M was the last of the 4 kids (the ones who were aware of their outings - sorry C!) to go out with me. She was mad about being last but then I reminded her I still have to take C somewhere (it will probably be Dunkin Donuts - because she's almost two). Anyhow, the swimmers and I raced back from the swim meet to make me and M's date night possible.
We started out with dinner at Lou's. It is a pretty fancy place for us and reserved for special occasions - aka that's our Father's Day dinner spot. We snacked on sweet potato fries and tried to patiently wait for our food but there was a bball team there (with parents) so party of 20 tosses a monkey wrench into the kitchen. Anyhow we got our food and we were both full from fries so passed on dessert (Skillet Cookie) but we stopped and got M dessert from the candy section - PB M&Ms - a girl after my heart. She refused to let me sneak them in but I think she would have much enjoyed the show more if she had a snacking distraction.
We went to go see the Seussical Jr. One of the schools put it on and it seemed like a good fit for M's night out. They like watching Dr. Seuss on PBS.
I am quite sure she was bored about halfway through and I almost let us go but we were in the middle of a row. I think it would have helped a lot if she was familiar with Horton Hears a Who and Horton Hatches an Egg - but those aren't in our Seuss repertoire.
Regardless, she told everyone she had a fun time.
