Yesterday started off like a normal Friday. We walked to school, and by the time I pushed that big double stroller up the driveway, I was sweaty and hot. A little while later Nate called with the most glorious news. Well, nice news for us. I am sure it caused a lot of problems for others, and I hope everyone is okay. The power was out at the hospital! He was finished for the day.
On his way home he had stopped to get a brake light fixed, but then decided to just do it himself. Good thing too...it was easy and inexpensive. Natalie helped him.
I had the idea that Nate should go surprise Jansen at his school and have lunch with him. As he was walking out the door, I told him to make sure and get some pictures...but that didn't end up happening. I have just recently forgiven him. :) He also stayed through recess and spent some time helping in the classroom and reading Junie B. Jones to the class. Jansen loved it.
And then he came home to have lunch with Emmy.
We used a Groupon to try a place called Teriyaki Madness for dinner that night.
And then the best part of our day...our date! I don't think we had been on one since May. We went down to the Venetian and took a ride on one of the indoor gondolas. Usually you have to share one, but it worked out that night and I got to ride alone.
There are so many tourists and visitors in Las Vegas. Lots of them were taking pictures of gondola riders. There one was one particular spot when we were heading under a bridge that lots of and lots of cameras were flashing. I felt like Lindsay Lohan. Hahahaha.
This is our gondolier in mid-song. He had a great voice.
Nate planned this date, so he gets all the credit. One of the main reasons we came to the Venetian was to see one of Peter Lik's galleries. We were in love. We want so badly have one of these in our home, but they come with quite the price tag, so we will just have to dream. What a fun Friday.
