Friday night it was Tate’s turn to go on a date with Blake and I.
This boy is a GEM.
Just like it was with Eliza’s turn, it was so, so very fun to have him all to ourselves!
First, I got to have some one-on-one time with Tate as we did some shopping before we met up with the guy who buys the coffee!
A stop at Target scored Tate some popcorn while I worked on printing registries to buy wedding gifts.
Everything we did, he would excitedly say “Can I save some for Eliza?!” “Can I get that for Eliza too?!” “I want to buy this for Eliza!”
His heart is just the best!
So I let him buy some Melissa and Doug binoculars.
Blue ones for him and a pink one for Eliza!
He kept them around his neck while we did all of our other shopping.
Blake caught up with us at Sam’s Club.
We grabbed the remainder of the grocery we needed, but the kiddos had done the bulk of the grocery shopping earlier that day!
Pretty soon it was time to head to the coffee shop.
I had packed a snack cooler, and we had stopped to buy some ice cream for Tate.
We let him play the tablet, well, because Eliza had, and they were pretty set on having the exact same date night!
Tate did choose chocolate ice cream instead of mint chocolate chip.
Tate talked and talked (in his usual fashion) and I was SUPER glad that I got to focus on every word he said because there were not others talking over top of him!
One-on-one time is a HIT.
I couldn’t love you more, Tate Owen!!
Yesterday morning started with a wild game of hide-in-seek for Tate and Eliza!
In their pjs and with their binoculars, of course!
Next up will be Lane.
He is CLEAR EXCITED!
So is his Mama!!
I wonder what he will want to do for date night?
I just hope it includes ice cream!!
