Date Night

On Saturday night Ben and I finally had a date night! We got a baby sitter for the kids and went out. We had 5 lovely hours to kill and no real plans. First we ended up at the movies and saw "Grown Ups" - very funny :)
Then we went to dinner at Applebee's. On our way there we started laughing about how long it has been since we went to Applebee's. We used to go there EVERY Friday or Saturday. While we were in the car we realized that we have never even taken S there so that it at least a year since the last time we went. Life sure changes when you have more kids!
After dinner we still had 2 hours before we had to be home. We decided to drive up to the mall and ended up seeing a carnival in their parking lot! I thought that was odd but I love carnivals at night time! It was funny to walk around and not stop at ever kiddy ride, but we did go on the Ferris Wheel. It was so pretty with the dark sky, an almost full moon and all the rides lit up. I didn't expect to end up on a Ferris Wheel that night :)
Anyway, we had such a great time being ALONE and together. We are working on making that a normal thing. :)
