Date Night

We don't do it often enough.. we have never used a babysitter.. so when any of our parents are visiting we try to squeeze in a date night or two.. catch a movie, get a massage or dinner for two. It's always initially weird like something is missing.. we don't seem to know what do do with ourselves. No one to feed, to take to the potty, no one to entertain but ourselves. Just us.. him and I.. we can finish a sentence without interference, we can hear each other speak, no one to shush... we had our last one a month or so ago.. what we hardly ever remember to do during all the sneaking out of the house before D spots us is take a picture of just us.. him and I. In fact it's something we forget to do even when we go out as a family.. it is usually him or I taking the picture.. and if we do by some miracle happen to both be in the same photograph.. together there is always a child in the mix.. we need to start taking more.. at least one picture of just him and I during any outing.. here's one we did manage to take during our last date..

Beautiful - date nights are so wonderful. We're the same though - we don't have them often.

Gorgeous couple! We've been enjoying more date nights lately but I remember how few and far between those treasured dates were when the boys were little.

Ah yes alone time and together time can be hard to come by, but rest assured time flies so enjoy the little one now. Cute photos too!

I'm glad you got a night out together. That photo is gorgeous!! Framer, for sure. I think the first time Chris and I went out after kids, all we did was talk about the kids!!

Amanda said...

remembering to take photos on date nights is a good idea! i don't have kids yet, but we still don't take nearly enough photos!

Yay for date night and getting a photo of the two of you! My husband and I try to go out at least once a month and it's always a treat. Your photography work is beautiful!

As much as we love the little dears, it's nice to get away from them every now and then.

Jane said...

Aw this is cute! It's good that you guys get some time to yourselves now and then.
