Date night ridiculousness!

As previously mentioned, we have date nights on Tuesdays. This month, we're seriously trying to attack our budget and be good stewards of our money, meaning we have none to eat out on. Never fear - Chick-Fil-A is here!

My in-laws gave us some gift cards for Christmas, so we used one for Chick-Fil-A last night. It was an experience, to say the least. As we pulled up, we noticed a lot of Valentine's Day decor - and I mean a lot. Except, included in the pink and red hearts and pink and white balloons was a healthy dose of black - for Valentine's Day....Bitterness? Not sure.

As we came inside the store, we saw guys standing around in tuxes, a table set up to make Valentines and a whole lot of commotion - including a harpist and an old lady reading children's stories.

Someone came over to tell us it was Family Night (it was Tuesday...right) but that they were also doing a special date night, thus the maƮtre d's and the lady playing the harp in the dark section of the store. Don't worry about there not being any lights on though - candles set the scene for romance! Ha.

So there we sat, with our chicken sandwiches, candles and harp music. Lovely, right? It looked like the separation of family night and date night didn't last long though - soon enough, the lady reading stories asked for volunteers to sing and we were serenaded by a bunch of seven year olds singing Itsy Bitsy Spider, in between the musicians' 3 attempts at "Edelweiss."

It was a fun experience. A thought it was one of the best date nights yet - free food provided by the Vanderburgs and a whole lot of entertainment, provided by Chick-Fil-a and children. Here's a short clip to prove it all really happened. (Surprisingly, a video without Ben!) Please notice the bored looking father on the right side of the screen - staring off into la-la land while his daughter has a jolly good time with her balloon :)

Just so you don't think Ben has been neglected during this season of love, wanted to share a few pictures of how much loving he gets from Daddy. Who can resist these faces?
