Night out

Jody and I are stealing away for a date night tonight. Yes, an evening out – without the kids! Aunt Carrie is babysitting and we are going out!

Where will our night out take us you ask?
For a romantic dinner? No.
To a movie? Nope.
A walk on the beach? (Yeah, I don’t know what beach either, but it sounded good.) Guess again.

Jody and I will be spending our night out at …
Ava’s preschool! ;)
It’s the first of several scheduled parent evenings as part of the Waldorf school.

Despite the fact that our night out will not be a romantic one (unless we sneak away to the playhouse in the backyard – *wink, wink*), I’m looking forward to it. These days I’ll take a night out however I can get it. he he. It’s funny how things can change so drastically once you have kids.

Best Shot Monday – 9/24/07

With today being the fall equinox, I had this great idea that I was going to take some cool pictures of the moon tonight. At 8 p.m. the moon was shining brightly and the sky was clear. The conditions couldn’t have been better.

By the time the kids were both asleep and I got my stuff (camera, lens, tripod) together to go outside and take pictures, it was 10 p.m., and, dun, dun, dun – the moon was nowhere to be seen. The clouds had rolled in. :(

Feeling hopeful, I got in the car and drove around for 40 minutes wishing for a break in the cloud cover. The break didn’t come.

Feeling defeated as I drove down Main Street, I decided I couldn’t go back home empty handed. I pulled out my camera and took a few shots with a 3 second shutter speed while I drove down the street.

So here’s my last-minute, definitely not the moon, but hey, at least it’s something “best shot.” ;)
