This might be stretching it a little bit, but it is the closest we got to a date this week. As I mentioned before, Drew, Jeremy, and I took Audrey, Mason, and Kylee to Chuck E Cheese on Friday. Well, Jeremy got sick there and went home, so Drew and I took care of the kids. We did NOT want to eat greasy pizza (which was a smart decision knowing that it would not be staying down later that night) so we headed to Chick Fil A. Let's just say having a 3 year old, 2 year old, and 1 1/2 year old is quite an adventure. Drew definitely made a comment on how "Mary is a saint!" It's true, she is. ;)
Anyway, everyone had a good time, and Drew and I were able to talk a little about life and kids. We also talked about how easily marriages can break as a result of kids. Children are wonderful, but couples MUST take time for each other alone. Just spending this week with our niece and nephew showed us that we hadn't really talked all week... and they aren't even ours! We both agree it is so good we are establishing "date night" now, before kids. Thanks Lauren for the encouragement to stop thinking about it and do it!
Except for having to climb in the play place to get a scared Kylee from the corner, it was an uneventful trip. Everyone got home safely, and took really good naps! :) As I write this I realize that 'no kids' were part of the rules for date night... but that was your own, right??
