My in-laws are in town this week, so naturally my husband and I took advantage of them being in our house and headed out for a date night last night. A few days ago the chatter around our house turned to finding something to do on date night. Typically we just go to dinner, since we are paying for a sitter at home, but with a free babysitting service we thought we should branch out and do something different!
Here is how our conversation went...
While doing the dishes:
Me: How about bowling?
Me: No, I would rather go to dinner.
Brushing our teeth:
Hubby: How about going to see a movie?
Me: Too tired, I would fall asleep before the good previews started playing...you know when it is still the dumb trivia.
Walking the dog (and the baby of course)
Me: How about going to a bar?
Hubby: We would walk into an empty bar at 6:30 at night and want to go home when the first people started arriving at 9pm.
Me: I probably would want to leave before 9:00
Playing with A:
Me: How about getting wasted and finding some horses to ride?
Hubby: no acknowledgement
Me: Do we have any errands we need to do without a baby in tow?
As we are feed A dinner on Friday night (aka date night)
Hubby: How about Kona Grill
Me: Dinner, perfect!
Seriously, we tried...but what is there to do when you are parents: meaning nothing that can involve jail time, too late of a night, anything permanent, or leaving the state? Yeah, I couldn't come up with anything either. We did have a great dinner though, and it was getting late so we brought dessert home to enjoy on the couch :)
