TIME OUT . . . WITH OUR CHILDREN. We have decided to try something new with our children this year around their birthdays. It seems like when we get together as a family, there are so many of us and kids running around, that we really don't get time to visit. So, around either our children's birthday or their spouses, whichever time works best, we will take that couple out to dinner. This way we will get some one-on-one time with each couple during the year. We're excited about this!

Our first one is this weekend. We are going to take Jana (her birthday is Friday, the 6th) and her husband, Dale, out to dinner. They get to pick where they want to go (within reason!). We don't plan on paying for their babysitter, but I do think it will be fun to be able to visit with each other on a one-on-one basis. We don't ever get a chance to do something like this, so we're really looking forward to it. I can't believe she's going to be 37 years old!


  1. Mom... I think this is such a great idea. It is a good way for us to get one on one time with you two. I can't wait till you guys come out to see us. Ernie too this time!!

    ps. Do we get a picture of each of these outings?

  2. I'm glad you like it. We had so much fun visiting tonight and all commented on how nice it was. It seems like we never get a chance when we have everyone together including the grandkids. Sorry, we forgot the camera. We even commented how disappointed you would be that we didn't take it!
