Date Night

On Saturday night.... we did the unthinkable!

We got a babysitter and we went out for dinner and a few beers -- totally casual, but it was really, really nice.

We struck up conversations with strangers...

We ate our dinner while it was still hot...

We talked about stuff that didn't necessarily revolve around the 'lil Dubya's continued fascination with his paci, the 'lil Dubyette's desire to use the potty even though she's not ready or the 'lillest Dubya's poop (or lack of) issues.

We laughed at the other patrons and their "fashion don'ts"

And when the babysitter called to tell us that the 'lil Dubyette had made herself throw up.... we didn't panic (she does this a lot)

We've been together 10 years on Thursday..... and this was our first date in a long time..... it was really nice .... and we need to do it more often.

I love date night and even though we have one perfect child that we almost never want to be away from, it is really nice to go to an adult restaurant and have adult food once in awhile.
(Almost is the operative word in that sentence).

Wow- 10 years! Congrats! We, on the other hand, just took Kidlet to the spot where we honeymooned.

Glad you had a great night out :)

I am so jealous. I went to Chuck E. Cheese's with my kids on my anniversary last week.
