The sweetest day

Daniel and I have been frantically trying to "date each other" today. I think we both sense the end of that era closing in on us, so we are trying to hurry up and have fun being a couple.

Today, we went to a local spring-fed lake. Camp Tonkawa Springs is a popular hangout for college kids and families during the summer, but today we were the only ones there. We took water, grapes, and some magazines. We swam in the clear, frigid water and then dried off in the sun. It was really fun and relaxing. I kept thinking, "We should have done this more often!"

Then tonight, we went and ate Messican food and rented a scary movie. Not that we will cuddle up to watch it or anything, because, there ain't no cuddlin' goin' on with me! But the fact that I am going to watch a movie is a big deal in itself, since that is one of my least favorite pasttimes. We picked up a TCBY that got melty in the car. It is re-freezing as I type.

We have just had a good time being "Daniel and Amanda." I know that years from now I will remember the sweetness of today, and the time we spent together. It is important to appreciate being us before our "us" gets bigger.

I'm so glad you got some "we" time!

Don't worry, you'll have it again, but it will be to talk lovingly and excitedly about your little boy's latest accomplishment in life :) And that is special in itself!

BTW...what scary movie?

I watch scary movies with thumbs in ears and fingers over eyes like venetian blinds. Gets uncomfortable after about an hour.

I think that's awesome. Blake and I have started having "date night" every Friday night where we do something together, just the two of us. It's something we want to try our best to continue after the baby's here, so we're making it a habit now. :)

I am glad you had such a sweet day! It sounds just lovely!!!

My hubby and I are starting a date night. We thought it was time to do things just us, you know, with all the other people in our lives taking up our time!

maybe you should start gathering photographs and scrapbooking your memories as a couple. because, for the next twenty plus years, maybe the memories will fade. and you'll need something to remind you what it used to be like.

aren't you glad i am such an optimistic person today?
