Daniel and I are in a season of life where date nights are hard to come by... our last official date was in March, which is a far cry from the year we intentionally went on more than 52 dates. This is partially because we have not committed to finding a reliable babysitter, and partially due to Daniel's work schedule.
I know there will come a time when we will date more consistently again, but for now we will continue to make due with family date nights and be grateful for the evenings we can slip away, just the two of us.
to Daniel's dad and his wife, Friday night we had the opportunity to go on an actual date. While our boys enjoyed pizza with grandparents
we went to the Rock Creek Outlet to shop without distractions, and then
grabbed a bite to eat across the street at the Boathouse Rotisserie & Raw Bar.
We arrived around 6:30 and had a 20-minute wait. The first available table was on the porch overlooking the water. which was perfect for us.
Porch fans and misters kept us cool even though it was a hot summer evening. We had a view of the Bluff District and North Shore with the sun dipping behind Signal Mountain in the background.
Daniel tried the Trout Almandine while I had the Extra Large Grilled Shrimp (they were really huge!). Both were served with a side of olive fries (fried in olive oil) and a cabbage slaw in sesame oil.
We finished up by sharing a slice of decadent Key Lime Pie. It was all delicious.
With good food and a lovely view we didn't want to leave, but we had two little boys waiting at home.
We love our boys, but every once in awhile it's nice to enjoy a meal without having to discuss things like Paw Patrol...
