it seems like whenever the missus and i go out to eat, it's balaban's. not really, but we do like it and our good friend shawn the host has been gracious to us.
saturday, we met our longtime friends heather and ethan. they both have kids too, and like us, need some good ol' adult interaction. it was a great time. we stayed later than we thought, which means we didn't watch the clock, which means we enjoyed ourselves.
we would not have been able to go had uncle keith not come to the rescue. it seems our babysitter didn't show. or maybe she just forgot. maybe she had a better offer. anyway, a quick call and keith watched poops for us. good thing, too, because he wasn't in the greatest of moods.
someday, we'll repay keith by babysitting for his future kids.......someday.
