Dating Again

While Isaiah was gone last weekend, Daniel and I had a chance to date each other again. We had a really fun weekend. We didn't do anything big, we just got to spend the whole weekend together without any distractions. It was really nice. On Friday night we went out to dinner at a nice restaurant on the river front.



After dinner we went to our favorite dessert spot Francesco's. We love gelato year round!




Daniel loved sitting at opposite sides of this huge table they have upstairs.

The next morning we got up early and drove to Longview, Washington for eye appointments. My Uncle is an eye doctor and he takes care of us for free, glasses and all! It is really nice of him and it gives us a chance to see him since he lives so far away. The first thing he said when he saw us is, "Where's Isaiah?" I've been going to him since I was a kid so it made me feel really old.


After our appointments we were probably there for another two hours trying on glasses! The funny part is it was Daniel who was being so fussy about his glasses.
These are the pair that he really wanted but I wouldn't let him get them. He kept going back to them until we walked out the door.
These ones really brought out the color of his skin:)
Here are our old people glasses. Seriously these glasses age us about 50 years!
The scary thing about these glasses is they cost $500.00! I don't know if you can see the bling on the side but that is why. The brand is Diva. I tried on every pair that they have. I loved them because they were all so "blingalized" as my nieces would say, but every pair made me look like an 80 year old lady.

That night we ordered pizza and watched a movie. I know it's not anything big but it just felt nice. It seriously felt like we were dating again but with all the benefits of being married:)

How awesome! See the thing is, you and Dan have never been able to be just married... You've always had a kid. That's so cool you guys were able to enjoy your time together... and get some while you were at it! :)

The glasses pictures are great. Too bad you guys didn't bring any of them home... they provide a kind of intelligent yet disturbed look. :)

How fun! Sometimes you just NEED that, to keep you sane! You two are too cute. I love all the pictures. It is funny how some glasses can make you look older, geesh--the bling is pretty sweet though!
