I Love to See the Temple!

So last night our ward had a temple sealing assignment and we went!!  We actually found a nice babysitter and went on a date!!  The babysitter is in our ward, has kids, works with me in RS, and actually offered to babysit since we were struggling to find enough couples to fill the assignment.  Having our kids go to someone other than family or close friends is a first!!  And guess what?  We loved it and the kids loved it!  We took them pizza and homemade ice cream for dinner!  I think we’re moving up in the world when we’re finally coming to terms that we NEED to let our kids go to a babysitter so we can go out!

The temple was wonderful!  We fulfilled the assignment with another sweet couple from our ward who run the nurseries and do such a great job!  They definitely had their prayers answered while attending last night and it was a very special experience to be there with them.  There were so many other couples there to do sealings that they had to make us wait for a sealer to finish a wedding AND they had to call a sealer to come in to work, because of the tremendous amount of people!!  Yahoo for Friday night’s temple attendance!

And this morning I slept in until 10am with little Josh right next to me so he wouldn’t disturb my sleep too much when he got hungry.  Oh I feel energized and nice!   I haven’t slept in this late since maybe college?!?!

So I think we’re ready to find a date night swapping couple who have kids, live close, and aren’t afraid of our little boy angels =o)  I think we’d like to go do this temple thing a bit more often or just go out together alone to go shopping.  What are some memorable dates you’ve had with your spouse??  Any takers who want to swap Friday nights?
