Date Night - With the "Kids"

Dinner and a play. Still one of the best dates ever, in my opinion! Who'd have thought as we were raising the kids all those years ago that we would actually choose to go out on dates with our kids in later years? Now, we are finding that those times spent together are more precious than ever!
Last night, we went out to eat pizza with Anne and Jed first, and then to our local high school to see the musical/play West Side Story. It was such a fun experience as Anne could show Jed where she spent four years of her life, and we could see many of the kids we knew in the play...from church, former preschool students of mine, and kids Anne babysat when she still lived at home.
There's nothing like the energy of youth to revitalize those of us in the older set! And, there's nothing like being entertained at the restaurant table by a daughter who did this to her finger with a pen from my purse and a discarded paper napkin ring! H A P P Y T I M E S !

Thanks for the fun night, guys! We had a blast hanging out with you both, getting pizza, and of course seeing a great show at good old LHS. Thanks again!
