Date Night

I love weekends. Clearly. This weekend is extra long for me because I took off Friday! We only had one doctor working in the office so it would have been horribly boring and the "boss" would have been constantly lurking around trying to find us busy work. So instead I ran errands and brought Zach lunch while he finished his paper. Friday night was GRANT-MCNEAL DATE NIGHT!!! I type it in caps because that's how you say it. . .all excited-like. 

Now, unfortunately for my spouse, I will forever pump up date night. I will imagine that we're going to be doing something amazing and new and inevitably something way too out of our budget. Which is really dumb and I completely acknowledge this and yes, I do know that I am being silly. When I found out what we would be doing there was that initial bit of disappointment (which I know is stupid so I try my best to ignore myself). We had a wonderful simple night of fun. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that--simple.

The McNeals and I left their house to go pick-up Mr. Grant who had just personally handed his paper into his professor's hand as he was collecting them from the mailbox. I told him instead of saying "mercy, mercy. . " while handing in his paper he should have told him he just prefers to have a more personal experience and shake the hand of the man who will be grading his papers. Ya know with a, "Here you go fine sir, I hope you enjoy grading this as much as I enjoyed writing it." If I was a professor that would certainly make me laugh. Moving on.

**Every picture on this blog came from the McNeal camera.
 I just edited their perty lil' colors.**

Zach and Kevin like to play.

We headed to New Hope, PA. It's a lovely ride along the Delaware River and then you turn and you are instantly in this cute little town. Well actually there's Lambertville--so cute complete with a wonderfully charming and tasty little coffee shop--then you cross the small rickety bridge --by car-- to get into New Hope. Find parking and then walk to your yummy dinner. That's typically the plan whenever we go there. 

haha. . .I love this one. 

So we walked a bit then headed to Havana. When Zach and I first went to this restaurant about a year and a half ago we shared two sandwiches (we like sharing); a cuban and a Thanksgiving sandwich. Oh man they were both soooo amazing. And so ever since then we go there in the hope of finding something equally as amazing. I don't think we have done that yet, but we do plan on going there after Thanksgiving to get another one of those amazing sandwiches. This time we started with amazingly huge onion rings and baked brie (yummmm). Then Zach and I semi shared a burger, fries, and BBQ pulled pork tacos. 

After dinner we slowly headed back to the bridge. Rae wanted to take some pictures of the water before it got too dark, which it did. We were too slow because we were too full. So full. 

We eventually headed back to Princeton, went to our separate homes, got into comfy clothes/pj's, headed back to the McNeals, and ended the night with wine and Mario Party. We had a lovely night. I love GRANT/MCNEAL DATE NIGHT!
