Happy Anniversary, Baby!

Ooh--Pirate Pak Day at White Spot!  I tried to convince my Sailor we should celebrate our anniversary in style with a couple of Pirate Paks.  Just like I wasn't able to talk him into a Vegas wedding officiated by an Elvis impersonator, I couldn't sell him on White Spot to mark our anniversay.  Luckily, he had a good idea of his own...
