My guy & I have been really busy lately, it seems.
We didn't get too many at home dates this past month.
He had nights of writing breeding reports & presentations.
He had travels to Europe & to Butte Valley.
I had baby rocking & dish washing & dossier copying & collating.
We got a date night this week.
take out Sushi from Miyuki's on our front porch!
when they found out there would be a date night that evening.
Gillian was eager to help with anything she could.
She swept the porch, cleaned cob webs, & set up floral arrangements.
Peyton wanted to know what we would have for "beezert" &
if they could have some of the leftovers.
Gillian's own "vase-ment" in the blue.
After a warm day, it turned into a chilly evening.
So, instead of the Gelato bars I had in the freezer for dessert, we had cups of green tea.
We took the time to talk about our small group study questions together.
We sat back & relaxed.
Scott told me about work, without constant interruptions.
We did have a few brief interruptions from neighbors.
Such is front porch sitting.
Different from the privacy of a backyard picnic.
I like it, though.
It is nice having a place set up in the front to relax & interact with the neighborhood.
My kids rode bikes with neighbor kids for the first time,
while we waited for daddy to get home.
I love it & so did they. And so did the neighbor girl.
Hopefully we'll get more times like that in, in the near future.
