Caleb, at 14 months, is at a really fun age and so eating out is quite the adventure. (Monday night he kept trying to go into the restaurant kitchen and he screamed bloody murder all the way to the car because he liked the restaurant.)
So it was a really nice treat when Granny and Papaw watched Caleb last night so that Frank and I could go out to dinner and a movie. We’ve had breaks and baby sitters before (mostly thanks to Granny and Papaw!) but we’d never just gotten someone to watch him so we could go out on a date.
We went to a new restaurant called the Bonefish Grill complete with white table clothes, candlelight and wine. I had a yummy dish – a fish from Argentina that I’d never heard of and can’t remember the name of – and Frank had a mahi-mahi with goat cheese dish that was even better. Then we snuck our leftover wine into the movie theater and saw American Gangster. A good movie (how could it go wrong with Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe?) and an amazing true story. I’d heard parts of that story but never the whole extent of the drug smuggling operation.
Thanks Granny and Papaw!
