Today was Mark’s and my anniversary. Yep, seven years ago today we eloped! So how did we spend our anniversary? We did a quick job of morning rounds and then we…
…went to a CPR/AED training with all our co-workers.
Judy giving CPR to a manikin.
Susan, Cherie (giving infant CPR), and Bob talking with one of the instructors (far left).
For an infant, only use two fingers and depress the chest 1/3 of the diameter, or 1-1/2″.
After giving CPR thirty times, breathe twice, but only enough to make the chest rise slightly.
When you’re depressing the chest, do it to the rhythm of the old disco song, “Staying Alive”, or 100 beats per minute. For children you depress the chest 2″ and for adults it’s at least 2″.
Two more of our instructors. The one with the cap did most of the training.

We took the final test and then cut out early to make an appointment for…
…a couples massage!
Daniel and Sara gave us our massages.
We felt really good after the massage and we had time to kill before our dinner reservation, so we explored Founder’s Square in Fish Creek.
This is an area with all sorts of cute little shops. This one was the original barn built by…
…the Thorp family.
And this was the Thorp cabin.
Mark loved this little store because the first thing he saw when he entered was a display of guns. It also smelled like leather and had other guy stuff!

Mark waiting for me!
This was a fun store with everything musical!
Oh-oh! Mark’s going into the Confectionary!
“I want four of these and four of those…”
We saw candies we loved as kids that aren’t around much any more.
I took this picture especially for you, Mom! 🙂
It’s been kind of misty all day.
We witnessed Fish Creek’s version of the fish boil. It wasn’t quite as interesting as the one here in Rowleys Bay.
We only had a few minutes left to look on the other side of the street. So much to see in so little time!
This toddler was so cute I asked her father if I could take a picture.
We had dinner reservations at The English Inn.
I’ve seen these knights out front every time we’ve driven by and wanted to see inside.
I gave Mark an anniversary card I’d bought at the Harley shop, unbeknownst to him!
I started with a goat cheese and fruit salad, and Mark had baked French onion soup.
Then we split a seafood platter. Yum!
Our waiter took a commemorative shot for us.
On our way out I noticed they had another one of those pansy kaleidoscopes.
This was the mist that had accumulated on our windshield while we had dinner.
It’s been seven of the best years of my life. I love you, Mark!
