After the ladies went home (or went to sit in traffic) we went out to see a Christmas light show. It was set up in a local park. You paid at the gate and then wound around the park for a good while in your car, enjoying all the light structures they had set up. I'd never heard of such a thing till two weeks ago. It was nice. I think the kids were impressed.
We ran back home and fed the kids. I put Emma down for the night and the adults headed back out. We went to the Cheesecake Factory. On a Friday night. It was around 9 p.m. that we were seated. We didn't get up from our booth till 11:30 p.m. I'm sure our waitress was loving us. We had a great meal and great conversation, so it was all good.
