As mentioned in my last post, Grandma Brim is in town! We are so excited to have her here and Mitchell is blessed to have four wonderful grandparents! Steve and I took full advantage of her free babysitting, and took the opportunity to catch on some overdue dating! While we have been enjoying our usual “staying in,” watching hockey on the couch and playing with our boy, it was also great to enjoy our time – just the two of us! Mitchell is such an amazing blessing to our family, and as much as we both miss him (even if we’re just gone an hour!), we also know we need some “us” time too every once in awhile!
Steve and I are fortunate because we share many of the same hobbies. Playing Sunday afternoon hockey together was one of our favorite dates during our high school years. We both love shooting guns, and working out at the gym. [Recently we’ve been having a ton of fun rock climbing at the brand new gym on Camp Lejeune!] Okay, maybe I don’t have the girliest hobbies, but Steve doesn’t mind because I have fun doing the things he loves! And I still find time for my typical girl activities – shopping, Grey’s Anatomy, arts & crafts, and photography…
So here is a little recap of all of our dates!
I completely failed to take any pictures of this date 😦
But here is a throwback to us… eight years ago… we spend a lot of Sunday afternoons on that rink!
