Date Night

Last week we had the good fortune of family visitors, and not just ANY family visitors, but Kim's folks. Sam and Maggie enjoyed having Grandpa Doug and Grandma Pam in the house- Sam got lavish attention, shopping and treats galore; Maggie got a Cold Stone Creamery outing with Grandpa, shopping with Grandma, and quite a few games of Mexican Train.

Kim and I, in addition to wonderful company and seven days worth of happy hour, got date night out on Friday.

We spent it downtown, at Lola, where we enjoyed a lavish and delicious dinner. We started with crispy bone marrow for an appetizer, which was sinfully rich. For the main course, Kim had salmon with chicken confit and I had lamb shank. We split an order of Lola fries, which in their duck-fat-fried, rosemary salt goodness go well with everything. We washed it down with a very tasty Willamette pinot noir.

Here we are in our steppin'-out duds.

And Sammy gets a lipstick smooch from his mother.

Date night: very important! We have one coming up on Saturday. It's a small ensemble (flute, guitar, cello, violin) playing music inspired by the novel "Gilead."

Hope ours is as fun as yours. I'll send a picture of my boys with lipstick kisses, lol.
