Friday Night Date Family Night

J and I typically have date night on Thursdays. It was a long-established tradition that started when he began working for his consulting company. He usually travels Monday-Thursday, coming home Thursday night. We would celebrate his weekly homecoming by going to our local sports bar, Taco Mac! (So much history with the Mac--I even went into labor with Baby C while there!)

Anyway, Taco Mac is family friendly and we used to take C in a sling (J would wear her!) or in her carseat--she slept the whole time! We finally stopped taking C when she stopped sleeping through our dates.

We kind of missed having C with us, though, so we've recently established a tradition of walking ~2 miles to a very family-friendly restaurant in Candler Park--Fellini's.

J loves their pizza, i love their salads and C...well, she loves just about everything about it! And...of course we have photographic evidence to prove it {what first child doesn't have pictures chronicling every minute of their day?}

the fountian is clearly a favorite of C's and ALL the other kids!

well, most of the time:

C also loves it because she can kid-watch. She stares and waves and smiles at them all night long

and, even though we take her after she's already eaten dinner, she always helps me eat the copious amounts of cheese (that I can't eat!) and olives (don't worry--she doesn't choke!) that come on my salads
