Makes My Monday: Bistro and Basketball

When the twins were infants, the idea of conversation-filled "Girls' Nights" and "Boys' Nights" seemed eons in the future. Now that Sarah and Darren are eight, the doubled evenings a deux are treasured...and provide wonderful glimpses into the grown-up kids they're becoming.

Over candlelight, She-Twin and I talked about the cultures and countries that fascinate her, and their varied levels of freedom...
Under Kleig lights, He-Twin and Dad shared camaraderie and courtside banter, assessing the varied success of free-throws.
Fun had by all Makes My Monday.

Oh I am so looking forward to more of that. The great part is Hunter will have 2 and it will just be me and the princess.

Great times! I love having Mom & daughter time and P.J. enjoys his Daddy & Daughter time. Great pictures! I know you all had a great time.

So sweet. I might have to borrow a little gir to try that. :)

We love our date nights with the kids--it's not as often as we'd like, but those times of getting each kiddo off for undivided attention are golden!

Blessings!

how sweet! I can't wait for those days with my kids. My son already gets to go do things with just Dad...and to see their faces when they return...That boys' night was much needed.

Love your pictures.

Love having one on one time with the kids - especially Girls Day/Nights Outs. Last time, Abby and I went to Claire's at the mall and she picked out a butterfly necklace. She was on cloud nine.
