Date Night

Burke Museum, Butters called this a monkey person, I decided I should buy a new bra before I look like this.
He doesn't look happy here but he was beaming the whole time! He had been sick earlier in the week and his skin is broken out, but he's feeling fine.

We decided we needed more one on one time with our kids, so Butters and I went out on a Date Night! At his request, we put on our 'fancy clothes,' I even put on a dress. After DH got home from work, we braved the traffic and headed into the city to the Burke Museum, which was free and open late that night. Without the Princess to distract, we were able to really look at the exhibits this time, ride the giant elevator again and take our time.
Next, we ended up the University village, where went to the book store and bought a book on, you guessed it, Star Wars. We had dinner at the Johnny Rockets diner where the server talked to us like Yoda and he made us this:
We had milkshakes, so Butters ate none of his dinner. We went to the play area, then home and to bed. He felt pretty special, and I tried to rekindle the old flame. It seems most of the time I'm yelling at him about something he's done to his sister, so this my first attempt at more peace.
At home, DH decided to spoil the Princess, they had her favorite dinner-Macaroni and Cheese! They also had ice cream and a special bubble bath.

How sweet! And such a handsome date, too. Zig and I went on a date tonight. We shared dinner, but somehow only I got food poisoning (of course I prefer it that way!)

So who picked up the tab? Did you let Butters? Or did you play the strong woman role and pay?
