Family Date Night

Saturday night was our first Family Date Night!  It was a huge success and I hope this becomes a monthly tradition.  We started off at 4pm after Scott came home from work.  We surprised the kids with dinner at their favorite restaurant, The Olive Garden.  We could not believe the crowd, who eats that early??  Despite the wait we had a very nice dinner and then came home for a Pajama Party.  Once in jammies we played Just Dance on the Wii and got really hot and sweaty.  Z decided that the perfect way to calm down was to build a nest of pillows (an idea from Kara Fleck on Simple Kids) and listen to a Sparkle Story (our new favorite thing).   It was super relaxing and a really great story.

Our Family Date Night was all about family, love and togetherness.  The perfect way to take some time to be together and celebrate an early Valentines Day!

We're doing a family date night tonight with our friends too. Dinner at Lemon Grass, favorite Asian occassion, but I don't think our friends are up for sweaty dancing in PJs
but the after dinner pillow seems likely for all.
Love yu guys.
