We have THE best friends

...and I'm not just saying that because they know I'm a chocoholic. Dolores and Shawn got us a fondue kit and a BIG, honkin' bag of chocolate (I'm tempted to open it up and roll arou...err, too much information) as a belated anniversary present. K1 and K2 got us Purdy's chocolates in the shape of maple leaves. How cute!

I'm not saying that we have the best friends because of the gifts, because that's not what matters to us...it's the great connection that we have with these incredible people. Without them, and the others that we have met along our journey to "Little Maple", we would be (in all honesty) lost. Ok, enough mushiness...

We went out last night with two crazy kayakers and Dolores and Shawn at 6:00. We met up for "Sushi Saturday (tm)" at a great sushi restaurant...all you can eat for $20. We ended up having so much sushi that I think Josh went into fish sweats, and at one point I swear I saw Jimi Hendrix floating above the table. We forgot to bring our camera, the presentation of the food was definitely picture-worthy. All during dinner we were talking about adoption, work and life in general. I don't mean just talking...I mean really having a good conversation about everything. It was great.

As we were finishing up dinner, we looked around and noticed that we were pretty much the last ones in the restaurant, but none of us wanted the evening to end. K1 suggested that we go to William's Coffee Pub, so we could talk some more, so we all got into our respective cars and drove over there. We were about to walk in when Dolores said that she saw a Caffe Demetre as we were driving there...so we all got back into our cars and drove over there instead. I hadn't heard of it before and I had no idea what we were in store for.

Oh...my...G-d!

What an amazing place! They had THE best desserts I have ever seen (or tasted for that matter). Not that I had much room for anything after the dinner, but I slowly made some room...like I said, I'm a chocoholic. ;)

We sat around, getting buzzed on enjoying our chocolate haze and ended up talking until about 12:30am.

I'm glad you like the fondue set. For some reason, I didn't think you complain when you saw it.

We had such a blast! I love getting together with you guys!
