Date Night

Tonight, is date night!

Steve and I are maybe a little bit more excited than Jax about this…

Grandma Jan has been coming over once a week to spend time with Jax. We are so thankful for our family! Jax loves his “dates” with Grandma – they read stories and talk to each other and snuggle. They have a blast together! It’s basically Jax’s favorite day of the week because he gets to talk to someone other than mom and dad!

Since Jax is taken tonight, that means Steve and I get our own date night, too! Tonight, we will go pick up my finished pottery. Over the last 10 years, I’ve been doing pottery as my “zen time.” I love the feel of the clay and the zone of the wheel; I love creating useful art with my own two hands. It’s been a hobby that has and will always be something I love doing.

When I was pregnant with Jax, I had these grand plans to make a bunch of pottery with dents that looked like they came from my huge belly. I would call it my “baby bump collection.” Well, that obviously didn’t happen, since I barely grew a belly anyway. After a year hiatus from the wheel, I was able to get back into the studio this winter. It was one of the best sessions ever! I can’t wait to see the finished product – it’s like Christmas for me today! I’ll post some pictures tomorrow, if you want to see them.

After we pick up my creations, we’re going out for dinner at Teresa’s. Finally, we have a decent Mexican restaurant in town and we can’t get enough! (Good Mexican food is something I really miss from my time in San Diego.)

So, tonight will be a great night with “dates” all around! Good thing, too, because tomorrow Jax is getting the other half of his 6 month vaccinations and that’s no fun.

Hooray for date night with Grandma Jan!
