Anniversary Recap

Harrah's NKC

Our fourth anniversary was spent at Harrah’s this year. For the most part, Brian and I try to do something different each year. This year we decided that we wanted to do a real-life, honest-to-goodness poker tournament.

This trip was planned around a 3:00 pm poker tournament Harrah’s. We were really worried that we wouldn’t make it in time, but we did. Brian and I paid the $45 + $5 entry fee and the rest is history.

Well, my entry fee was history anyway. I got knocked out within the first hour. It was very disappointing. Brian saved the day by winning second place, though. It was awesome! At one point, I actually had a gang of people (other players who had gotten knocked out from the tournament) cheering for him.

So here’s quick recap of past anniversary celebrations..

The Castle Inn

Last year we spent two nights at the Historic Campbell Castle.

Healing Waters

Got a couples massage at Healing Waters, went to the Wichita Art Museum, took pictures at the frisbee-golf park, played some poker the Loft and had dinner at Granite City and Sumo among other things.

Celebrating our 2nd Anniversary in Kansas City

In 2004 we stayed at Country Club Plaza. We did some major shopping. I think this was my very last big shopping spree (brian lost his job not too long after). We enjoyed food at PF Chang’s, Cheesecake Factory, Kona and Reverse.

Brian and Ching

The year before that Brian and I had dinner at Red Rock, went dancing and stopped by Priscilla’s for some new toys.

Edible Undies

So there you have it. The last four years of anniversaries, Brian and Ching style.

We had initially planned on going on another cruise for our fifth anniversary but now I’m rethinking the whole thing. I’d rather not go in July or August because there will be way too many children on the ship. I’m thinking September might be a better month. However, I’ll be in school next year.

So we are thinking of probably hitting Vegas in August 2007 and saving the cruise for September 2008. Hopefully Brian will win us some money in Vegas so we can pay for our cruise in 2008…

Yeah, right! Better start saving now. =P
