A Year of Dates: November

Yes, I know I skipped a month.  We went on a family vaction to Florida in October, so with that and the rest of the month being so busy we had to skipped the date night.

For our November date we went to dinner at Bamboo, it's an Asian resturant in downtown Rockford.  I just love the atmosphere and the food is great!

After that we went to a Rockford Icehogs game.  I don't totally understand hockey but I like to go and watch it.

The Ice Hogs are in the colored jersy's.  It was fiesta night so they were giving out free marachas, Dora the Explorer was there and they had a Mariachi band to play in between periods.

The Ice Hogs won 2 to 1.

A Year of Date: September

In September we went to an Antique Flea Market called Pec Thing.  It's at a near by county fair ground and it happens twice a year.  I like old things and I like to figure out how to repurpose old things so this was my playground!


Here is our loot for the day.

The two frames I'm going to repurpose (more on that later).  The bushel basket will either be used for decoration or for some sort of storage.  The little stool I plan on putting in our basement bathroom (when it get's done) for guests to put their clothes on when they go to shower.  I can't wait until the next one in May!

A Big Boy Bike

For Teagan's third birthday we got him a big boy bike.  He was very excited about it at first but it took him until the end of  summer for him to really want to try and ride.  When he actually wanted to try it didn't take him long to get the hang of it.

So proud of my big boy!

A Year of Dates: August

August was Ryan's turn to plan a date so we went to a place called Volcano Falls Adventure Park. There is a variety of things to do there...putt putt, laser tag, go-karts, batting cages, and arcade, but we decided just to play a round of putt putt.

The course is set up around a "volcano" so it's not just a boring flat course.  One time before Ryan and I were married I came here for my birthday with a bunch of family and friends.  This next picture is for my sister (she'll understand why!). 


It was a lot of fun to just get out and have a little competitive fun.  The score was pretty close the whole time but in the end Ryan won.
