Last week we were able to have one of those special times. And were did we end up? Arctic Circle!! We had such a fun time ( even though our server seemed half awake and after clarifying our order three times she still got it wrong!). Bethany decided that she liked fry sauce and Havilah learned how to drink from a straw.
Afterwards we went to the park. The girls loved running around and climbing everywhere. They are generally pretty cautious but Lydia especially is stretching herself and even climbed the big rock wall!
Not to take away from my daughter's adorableness, I must tell you about the sweetest thing I saw that evening. A couple was there with their about five month old twins and they had them in one of the baby swings ( above) with one facing each way. It was SOOO cute! I badly wanted to take a picture but refrained for fear of creeping them out!
It was such a special evening and Bethany still thanks God for "going to the restaurant and the park" when she prays at night. I'm thankful that we don't have all the money in the world to do, go or eat whatever we want whenever we want. I'm thankful that we can appreciate $1.00 burgers and fries and playing in the park. I love these precious times with my family!
