A Date! A Date!

Rod and I went on a date last night! This will be a date a month for the last two months. I'm stoked! We dropped off our kids around 7:00, found a hoop and played two games of 21 and a game of one-on-one, all of which Rod managed to win. But I put up a fight and not too much of a stink (I'm not always good at losing).

Then we meandered around until we found a place to get a drink (Zellers/Pharmaplus). Found greeting cards for each other and put them back. Bought some toothbrushes and things. Then found a bench, had our drinks, and chatted. All too soon 9:00 rolled around and we had to pick up our kids (God bless our friends who did this so last-minute).

We commented on how like the early days this date was. So refreshing to the spirit. Thanks, God, for the idea.

mmmmm... dates... Your date sounds so much better than dinner and a movie! I love that you played hoops! Isn't it nice to really connect and talk to each other every once and awhile!
P.S. I always thought Jacob had a cool birth date because of Peace Day... I secretly wanted one of my children to have that b-day!
