A new chapter

Brian and I LOVE our date nights.
They havent' been working out real well for us lately though.
Our children are not "little" anymore.
They don't want to go to bed early.
They want to eat what we are eating.
So we decided that date night doesn't work at home anymore.
It's kind of sad.  We love staying in and making a meal for two together.
Life changes though and we need to be flexible.
So we are actually going to go out for our date nights.
What a novel concept to go out for a date!

Brian picked Brasa, what a fun place! I have never eaten at the restaurant, just had it to go.
It was very busy and lively.  People of all ages from college boys to families to couples and even older folks.
Here's what we got
Gucamole and chips
Mexican coke
Rotisserie chicken
Slow-roasted pork
Mashed potatoes and gravy
Creamed spinach with jalapenos
Then we came home and watched The Double, we both thought it was just o.k.
We munched on these yummy ice cream bars which made the movie better.
Fun times with the hubs!
Hope you had a great weekend!

What fun! We've gone through the same transition with finding alone time. The positive to it though is that now we can go out and not have to pay a babysitter!

It sounds like a wonderful evening. Glad you had fun!

Date nights for us is ordering in and watching a movie after babies are in bed. Which I think is still very nice.

Sounds like you had a good time with the "hubs". Enjoy your special dates. PS I think our children really get a kick out of seeing their parents go on dates, it's good for them to see that. :)
