Husband’s parents came to watch Anja yesterday. Husband took the day off work to treat me to…………………a DATE!
Our dates are few and far between, so when they are kind enough to come spend time with our daughter, we sure as heck get out of the house for a while! And what a day–we started with a 3D movie at the Imax theater called Under the Sea. It was narrated by Jim Carrey and had some cute humor worked in, but it was very preachy. Seriously, why does EVERY MOVIE OR SHOW about nature have to have jabs about global warming in it? We think, Yay, fun movie about fish! They think, How many small children can I indoctrinate? Ugh. Conservation is one thing, but this constant barrage of unproven “facts” about global warming really gets my goat. End rant.
After that we had an early lunch and brought home some for his family. Then off we went to the Science Museum. We viewed two new exhibits, Water and Goose Bumps, and saw Grand Canyon Adventure: River at Risk (which wasn’t as preachy simply because its message was portrayed as conservation from the get-go). I’ve never had the privilege of visiting the Grand Canyon, but I think this film finally put into perspective the sheer size of it. Jeepers, it’s big!
Following the museum, we had dinner at the MOA version of Olive Garden, Tucci Benucch. Husband’s tortellini with prosciutto, mushrooms and peas was quite delicious, but I was left wanting something more with my sad little Marguerita pizza. No tomatoes, just sauce. He happily shared with me, though. Isn’t he swell? And he didn’t think my pizza was that bad (did not share my expectations). Guess who will get to eat the leftovers tomorrow? 🙂
We stopped back by the house to change, and then we went and shot hoops at the gym. What a sad pair we were, missing left and right (it has been several years since either of us have played). But we had fun! And I beat him at HORSE twice. Heh heh. Then we soaked in a giant hot tub. The end.
What are you doing for Valentine’s Day? Or not doing?
Unfortunately, the frosted version of these were eaten before I remembered to photograph them. You know me and cookies!
