Today was Dave's birthday (the big 2-6!) so we went to his favorite fish place on the San Clemente Pier. Coming from a non fish lover, it was pretty good. They had great sourdough bread, and being a bread gal, that made me happy. The coconut shrimp was pretty delish too, but i played it safe and stuck with pasta. His family got him and everyone tickets to see the Charlie Daniels Band in June, so that should be totally fun!
I got him a pair of new shorts (we're poor engaged folk here, no room for anything fancy) and a car. Yup, a car. My grandpas old Explorer is sitting in my Aunts driveway collecting dust and not really working, and I've heard Dave mention on more than one occasion that he'd love to turn it into something offroad-ish. He's got this talent when it comes to cars, and a real passion too. So, I worked my favorite niece/granddaughter role and ta-da, handed Dave the keys tonight. In theory its a fun idea...but practically, we'll see if it'll work. Who knows, Dave may have us a baja explorer sometime! And if not, maybe some cash in hand if we can sell it.
