Date nights are not something that TechyDad and I frequently get. Life just gets really busy and we never seem to coordinate a time to go out. Sure, we watch movies at home when the kids are asleep. Sometimes, we even break out a board game like we used to before having kids. Still, it is nice to go out to a child free dinner at a location more for adults.
On Saturday night, my parents offered to watch the boys so we could go out to dinner. We had a Restaurants.com certificate to use at a local restaurant called Mangia. It was the night before Halloween and pretty quiet when we got there. We decided to share an appetizer (we hardly ever do this) and decided on our meals. Here is what we ordered:
It was a very nice meal and delicious (even reheated the next day for leftovers). We tried not to talk about the kids too much and focused on other items. We planned sitting down and testing out some new games that we had to review and making time to watch a movie that I took out from the library. It was a great meal and very relaxing. With any luck, we will be able to get out again before my birthday in December.
So my question for you today:
If you have kids, do you make time for a date night with your spouse? For everyone, what would your ideal date night be?
