Plan A was Snoqualmie Falls, but we couldn't leave our kids for that long.
Plan B was a bonfire on the beach in Mukilteo. Kudos to Hubby for this brilliant idea. I was excited when he texted it to me earlier that morning.
"LOVE it!" I texted him back.
After a long spell of rain, it had actually been dry all day Friday. It's about time, I thought to myself as visions of Hubby and I cuddling by a warm fire filled my imagination.
I had my clothes picked out and was just setting up to make some hot cocoa for the trip when I heard that familiar sound.
Cautiously walking into our kitchen, hoping I was wrong, I looked up at the skylight.
"Is it raining?"
"Yes.....why?" My twelve-year-old looked back at me, confused.
"Crap. Daddy and I were going to go to Mukilteo and build a fire by the water for date night."
"Oh...bummer." Clearly she was not as concerned as I was.
"What are we going to do?" I asked Hubby when we sat down to eat dinner.
"I don't know. Do you have any ideas?"
"How about a bookstore?" I suggested.
He got that pained look on his face like he gets when he's just had a dental procedure.
