We took these fun photos the day before our Gettysburg trip. We spent a fun day seeing the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence at the National Archives, taking our friend's senior photos at Rock Creek Park (and making him take a couple of us), and eating a waffle club sandwich. You are probably thinking, "Well, could life get any better?" haha jk. You're probably really thinking, "Did she photoshop those eyelashes? And how old is that manicure?" I did. And two weeks old. What I'm getting at is that it was a really fun, great day. But it did get even better.
We left the kids with a babysitter that night for the first time since we've been in DC. I had no idea how much I missed dating Camaron until we actually went on one! Sure, we have date nights all of the time, but the kids always tag along, which is still plenty fun. Although, it's pretty hard to focus on your date when you've got a five-month-old who needs you to stand while holding her and a two-year-old who loves pouring out the salt, pepper, cheese, whatever is pourable onto the table.
And we somehow lucked out and were able to go out, just the two of us, again this weekend! We went to the the new Hunger Games movie. Soooo good, BTW. We honestly couldn't remember what the last movie we saw together was. Had we even been to the movies since Sloane was born? I'm so grateful that we were able to find great people to watch our kids (and that they were able to handle Sloane through her crazy teething stage. We hope it's just teething, anyway). I really hope we don't let so much time pass before going on a one-on-one date again, because I'm a fan.
P.S Any tips on finding babysitters when you're new to the area? We found our first babysitter through urbansitter.com, and others we've found through church and work.
P.P.S. Don't be deceived by the title of this post. Honestly, my most-favorite times have been with our whole family:)
