Date Night

5:15PM: Finally get home from a crazy day filled with 10 year reunion "supply" shopping; birthday present shopping; a birthday party (a friend of the kiddies); a Costco run; visiting a friend; and a few tantrums/meltdowns.

6:00: Babysitter arrives, DH and I leave for the night. We even leave #4! This must be a real date.

6:32: Get on the BART. I figure we're going into the city (SF). Instead, we got off at the next stop in Walnut Creek. Sneaky DH!

7:00: After walking around down town Walnut Creek, we eat dinner at a fabulous Thai restaurant (and we knew it was fabulous by the small size of the place). DH ordered yellow curry (with a spiciness of 5 out of 5. Yowzah!) and I had to have the basic Pat Thai. We usually get the awesome coconut/curry soup, but we opted for the papaya salad this time. Yumm....I love Thai food!

8:00: For the first time in almost a year, we went to the movies!! We saw Pirates of the Caribbean III. It was great! And for those of you who haven't seen it yet, please stay until the end of the credits. There's more!

11:30: Headed back to BART; made out at the station for a few minutes (wa-hoo!); got back to our stop; drove home...Found that #4 would only take about 1/2 ounce of the bottle; he hungrily nursed. Other than that, all was well on the homefront.

Awesome date. We need to do them more often. Of course, after paying for dinner, the movie, and the babysitter, we probably can't do that again for a couple of decades. :)

P.S. #1 lost another tooth! Her 2 front teeth are gone. I love that gummy grin!

Sounds FUN! I love nights out!!! We are going to San Francisco next month for a weekend away. I've never been there. I'm excited!
