Me and the kiddos!

Date Night


I felt like an adult again tonight. Nomi and her sister Hope came over tonight to babysit so that Mr. Clean and I could go out on a date. What a huge blessing that was for us. We needed some adult time.

We were actually double blessed. One with the babysitters and two with a gift card to Texas Roadhouse. So guess where we dined at tonight? It was great, we got there around 5:45 pm and we were seated right away. We sat down and just looked at each other in amazement that we could "just sit down" and look at a menu without rearranging kids and getting them situated before we could sit down. It was nice but deep down inside my heart ached because I missed them. BUT it was nice to actually finish a conversation without being interrupted. Anyway, the food was great and the company was even better!

After dinner we ventured over to Toys R Us to exchange diapers because NoNo is already in size 1 and we had a huge box of Newborns. While we were there Mr. Clean and I browsed the store for stuff we might need in the future, prices for baby stuff and of course video games.

When I was finally able to get him out of the video game section we headed off to cruise around with the windows down and hair blowing in the wind. MY hair since Mr. Clean has none. We drove around for about a half hour and then decided to go home and rescue the girls from our kids!

We pulled up to the house and Laney was in her swing and the girls were pushing her and Nomi's fiance (Ben) had baby No No in the Snugli and was walking around the yard with him. It was such a cute picture but my camera was in the house and I didn't get in time to capture that moment.

I have to say that it was a pretty good date night... not like the date nights we used to have but then I wouldn't trade my kids for those days again!
