is it bad that i CRIED when gabriela came back?

Another highlight from our trip to Utah was a much needed DATE with my boy!
When the twins were born Jake lived in Idaho with Dad while I stayed in Utah for 8 months. THAT was rough on him. Too rough.
So having D back in the hospital came with a little bit of unease on Jake's part. I could feel it. We needed some time together. Just me and him.

So, I called him from the hospital...
ME: "Hey buddy! Will you go on a date with me tonight?"

JAKE: "Yeah! Where are we going to go?"

ME: "How about High School Musical 3 and dinner? Where do you want to eat? We can go ANYWHERE you want!"


ME: "You're twistin' my arm kid, but .....well, alright! (it IS my fave after all) I will be there to get you at 3:30. Hey Jake, are you gonna hold my hand? Because Dad holds my hand the WHOLE date when we go out. I think I am going to have to expect the same from you!"

JAKE: "We'll See!"

And hold my hand he did! ALMOST the whole time! I LOVED IT!

When we got to the movie theatre we were 5 min late for the movie. Oh well, we will miss the previews. It IS the Water Gardens theatre. I am sure there will be plenty of seats. Turns out it was a private viewing! When we got there they had to start the movie up for us! That's what you get at 5pm on a weeknight at the Water Gardens!

Jake got a kick out of it. He loved that he could be as loud as he wanted and try out all the seats in the place. And I was content to let him. He was loving it so much and all!

Guess what else you can do in a theatre when no one else is there?! Oh HELLO, bring on the flash photography! Cute little Zack Efron!
And I do have to admit that I really enjoyed the movie! Jake did too!

Thanks for the night out bubba!

I am sure Jake loved every minute of that date with you. I loved the movie too although I didn't cry. Amy! That made me laugh to read that. Let's just blame that on the exhaustion you were feeling okay? Just kidding. I still love ya!
