My Little Ladies

are hoping that these silly faces make you smile, and I do to :).
This weekend was WONDERFUL. For Valentines Day Travis surprised me with a date night. He asked my mom in advance to keep the kiddies overnight, rented a hotel room, and we were pretty excited to go away and just relax! If your wondering how married folks like us date, here is the lowdown. We ate at Chilli's. I understand that this is not the most romantic restaraunt ever, but Travis is having quite the love affair with one of their burgers, and since he still is feeling pretty good, I let him chow down. And seriously, who doesn't love Chilli's?
After our dinner, we walked around Smiths Marketplace looking for Easter stuff for the girls. Oh don't be jealous...there's more. We then walked around Borders where I purchased 2 new books to tide me over for a few days.
Now I totally understand that this may not seem like the most romantic night to some of you. There was no candlelight or roses, but for us it was just wonderful. Dinner with no kids, shopping, and books...sounds like heaven to me!
Travis, thankyou for the night away, it was much needed and I love you! Mom, thankyou for taking the kids for a sleepover, they loved every second of it.

Sounds like my kind of date! By the way thanks so much for all of your help. I found something that I like for now, but sometime you will have to show me how you do the scrapbook pages, all of that went way over my head. I would love to learn, I just have to be shown what to do. Thanks again!

how fun. You're right on though, no roses are necessary, just a night out on the town together is super romantic. I am glad you had a fun time!

It sounds Fabulous!! Some of our best dates ever are when my mom will take the kids over night and we even just order take out, and stay home in our OWN beds alone, stress free! Thats what we did. And it was wonderful and I love that Trav did that for you. Because those are the dates I think that mean the most because its not what you are "supposed" to do with the roses and candlelight etc. Im glad you had a good time and Travis is feeling good. THe girls pictures are GREAT!

That sounds exactly how Dirk and I date. Isn't it so nice to take a break from your kids?

I completely know what you mean. to do anything without the kids that brad and I can do together is considered a date. sounds like you guys had a ton of fun. your girls are so cute like always. they put a big smile on face that is for sure.
