Date Night

• 05 June 2009


















This week's date night wasn't with the Husband, but rather with the other man in my life...my sweet son. At the conclusion of the T-ball season, he received two tickets to a local minor league game so I thought it would be the perfect night out for us both. The evening didn't turn out quite like we thought as the game was rained out, but we enjoyed ourselves anyway. I've realized over time how much individual time with each child means to them. These are truly the memories they cherish most.

A few odds n' ends I want to remember:

* It wasn't until we arrived at the game that he realized he wasn't playing in the game :)

* He kept telling me what a "lucky day" it was and he told me he loved me.

* Three dinners were consumed this night...one before we left, one at the game (free meal for kids the night we attended), and one at Del Taco after. He has a mild obsession with Del Taco and once his auntie whipped out a coupon for a free kids' meal, he was intent on that 3rd dinner. We found out later what he really wanted was the root beer and the toy :)

How cute is he?! Hopefully he will fall in love with the game as he gets older. Thanks for starting him out so young.
