Date Night

Date night since the birth of our third child last November is a rarity.

We usually eat dinner at home with the kids running around, yelling, telling jokes, crying because they don’t like what I’ve made and talking over each other and us. So when my parents agreed to babysit so we could enjoy a night out, we jumped at the chance. Not only was a dinner with no one asking you to get a drink, a second helping or clean up a spill every 5 minutes, an attractive offer, so was the chance to enjoy each other’s company and talk with out being interrupted by our chaotic bunch. We wanted a casual place we could laugh, talk and enjoy ourselves so we ventured to Iron Hill Brewery in Maple Shade, New Jersey. It’s perfect with its atmosphere,  brewery and extensive food selection, which is important because although I’m more of a salad type girl while my husband enjoys a enjoys burger every now and again. They’ve got something for everyone. During dinner we had a great time, talking uninterrupted and laughing a ton, my husband always has a way of bringing out my silly side.
Case in point, my video post for this mission. I wanted to highlight the amazing Navigation System that took us safely to our destination, even wrong turns couldn’t shake the calm voice that takes you turn for turn and gets you out of even stickiest situations. I  wanted to highlight, the remote start and warm seats that some how comforted our nicely full bellies, the dimming rear view mirror, that made even the brightest lights a smooth white,and the ease of the turn signal, switching lanes required a light touch of the handle allowing the signal to softly click 3 times to alert the cars behind you of your impending lane switch, instead of switching it on and then off again. But like I said, I was giddy and apparently so was my husband.
Date Night in a luxury car, instead of our usual mini van, no kids to disrupt our meal and a nice night out, brought out the silliness in us both.

The Philly Mom’s Time Out campaign is being sponsored by the Philadelphia Area Chevy Dealers who gave the chosen bloggers a 2011 Chevy Traverse to test drive for one month and blog about our experiences using the vehicle. Philly Mom’s Time Out has given us some fun missions to go on and and will be providing us with gifts cards to allow us to do so. All opinions are my own.
