Happy Birthday Louise!
It was a great evening. You only turn 50 once and although we celebrated a few days after the fact, it did turn out to be a good night. We ended up going to the Mandarin restaurant in Orleans as Louise really enjoyed that restaurant the last time we went on Christmas Day in 2016. This time around however, it wasn't as good as we remembered it that
Christmas Day a little over a year ago. The restaurant was extremely crowded and for myself, I had to eat with my elbows squeezed into my side. It was also an obstacle course to be able to get up from the table and make your way to the food section. We were able to cut through another section for a short while, but once a table in the pathway was seated with people, that shortcut was no longer to be.
Unfortunately, you never know what to expect at a restaurant that specializes in serving a buffet. In any case, it was a fun night with family and friends and one I'm sure Louise will remember for a long time.
Happy 50th and may you have many more!
