Dinner at the Hotel DuPont

Last night we had an amazing dinner at the Hotel DuPont in Wilmington. Back in June, Martin won the gift card by playing in charity poker tournament and winning 3rd place. We decided to use the gift card to celebrate our engagement anniversary, which was earlier this month. Even though it had been 6 months that we'd been waiting to use this, it was so worth the wait!

This picture is the Green Room, which is the main dining room, but was closed for kitchen repairs last night, so we had dinner in the Bradywine room, which is very similarly gorgeous!


Our food was amazing! We had grilled ceasar salad with crab meat which was half a head of romaine that was literally grilled and then topped with huge lumps of crab meat and a great ceasar dressing. For dinner Martin had a seafood pot pie and I had duck with scallops. The food was really great, and we were able to get some unique dishes which added to the experience. We never would have gone here without the gift card, so we were so thankful to have this amazing opportunity!

Emma spent the evening with our friends from church, Jason and Megan, and she enjoyed playing with her friends Jake and Madison! Look at those cute girls!
