Friday night date~



So I went on a date tonight~




I had so much fun~





We started at the school BBQ, with games, a bouncy house, and popcorn.





For a moment, I thought he might ditch me in favor of one of my very favorite girls in his class.





We decided to skip the school food in favor of visiting our favorite sushi restaurant. It was so nice to sit and visit with this young boy. You hear so much more when you take them out and spend time alone with them.



~what looks like a rumble in the making is actually three really nice boys talking in the bouncy house line...


After sushi we went to his favorite toy store here in town where we walked around looking at all of the treasures there.





I can't tell you how many times he said to me "thank you mommy for taking me out and spending this time with me".

I do adore that little man~

those are the best dates ever...the ones with our kids! if the truth be told, all kids really want is time alone with their parents. it sounds like your happy weekend is off to a wonderful start.

What a great time you both had. .....and these times are very precious. My children are all grown up now and those times seem so long ago. Do it often as. it won't be long before they are off hand and leading their own busy lives but you have made some wonderful memories there. XXXX

I just stumbled upon your blog ~ it's lovely.

I love date nights with my husband and children. You are so right about getting them out of the house and alone ~ that's when they really "talk" to you.

Have a wonderful weekend ~
