Once the year ended, we didn't stop "Date Nights". It continued on and for the last 2 1/2 years or so, we have had Tuesday night "Date Nights". It's my favorite night of the week. I get to spend some one on one time with my best friend and we get a quiet evening without the stresses of kids around the dinner table. Let's be honest ... I love my boys and would gladly do anything for them, but it's stressful at dinner time sometimes. I love spending time with my kids. It's one of my favorite things to do, but I also recognize the need to keep my relationship with my husband right and in harmony.
This week, we went on a date and decided to go eat some yummy Mexican Food at one of our favorite places. Then we took a drive down to Trinity Groves. This is an area of Dallas that the city has started to revitalize over the past several years. After building the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge over the Trinity River, the city turned the old bridge into a pedestrian bridge complete with a kids play ground and rock climbing wall. There are lots of restaurants, and places to shop. After looking around, we stopped at The Cake Bar and got a piece of cake. I got Italian Cream Cake and David chose Hummingbird Cake. Both were really amazing!
After basking in our sugar high for a few more minutes, we headed toward my parents house to pick up the kids. I'm so thankful that the Lord has allowed us to live close to our family! My parents always volunteer to watch the kids for us and if they aren't available, my niece does it. That is a major blessing!
Getting to spend time with the love of my life is so special! I wouldn't trade our date nights for anything!
