Date Night

Jason's birthday was on Monday so we decided to have a date to celebrate his 35(!) years.  I got a great deal through Living Social that got us steak frites and wine at Le Bouchon Bordelais.  My friend Mary-Maye offered to watch Charlotte so we were able to have a proper date night! 

We didn't manage to get a very good picture of the two of us on our date, but I can't entirely blame the waiter who took it.  (Afterall, I did just admit that I, myself, have no clue how to work our camera!)  Taking a picture in a dark room covered in mirrors with a table full of dirty dishes just isn't very conducive to lovely picture taking.

Exibit A:

Although, I did manage to get a very handsome shot of my very handsome husby when we were having some pre-dinner drinks down the road:

And he managed to surprise me (clearly) by getting a not so attractive picture of me at dinner (and then refused to take any more for fear of being rude after the flash accidentally went off).

Despite the less than stellar photos, we had a great time. 

Meanwhile, Charlotte was having a great time with Mary-Maye and her family.  Her daughter Chloe was very excited to hold Charlotte and it seems that Charlotte was quite happy to be held:

Until she dropped her on the floor:

Just kidding.  :)

Mary-Maye came by the next day to drop off some art that her daughters made for Charlotte.  So sweet!  I need to get a bulletin board of some sort so I can display art that Charlotte has made and has gotten from her friends!  Speaking of, I thought this was a great post about displaying kid's art. 

But I digress.  A great time was had by all and we hope to do it again soon!  Before Charlotte was born, we had high hopes of having a date night every week or two, but we have failed miserably.  We are hoping to go for at least once a month though.  It is just so nice to have a romantic dinner out together!


  1. I've just started babysitting for the family I "live with" - too complicated to explain the situation here, but I think I've told you before! They put down my rent in exhange for three babysitting sessions a month. It's only been going for one month now, but I know that they're planning on using two of the sessions for obligations and one of the evenings to just go out and be a couple together without the kids! Very sweet idea.

  2. That sounds like a great situation!

    (For the record, we have some extra space in the shed out back if anyone is interested in a similar situation. It has a private entrance.)
