My Dad and Mom did date nights with us kids (or at least my aging memory remembers it this way). Perhaps it was a couple of us at a time because there were seven of us, but nonetheless the importance of spending good quality time was taught. So we try to do this with Eliza – we aren’t as regular with it as we want to be, but we are trying nonetheless. I asked Eliza on Sunday what she wanted to do and she replied that she wanted to go to Chuckie Cheese. This likely had to do with the birthday party she had just attended that went there. We had left over tokens from her birthday party almost two years ago and so I was game anyway. We played Skee Ball, Pop-a-Shot, video games, all sorts of games to give you tickets, and had our pictures taken a few times as well (see below). Of course the night was completed with a visit to redeem our tickets for a new play jewelry bracelet for Eliza and then a trip to McDonalds on our way home for some ice cream. Eliza loves M&M McFlurrys. McFlurrys always remind me of the experience Noel and I had in Israel ordering Blizzards from McDonalds. It was amazing that they knew to give us McFlurrys. Anyhow it was a great evening with our princess, Eliza!
