July Date Night (Weekend)

For July, we did a little weekend get away.  We have a favorite singer that we stalk, I mean follow: Eric Church.  This was our 8th time seeing him and only our 1st time this year.  Our love for him is mutual, I have a huge girl crush, but I do believe Craig has a man crush on him as well.  Actually, he has a music crush, he loves the tunes, as do I, but he ain't bad to look at either.  We headed out Friday night to Lake Anita for a little tent camping. We grilled out steaks and went into Anita for a cocktail and watched the Olympic opening ceremony.  We had beautiful weather and a couple of brews so sleeping was easy.  We woke up and had the huge camping style eggs and bacon breakfast, the highlight was that Craig was able to use his new perkolator (not sure how to spell that one).  It only took about an hour to get that thing going!!!!  We head to River Rukus about 2 and had the opportunity to listen to 3 great opening acts before our boy came on.  He never disappoints!  The weekend was great and we will look forward to seeing him again, if not this year, next for sure.

Penelope and Morty July Date

Yay 2nd anniversary!!  I flew to Michigan to see Morty this week and we got multiple dates in!  First date was the Alice Cooper and Iron Maiden concert.  I've never seen Iron Maiden before but they were pretty good.  2nd date was a romantical dinner and a movie.  We saw Ted, it was hilarious.  3rd date was a night in with a bottle of wine and CNN.  Not too shabby!

Krystal and Justin - June Date!

You know your date rocked when you are tired and sore afterwards!  :)  Our June date was a mini vacation to the wonderful state of Minnesota to experience the Minneapolis Marathon and 1/2 Marathon.  We drove to Minneapolis on Saturday before the race and picked up our race packets, figured out a hotel we could stay at (Aloft - awesome!), and then went to the Mall of America for some shopping.  We ended the evening with some yummy pasta dinner at the Old Spaghetti Factory restaurant in downtown Minneapolis.

We woke up bright and shiny the next morning and I walked down to the starting line with Justin so he could start the full marathon.  The 1/2 marathon started an hour later, so I sat and "people watched" until the start of my race.  The race itself was a little boring.  It was just mainly an out and back hairpin course along a park.  I had not trained enough, so I walked a bit starting with mile 10.  I was happy to be done running and go get my free beer at the end!

We stopped at another restaurant on our way home and had lunch, so we asked our server to snap a quick photo of us with our bling!!

Josh and Robyn June Date

Josh and I took a family vacation to Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.  We were lucky to have my mother in law come along to help with our three daughters.  We didn't exactly get a date night, instead, we were able to sneak away for 2 hours to sit on the beach.  That was all we did.....sit.....and drank a few beers.  The waves were pretty rough that afternoon so it was an opportunity for us to just relax and unwind on the beach.  Uneventful and wonderful all at the same time!

Penelope and Morty June Date

Morty came home for a visit over Father's Day weekend.  After putting the little tot to sleep we were able to watch a movie in it's entirety.  We saw the Ides of March (we are a little behind on our movies).  It was nice spending time with my bunny since I never get to see him!!  We close on our house in August so we will be together again soon.  Better date nights to come!!

Steph & Craig - June Date

We were lucky enough to steal away for a long weekend in the heart of Scottsdale.  We chose the Phonecian which is very old school resort.  We had the best of times.  We did NOTHING, when I say that, what I mean is that we sat by the pool for 3 days and ate nachos and drank margaritas.  We thought it very cool that you can order that goods and just sign your name by a little x and they bring it on to you.  Imagine our surprise when the bill came about later.
