Old School Date Night

Photobucket

Rory and I have recently started "date night".
We used to do it when the kids were little ... when we could put them to bed early.
That's not so easy now that Jono can tell time !
ha ha

Last week, Rory's parents were up for the weekend and agreed to watch the
kids while we had a date ... an outside the house date !
Since we are watching our budget,
we decided to get a some nice
crackers, a soft cheese,
some olives and
a nice dip.

We started our night with a walk along the beach.
The photo above is the only one I took the
whole night. I just couldn't resist
that sun poking through those
clouds ! Glorious, no ?
After our walk
which was
windy,

we
made our
way to another
beach and parked ourselves
on a blanket and had a picnic by
streetlight ! It was lovely but when the
light night started we decided to move on.

We walked the esplanade for
while in search of a nice
dessert. Didn't find
anything that
took our
fancy.

So
we came
home.

It
was so
nice to just
spend time together.
Tonight is date night # 2.
We'll be home. Rory planned it.
Since we have borrowed season 7 of 24
on DVD, we're going old school date night.
Rory has bought some chips, dip and COKE !
We're going to stay up late watching episode after
episode of 24 ! I haven't had a coke since we were in Denver
for Christmas 2008 so I'm sure the caffeine and sugar will do their
job and we might get through the whole season tonight ! ha ha. We might
though. We watched the first four last night so we only have 20 hours to go !!
We are planning to hit the BBQ's at the beach early tomorrow morning
though and have a pancakes on the beach breakfast before church.
Hopefully we will be able to drag ourselves out of bed !
We shall see !

Sounds lovely...I miss my late nights. With a newborn I am wanting to crawl in bed by 8pm!
