Date nights

This summer Tim and I decided to have individual "date nights" with each of our 4 oldest children. Oh my!! The kids have been talking about "their" special date.. at "their" special restaurant... and "their" special activity NON STOP!!! SERIOUSLY ALL THE TIME!!! I love it! They loved it. During their special night the kids beamed. They were in heaven having a night all to themselves with all of mom and dad's attention. It was all about them. We didn't get pictures of everyone.. at least I can't find them. .. :( but I have a few from Tim's phone.

Max .. Lucky ducky to be our first born!! He was the first one for "date night." We went to Texas Roadhouse {yum}. I have to say that the rolls were a huge hit! {Still talking about those rolls.} And you can throw peanuts on the floor?? Awesome.. weird!! Can't forget about that saddle. FUN TIMES!! Then off to Barnes and Noble. I love a visit to the bookstore. On the way home we went miniature golfing the "right way." Love him and loved spending time with just Max!

Alexander.. Off to Red Robin. This kid was in heaven.. chitty chatting it up with us.. our waiter.. lots of please and Thank yous.. {That's my boy} Red Robin was a huge hit with Mozzarella sticks and mud high pie. Heck yes ... {Still talking about that mud high pie.} We played a quick Watson style miniature golf game and ended the night with swimming. {Spoiled}

With Barrett boy we headed up to Chipotle. I love that place and so does Barrett. Pretty regularly Barrett talks about how we all need to go to Chipotles!! "You get rice.. and chips.. and soda.." :) Then off to miniature golf/Trafalga rides/Grocery shopping! Barrett does not love pastry/ice cream type treats.. but he loves him certain kinds of Candy. So Barrett was really excited to pick out a movie theater size candy treat.

Jacq was last and it was almost killing her to wait for her turn. We made Jacq's special date extra special just for her. We ate at Maglebys. Chocolate cake!! {YUM!} Fresh rolls!! {YUM!!} The stand out for Jacq was the giant root beer the waiter brought just for her. She thought it was amazing!!! After dinner.. we picked out a little outfit for back to school.. {lucky girl} Someone has been a little crazy for a bird.. so we stopped at the pet store just to take a peek. Lastly.. miniature golfing. I still don't know how we fit it all in with that girl!!! {Lucky ~ lucky girl!!}
Tim and I both enjoyed spending one on one time with our kids. It was so much fun to watch them beam and soak up every minute. It has even been more of a reward for me to hear them go on .. and on.. and on.. about "their" special date months after their date. {love them}
