Backyard Date Night

Ane not going out to babysit every Friday means that she’s home to babysit her brothers.  Which means that Friday evening is date night for me and the Webmaster.

I mean, it’s not like WE can actually go sit down anywhere and eat.  We’ve been getting takeout from whichever of our favorite local restaurants are open, and then usually going home to eat.  But today, we sat in the backyard in our lawn chairs, near the blooming lilacs, and had dinner al fresco.

The kids stayed inside and had their dinner, and were waving to us from the window.  But that was all.  We had a lovely hour outside before the bugs really started coming out.

Date night has definitely been one of the better things to come out of this pandemic.
