Friday afternoon we loaded up the car, picked up the little guy from daycare and headed south. We were headed for John's mom's house in Fulton, MO. It is normally about a 5 hour drive from our house and this was Corbin's longest car trip so far. It took us a little longer than usual, but Corbin was a trooper and did awesome. We stopped a little over half way there at a random Wal-mart, got him out of the carseat (and into dry pants) for awhile, but other than that he snoozed or played quietly with his toys the whole way.
While in Fulton we got to spend time with John's mom, sister, brother-in-law, niece and nephew. We also went to O'Fallon, MO on Saturday to attend the 3rd birthday party of a cool little man who happens to belong to some great friends of ours. It was a great time and we got to catch up with some of our St. Louis friends.
Saturday night we had dinner at a restaurant called "Stephanina's" in Wentzville, MO with John's family. Since we weren't going to be able to squeeze a date in, we decided to pay for our dinner from our date night fund. It's still John's turn to plan the next one, and I look forward to seeing what he's come up with.
Date night fund:
previous balance $ 81.00
weekly contribution 50.00
Saturday dinner - 31.00
GC purchases - 16.00 (groupon, etc. deals for future dates)
