I am so glad that we got our date on Saturday. It could not have been a nicer day. The sitter came early so we could finish getting ready, and when we left they had the legos out and were all laying on the floor building things. Later they pulled the mattresses off the beds and had a trampoline party in the living room, had a macaroni and cheese picnic for lunch, and ventured off to the big park at the end of our street. Kung Fu Panda was also on the list of things done...... and like I said, he cleaned up after the kids. Swept, vacummed, scraped off my table..... I paid him very well. He had the boys for 8 hours!
We got there in plenty of time for our session, and turns out that the only other couple there from our ward were the parents of our babysitter! But it was really nice to go and enjoy the peacefulness there.
Afterwards we were rather on the hungry side, and Mark was craving coconut shrimp. Well, the best place for that is Red Lobster! So off we went. At 3:00 there was a 20-30 minute wait for a table for 2, so we put our name down and waited. It only took the 20 minutes, which was nice. I could just sit and eat their coconut shrimp! Maybe some of those cheddar bay biscuits too.... very nice! The waitress was awesome, and the food great. When we finally left, the line to get in was humungous! I was glad we came in when we did, because everyone was going out to eat.... being Valentines Day and all.
When we got back, William did not want the sitter to leave. At all. "NO NO NO!" He's a bit of a daddy's boy, so it was somewhat of a suprise that he didn't want daddy for anything..... And a bit funny to be honest. He finally made it out the door to enjoy the rest of his evening, and we just hung out and chilled while the boys ate their boxes of chocolate- with all of 4 pieces in them.
All in all, a nice day!
