My wife and I went out on a date. Did we go to a movie? No. Did we go to a play? No. Did we go out for dinner? Yes, but we were not alone. Instead, we met with bloggers.
For our date we had to drive about 25 miles to drop Seth off with a co-worker. We owe her a big thanks, by the way, because we’ve had little luck finding local baby sitters who actually are available.
We then took Lael with us to Shanghai Diamond Garden, which is another 30 miles away just south of Beverly Hills. Our girl only screamed for about half the drive and was not placated by a stop for breast feeding. (By the way, we were only a few blocks from where we first lived when we arrived in Los Angeles.)
Once there, we met up with Psycho Toddler, Doctor Bean and Citizen of the Month and their spouses at the Kosher Chinese restaurant. My wife has long been a fan of Psycho Toddler, who was visiting from Milwaukee, and I’ve been known to hit-and-run comment on his site.
We had a blast meeting them: two are doctors, one is a nurse, another has a PhD in science, one is a language specialist, and the last is a writer. But for the blow-by-blow novella, I’ll just link to my wife’s post ... if she ever finishes. Ah, here’s the post.
While we still had Lael with us, I’m just glad we finally went out on a date!
