Last night, after Nick and I put Piper to sleep, my sister came over to watch the monitor so we could sneak out for a little date night.
We didn't decide on what we were doing for date night until we started to drive. It was one of those nights where you ask, "right or left?" as you're sitting in the car at the end of the driveway. I said, "let's just go right" and before we knew it, we ended up driving right up to a local putt putt golf place.
I'm not sure, but I am fairly certain that it's pretty much impossible to play putt putt golf without a smile on your face.
We arrived at the greens right as the sun was starting to set. The weather was absolutely perfect, it was a warm summer night and the view was unbeatable. I felt like we were in putt putt heaven.
Nick and I played putt putt until it was dark. We had so much fun, we laughed until we cried. It made me feel like we were back in high school, again. I feel like that's one of the best things about being married to your high school sweetheart; when you're alone with them, it's easy to forget what age you are. We definitely didn't act our age last night.
After we were done with putt putt golf, we drove down the road to a local restaurant that is situated right on the lake. Almost all of the seating is outdoors, which makes for a really beautiful dining atmosphere. The lake was beautiful at night, I loved watching the lights surrounding the lake danced on the water as the two of us drank some beer and shared a pizza.
The best part of the night was actually at the restaurant. There was live music that was playing as we sat there at the restaurant on the lake. The musician turned out to be someone that use to sing in a band that Nick and I use to listen to when we were in high school.
Hearing his voice was like a blast from the past. We couldn't believe it was him, and we couldn't believe that he was singing that night at that restaurant where we randomly decided to spend our date night. Nick kept looking at me saying, "this is the best date night ever" and "I can't believe we get to hear him sing live again". I couldn't agree more. This was the best date night we've had, yet. So much fun!
