Parents' Day Out

It's been three months. 98 days. 2352 hours. 141,120 minutes since Scott and I have done anything fun without the babies present.

We love our babies, as I'm sure you can tell, but that's a long freaking time. In fact, it's even longer than that. Go back to the last trimester.

"I can't eat there. It will give me heartburn."

"I can't stay up past 8 p.m. I'm too tired."

"I can't go to a movie. It's too sunny out."

But this weekend, we broke that streak. (Thanks to Grandpa Rod and Grandma Sue for babysitting!)

And it was awesome — like a high school girl sneaking out to see her boyfriend. I haven't felt that carefree for, well, about a year.

What did we do on our date? We ate at HuHot. Because there are no relationship woes that can't be fixed with a Mongolian buffet. And then we went to Lowe's. Because in our late(r) 20s, we've become excessively cool.
