Day 13: Date Night

My parents met us in Oceanside for the week, so we were able to get a DATE NIGHT during our road trip! All of you with kiddos know how important it is to date your spouse!!! Those adult conversations and uninterrupted time spent together, is crucial to keep a marriage thriving.  I learned that from my mom and dad. They set a great example of that when I was growing up. Arthur and I try to go on a date at least once a month. But before our date night, I took the kiddos to swim at the pool and hot tub at Wyndham Oceanside. It’s such a nice swimming area! Arthur Thomas has learned how to swim on this trip and is holding his breathe under water! I’m so proud of him! I remember when Cade was about the same age and we taught him how to swim at our apartment in Fayetteville, now he is a great swimmer! Now Cade helps Arthur Thomas with his new swimming skill. It’s sweet! Then we went back to the condo and got ready for my date with Arthur. The boys were going to go on a date with Didad (grandpa) and Dede (grandma).  We went and saw Wonder Woman. It was such a great movie! I want to be an Amazon!!! Lol! Then we went to The Original Johnny Mananas And grabbed a margarita and chips and dip. We talked about our new business we a launching and our hopes for That! Then we went to Tin Fish, which was a little place to eat on the beach! I got a Mahi Mahi fish taco and Arthur got fish and chips! It was really good! Then we walked to a coffee shop stand on the beach. It was called bistro at Oceanside pier. If you could quote a specific memory verse from the Bible they would give you a discount! I didn’t have the verse memorized that they asked for, but I thought it was a cool concept. The coffee shop is used as a ministry by a local church. What a cool way to reach and teach people! #thegreatcommission Then we sat on the beach, had our coffee and chatted more before we headed home. My parents had taken the boys to Ruby’s, the cute diner on the pier, and they had seen us on our date and hollered at us. It was really cute! Then when we got home, we watched Moana with everyone. It was a wonderful date night with my love, Arthur! We’ve been together almost 12 years, that time has flown by!!!   #dateyourspouse
