Date Night

So I realize that Family Home Evening is supposed to include, well...the family. I'm not sure if we just didn't think about that, or if we just got our timing wrong or whatever, but for FHE (minus the family) last night we went on a date to Annie Get Your Gun. I loved it! I love that Dan will take me to things like this. I love that it was his idea! I love that G & G Christensen are willing to watch the kids for 3 hours (okay, they were in bed, but the baby wasn't, and there have been plenty of times that they've kept the kids up because they'd rather have them awake...crazy eh?) I love the theater. I love that we live so close to a theater (even though we drove because Dan was on call and didn't want to have to walk home should some emergency arise. Luckily it didn't, but he did inform me that we are never going to a show again while he is on call. He had a death grip on his phone the whole evening and couldn't relax enough to just enjoy...poor guy). I love musicals especially. I miss the theater. I miss being a part of it, and I sat there wishing that it was possible to do again...but then I was thinking that really...maybe not. I won't go into detail about everything I thought of (I was thinking about it for most of the show...7:30-10 you do the math...2 1/2 hours if you needed help)but suffice it to say, that I loved doing it, and probably won't ever do it again. I was also thinking that Frank totally wasn't good enough for Annie. I realize I shouldn't judge, he was her choice, but seriously folks...I'm apparently missing something here. She was too good for him, but I guess if they were happy together then that is all that matters. I'm glad she stuck up for herself most of the time though, and didn't let him walk all over her. I love how naive she was though. Innocent, in a not so innocent way. I'm not explaining this well, but the points that I am trying to make are 1- I'm glad Dan took me on a date 2- I love the theater 3- I'm glad Frank is not my husband and that Dan is nothing like him. Yep that about sums it up.

There are times I really miss choir and high school. Not really the drama, but the excitement that you have and to some extent the freedom. I will always remember you and Michelle playing two old lady killers. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard. And if the rumors I've heard were accurate you probably heard me laughing! You were great at performing and I can understand some of the nastalgia for time gone by!

Date nights are awesome. People who are willing to watch your kids while you go on dates are awesome. Combine the two and you have pure bliss.

It also makes it more affordable to go to play when you don't have to come home and pay a babysitter:))) Even more enjoyable

Ahh.. Love that show! So glad you could make it! And glad the kids were already in bed when you left.. one less thing to worry about while you're out.. :)

I've never seen that one. You've made me interested in seeing it now though. Kind of doubt Matt wants to see it. He's taken me to plays, but theater is definitely not his first choice.

So I debated on Calling you back about our cruise or reading and commenting on your blog, I knew you'd apprieciate this more ;-) The cruise...words cannot describe...you have to go to know what I'm talking about. I'm so glad Dan took you on a date that you'd enjoy, it shows he's thinking about his beautiful wife, I grew up with my mom doing theater and I loved watching her, but I really don't know how much time it took away from us. Yea for living in St. George with wonderful granparents who will watch and play with your children. ;-)
