Date Night

Mark and I went on a date. Not just any date but an overnight Date. Wahooo!!! We have been out a few times since we brought home Hannah (04/10) but we have limited our night time outings due to Hannah's excessive crying at bed time. She has slowly been decreasing the crying time and now almost no crying --but she started out at 2 hours. Yes, 2 hours of crying from our sweet little girl for many months. Yikes! So over the last few weeks we have embraced the kindness of some of our dear friends who are kind enough to love on our kids while we are not here.

We left around 2:3o on Saturday and drove down to Denver. We stayed at a hotel near the 16th street mall - that had a milk&cookie bar --how cool is that?! We ate at Corridor 44 - a neat little Champagne Bar Restaurant in Larimer Square. It was sooooo good. I had a Strawberry Sunrise Champagne Cocktail, a prosciutto-green apple-brie sandwich, and Parmesan truffle fries. It was heaven on a plate.

We also got to go to a Comedy Club - this was my first time! We saw Charlie Murphy (Eddie Murphy's brother). He was pretty funny. Best of all, I loved just sitting next to my husband and listening to him laugh.

The kids did great and spent some time with 2 of our friends that they LOVE.

What a blessed time! The thing I loved most about this weekend away with Mark was that I just got to focus on the man I love.


  1. I am so glad to hear you got to do all that! I wish I lived close enough to be your go-to babysitter. Sarah's wedding was yesterday. I posted some pics to FB. We all had a good time. There were tears but we tried very much to keep a spirit of celebration. Hugs!

  2. hannah and jack were doing awesome this morning at BCM -- they were so happy!! i'm so glad you two had a chance to get away together. yay for you!!!

  3. Good for you guys!! I'm glad you got a night out with your husband. Make sure you do it more often!!!
