Date Night-Finally!!!

Last Saturday Brad and I went on our first date in almost 13 months!!!

It was much overdue. We left Hailey with Brad's parents around 6:00 and headed to Fridays resturant to eat. It was so nice sitting there, having an adult conversation and not being interruppted. After that we went to Goofy Golf. We were going to go see a movie but decided we rent movies and watch them all the time, we wanted to try something new. We rode the go-karts 4 times and we were going go play put-put but ran out of time. We had so much fun (although i got 6 huge bruises on my back from a little boy thinking it was funny to hit everyone)
We went back to pick Hailey up at about 10:15 and she had already fallen asleep. So we went over to a friends house to watch the UFC fights. After they were over Hailey was still asleep so we decided to leave her there overnight! We have never left her for more than 5 hours before so we were both a little nervous about how she would do or what she would think if she woke up in the night. I was expecting a phone call around 5:00am, Hailey always wakes up then, but i didn't get one. When i woke up in the morning i rolled over and looked at the clock and it was 9:52! I couldn't believe it! I hurried and got dressed and practically ran over there.

She was playing outside with her grandma. She was fine and did so good. She did wake up around 5:00 ate a little bit of a poptart, played for about 30 minutes and fell back to sleep. I was so nervous only because i still breastfeed. I fed her saturday morning and was going to feed her when we got back saturday night but she was already asleep. So she went a full 24 hours without being nursed!

We had alot of 1st that night, 1st date night, 1st time leaving Hailey overnight, 1st time not nursing her. This is kind of exciting for me, i've realized i can go and do more things now and that she will be fine with someone else. Brad and I have decided we want to do this every couple weeks. We really needed that time together.

My husband and I do this once a month. Sometimes we leave the kids overnight and sometimes we don't but it has made our relationship stronger and better. Thank God for family!

Oh I'm so happy you guys had a great time! I've been wanting to go mini-golfing and go-carting for a while now. I'll have to mention it to my hubs.

And how nice to get a whole overnight together. Glad Hailey slept so well. Hope you guys can do this more often. :)

It's always nice to get away even for a little while - congrats on all of the 1sts! My hubby and I need to do date nights a lot more often than we do. :)
