1} We had a close call yesterday and it makes life and our children all that more precious. I was sitting by our 3 ft deep pool yesterday. The kids were swimming- our 4 year old was floating around with a plastic floaty. The next thing we knew her head was underwater - she had flipped over the floaty and her legs were kicking in the air. Thanks to the Lord, Dave was walking by the pool and heard our eldest boy yelling her name. She got pulled out and all was fine. I am so thankful to the Lord. So thankful. It really makes you realize how precious life is and how quickly something really awful can happen. Thank You, God, for our kids and for keeping them safe. Thank You, thank You.
2] Dave surprised me with a babysitter and date night on Thursday evening! What a great surprise! We had so much fun. We ate at Ruby Tuesday and I had the most wonderful Watermelon Fizz (club soda, watermelon juice, limes, and mint leaves- mmmmmmmmmmm). Also, chicken fresco and Dave had trout almondine. Yum. Then we went to Pier 1 and TJ Maxx (where Dave bought me the cutest black hat), then to ColdStone Creamery for cake batter ice cream in a waffle bowl. What a sweet night with my sweetie. Thanks, Dave, for the surprise :)
