Susan’s 29th Birthday

For Susan’s 29th birthday, I surprised Susan with a night at Pensacola Beach. Prior to heading to the beach, we went to Hall’s Seafood Restaurant to indulge in some crab legs. ¬†Aftersusans29th dinner, I brought Susan to the beach hotel. I booked an executive suite at Pensacola Beach Springhill Suites by Marriott. The room had a private balcony with a Gulf view. The hotel provided a VIP bag, which contained snacks, and a bottle of champagne. I furnished several small gifts and a small cake to celebrate Susan’s last year in her twenties. Although we live near the beach, this was our first night together at the beach. Here is a photograph of us right after we checked into the room. Click on the photograph to view the entire gallery.
