Date night away!

24 Jan

Yesterday, Ryan & I went to Shreveport, Louisiana for a date night getaway! It was a blast! Thanks to Jen and her high status at Hilton with her free points & perks, we were able to stay in a very nice hotel for free, right on the river. We walked around the Boardwalk, which has a ton of shopping & restaurants right there along the river front. We went in to the Bass Pro Shop and gazed through the camping section, planning our next camping trip for early summer. For dinner, we ate at Saltgrass Steakhouse & wow…it was SO good! We originally thought we’d do cajun food, since we were in Louisiana and all…but we’ve always heard that Saltgrass was good, so we thought we’d try it out. We were not disappointed! We stopped by one of the casinos and played a few slot machines…penny slots of course and no, we didn’t hit the jackpot. Then, a trip for icecream and back to the hotel. This morning, we got up for a quick 3 mile run & a nice breakfast at the hotel restaurant before heading home. It was a blast. Ryan & I have always felt that having date nights are very important in a marriage. Away from kids, away from everything. A time to reconnect, talk without interruption, enjoy a quiet dinner, and just spend quality time together. Here are a few pics from our night…

And here is a pic my Mom sent of the girls staying the night at her house…I think they had just as much fun as Mommy & Daddy did!
