Family Night Out

Last night, Joe and I had plans to drop Lucy off with a friend and have date night.

However, that fell through. So, instead of staying in, we decided to just take Lucy with us! We headed to Outback Steakhouse for dinner and then took Lucy for a surprise. What was her surprise, you ask?


We went to a nearby mall for some play time in the soft play area. We had forgotten the mall has a carousel, and Lucy was THRILLED when she saw it. She rode one for the first time last weekend at the zoo (more on that later), and she is OBSESSED now! We might have let her ride it twice. 🙂



Unfortunately, it was hard to get a shot while she was riding it, so this was the best I could do.


After the carousel, we hit up the soft play area, and then Lucy wanted to ride one of the mechanical cars before we left. Of course, she picked the one with Garfield.




It’s really hard to get a non-blurry shot when your child won’t stop moving! We had a great night, and now we’re looking forward to another family day with a cookout, cookie baking and a trip to the park!

    Great pictures of Lucy! Drake hates the merry go round – he wanted to try it a couple times and then wanted off each time, too!
