This last weekend I arranged to have our kids go for a sleepover at my sister-in-laws house and I took Chris out for dinner to celebrate his birthday that was last week. It was nice to go out and not worry about what time it was or be on a tight schedule. We even slept-in the next morning!
We had a wonderful time together just talking and enjoying each others company. I am glad that we are able to have times like this to spend together, just the two of us! We love our children and also realize that they will only be living in our house for the next 16 to 20 years and then we will be on our own again. We both feel that it is important to work on our relationship every day so that when our children grow up and move out that we still have something to talk about and things in common and most of all Love for each other!
It was nice to have a reason to go out and spend time together. Having time for the two of us will become more of a priority and need to be organize over the next few years. With Chris in school and with me focused on our children as they are learning and growing our time will easily slip away.
Here is a picture Chris wanted to take to remember our night out! Thanks again Jana for taking the kids, you rock!!
