a dinner date.

Monday, April 23, 2012

last week we went out for a little dinner date: william, lindsey, parker, steve and i.  jordan had been gone all week visiting cousins for spring break in minnesota (see how i threw that in there so ya'll know we didn't just force him to eat pb&j at home by himself?).  i put red lipstick on for probably the first time since parker was born--what can i say?!  i was feeling a little saucy!--and off we went for an early dinner on a beautiful night.  pulled beef nachos and margaritas (for the adults) were on the menu.  so delicious.  i mean, so delicious.  mexican food agrees with me.  

steve played the part of photographer-extraordinaire that night and got some pictures that i downright cherish.  there are some new favorites in this batch.

hope your weekend was a good one!

  1. Such beautiful pictures! You have one stinkin cute little man!!! And one very talented husband- in the photography department, LOL. I am a little jealous of your mexican food, not gonna lie. Germany lacks all things Mexican.

    Hope you have a great week!!!

  21. Steve took some great shots!! That one of Parker - gosh, he looks so grown up, and he looks JUST like Steve!

    A perfect weekend!

  22. Wow! Beautiful pictures. Parker looks just like your husband in that one close up, right? Did Steve already like taking pictures or has it grown on him over time? I'm hoping this skill will grow on my husband, a lot :)

  27. So cute!! I have a 8 month old and still cannot commit to any kid of "diaper bag" but I love the bag you are carrying and it looks like it could be a good option - can you share where it is from?? Thanks : )

  28. @jax0582, it's actually american eagle from tjmaxx--i too could not find a diaper bag i liked!! this has worked!

  30. The grease in all mexican food doesn't agree with me. :-( I wish it did! Cuz it tastes soooo good! lol. I just can't believe how much little Parker looks like his daddy at this point. So cute!

    ReplyDelete
  31. These pictures, oh my God, Bridget.

    I have two favorites...you, William, and Parker loving on each other...and Parker's face!

    Steve's head is probably already too big, but tell him I said these are great! ;)

  32. How did you get your husband to play photographer? I wish mine would assume that role!

    ReplyDelete
  33. And I can completely understand why!!!! That #1 pic is so perfect! It should probably be on his birthday invitation. Just sayin....
