Date Night...a long over due Date Night!

Well, my little sister and brother-in-law teamed up with my mama and stepdaddy in order to give Phil and I a Date Night.
Katy and Justin watched the 6 kiddos and my mama and stepdaddy provided us with tickets to a Rotary dinner of Prime Rib!!

When Phil and I talked about the last time we went out, we determined it had been over a year and a half!!

This sounds just crazy, but truth be told, our lives are the best. Although it is a season where our alone time is only "after hours", our family time is WONDERFUL!! We wouldn't have it any other way. Everywhere we go and everything we do, our children are a part of it. It is such a blessing to have them in every crevice of our lives.
We thrive this way...our marriage thrives this way...our family thrives this way.

We had a blast on our Date Night and I am so thankful to know that even after 13 years, I wouldn't want to be out ALONE with any other person! I love and adore this man...STILL!
We only stayed for about an hour and a half, I think we were both thankful to get home to our munchkins...plus...

"OLD" I say because I asked my sister, Katy, if I needed to dress up for this Rotary Dinner and do you know what she said?!?!  "No, not really, it's just a bunch of old people!"  She is 22.

I will have you know that 80% of the people there were my age!!!!!!
So, Katy...THANKS A LOT!!!  ;)

Now, it will probably be another year and a half before this happens again, but that is OKAY!!
Our life of "peaceful chaos" (as my dear friend Jen would say) is AMAZING!!
