Last weekend Stephen and I went on our first double date since having Sarah. We went to lunch and then to a movie with our awesome friends Brandon and Nicole. We didn’t go to just any movie either, we got to go see the last (and best in my opinion) Harry Potter movie. I wasn’t sure how it would be, being away from Sarah for 4+ hours, but we had an absolutely fabulous time. At first I felt kind of guilty for having such a good time without our little girl, but I know it’s healthy and needed to have “grown-up time” with friends and each other.
In order to go out my parents offered to come over to our house to watch Sarah for the afternoon. They also had a great time

We met Brandon and Nicole at La Hacienda and filled up on some yummy mexican. I definitely ate my fair share of chips and salsa! After lunch the guys dropped us at the theatre so they could go get some snacks. I actually baked chocolate chip cookies the day before and *might* have brought a ziploc baggy for each of us We got there over an hour early and it’s a good thing we did. Nicole and I picked out some great seats and we watched the theatre fill up every seat. Before it started filling up we snapped a picture of us while we excitedly awaited the movie to start.
We had such a wonderful return to the double-dating world. It is so great to know that we have great friends and family nearby to help us laugh and relax.
I know we will have many more fun outings to report about, some with Sarah, and some without. We are enjoying this new adventure so very much. The Lord is good!
