Just another post

A picture of the end-of-summer bonfire before it burned.  Yes, I am still hung up on the fact that it's over!

We are blessed as a family to be able to spend so much time together during the summer months.  Holly and I are also lucky enough to have received some good advice once in church.  One day shortly after we were married in our ward, an older couple came to speak about the importance of continuing to date while married.  They told an anecdote about a couple they knew when they were young who "didn't have time" to have a date night each week.  "And do you know what happened to them?" they asked.  "THEY GOT DIVORCED!"

A cool pic o' Holly's

The emphasis is mine because it seemed rather extreme and comical, but Holly and I did take the message to heart and continue to have date nights every Friday.  In fact, we even have a list of what we did for date night every week going back to November 2007!  And this past Friday was no different.  We attended a session at the Palmyra Temple (which utterly rocked by the way) and also went out to eat at The Cheesecake Factory.

It's our favorite restaurant. We tried the new Smore's Cheesecake and it was amazing.  And we just found out that one is coming to a location near us.  For future date nights it will be in our sights.  Day two of school was fine today for the boys. Carter read "The Kissing Hand" and made a craft.  It will go into his treasure box which he will appreciate someday.
