Date Nights

We started a new rotation in our family: Date Night. We picked Fridays. Corinne, being the first child, gets the first Friday of the month. Mason the second, Ethan the third, Tony and I the fourth and should there be a fifth Friday, we go on a family date. The child picks a parent and an activity. We all enjoy it so far. It gives each kid a chance to have some one-on-one time with a parent and do something that we would normally say no to. They usually pick dinner, going to an arcade, playing with animals at the pet store, a movie, etc.

One of our family dates was to play putt putt. I really don’t like putt putt. REALLY don’t like it. Somehow being with the kids made it more fun. Taking along the Woolfs made it super fun.

Mason took the whole thing very seriously. I love his sunglasses on top of his head.

Tony is hoping to instill a love of the sport so that he finally has someone to golf with down the road.

Steph makes everything more fun. I love that she loves my kids.

This month doesn’t have a 5th Friday for us to go somewhere all together. The kids are a bit sad about that, and that makes me happy. They want us to be together. I think the plan is working.

  1. That is a really great idea. That would be fun to do once Tim is out of residency and we have a little bit more consistent schedule. Thanks for sharing!

  2. How fun! I’ll have to share that idea with my sister. So glad you’re getting caught up with your blog posts. Love seeing the pics.
