Very rarely do we get a date night, try maybe twice a year. I know we need to do it more often but the typical things stand in the way; time, money, babysitter or a combination. We were suppose to go to a dinner swearing in the new president for the Agents here but I failed to RSVP in time and our friends were gracious enough to still watch the boys. So off we went to dinner and some shopping although it was mainly to walk off what we ate. We did the typical thing of constantly talking about the kids even though we tried not to but it could be that we were able to discuss so much since we weren't having to shout over the boys and we certainly were not in the habit of taking our time to talk. We have become pretty good at getting out what we want to say quickly and effectively... I think.

On the 26th my sister spoiled her 3 nephews by helping them make gingerbread houses with leftover supplies from her class. I am a little ashamed to say this was their breakfast.
Then it was off to Chuck E Cheese for lunch and some fun. Who would have thought that the kids would just want to hang out on the jungle gym and it was the adults going around playing games. Not only was it just my brother and his wife joining us but my mom and my other brother. Again a day that we didn't do a big party but probably one of the most memorable days he will have.
