enjoy walking on the grounds. I took this picture as we walked.Before the dinner bell rang, we were able to take a train ride and enjoy the outdoor holiday light display. The dinner bell rang, and we sat down at a table ready for an enjoyable evening. Before they served the food, everyone stood and said the Pledge, and then they said grace over the meal. How many dinner shows do that anymore? The show involved four men playing their instruments and singing cowboy songs. It was great. Their jokes were clean, and they interacted well with the audience. In fact, the singers were the same men who served us our delicious dinner of briscut, sausage, beans, potatoe salad, and a biscuit followed by a wonderful peach cobbler. These same waiters/singers have sung all over the country, including Carnegie Hall (twice).
The best thing about this night was that JA and I were able to be able to spend an evening enjoying each other's company without anyone fussing, complaining, or begging to eat :-)
