a date with two boys


there were two sets of puppy dog eyes staring at me when i awoke on saturday.

one set was attached to robert, snuggled in the yellow blanket, hair damp from a summer night in the country. the other was attached to pablo, nestled between the folds of the sheets, half closed from a lingering dream.

and for the life of me, i just couldn't chose one set. couldn't leave one behind to spend the day alone. so we all three went. on the saturday drive intended for only two. to a little diner hours away where we could get BLTs and sky-high peach ice cream cones. we drank sweet tea out of styrofoam cups and sat under umbrellas. and suddenly, a date turned into a family affair.

one day, i know there will come a time when romance is planned out, and something will happen to interfere. a baby will cry. children will have bad dreams and want to snuggle. it's inevitable. and honestly, after this weekend, i kind of can't wait. we've got plenty of love to go around, it seems.

Judging by the warmth of your writing, you have more than enough love to go around!! I'm glad little Pablo came on the trip as well. How could anyone resist those eyes?! Hee Hee!

Yes it sure looks like you do. We took our dogs everywhere with us. It was always assumed when we went to friends or a party that our dogs were sleeping in the car - except during summer of course. I miss them terribly. Peach ice cream sounds delicious!

So sweet! I sometimes can't stand to leave a dog behind either. They're too sweet.

By the way, I loved the comment you left me the other day. I think the tradition your uncle started is so wonderful!

It seems like mathematically more family members means dividing up the original amount of love, but it truly just multiplies. :) Peach ice cream sounds divine.

I love that romance doesn't have to be planned out too. Most of our dates are spontaneous. :)

Sounds like a great date - and I love that you took your dog too! :-) It definitely does have to be more planned when you have a baby, but we still squeeze in the occasional spontaneous date too.
