It’s amazing how rejuvenated I feel after date night. Now that Ryan is working, date night is something we are going to make a priority. Even if they are really simple, the time away from the kids is so good for me and for them! Tonight we splurged a little bit, and had a really good dinner! I remember Ryan telling me last summer that he had eaten at this little hole in the wall place on the beach, it’s known for super fresh and affordable sea food. It’s a local favorite. You have three choices: Big fish, small Fish, or shrimp! The different fish they have change, but usually it’s red snapper. Well we hit it up tonight and it did not disappoint. We got nearly two pounds of shrimp to eat between the two of us. We were planning on getting a pound, and when I got home and typed in the kg conversion I realized we ordered nearly two pounds of shrimp! It came with lemon, cabbage and fresh naan. Yummm. We had some left over. It was also a treat because we got to drive a car on our date! Ryan has his resident VISA now which means he was able to get his drivers license this week! Hooray! He is driving a car provided from work, it was so nice not having to flag down or call a cab. We will just have one car for a while, so my taxi days aren’t completely done but we had a fun night.
I have been a little under the weather, so nothing too eventful to report on. I’ll post again soon. The boys are all really changing. Royal is about to take his first steps here any day now. He is so delightful, just thinking about that precious Royal brings a smile to my face. He always has the biggest smile, he really seems to just love life. Mr. Finn is so fun right now. Finn’s favorite thing to eat right now is schwarma. I tried to give him a sandwich and he said, “Is this a schwarma?” I told him, “No this is Subway” – his response, “No thanks.”
Hopefully this isn’t the last post for awhile. We’ll be making a few changes this week, so we’ll see what the week brings.
