Our Birthday Date


On Amelia’s first birthday, I started a tradition that I hope to continue forever. Each year, I take the girls out for a date with Daddy for their birthday. Just the two of us for some good one on one time. It’s already come to be something that I treasure. This year Amelia was old enough for it to really be a bonding experience. For dinner, she wanted to go someplace fun, someplace in downtown Nashville and someplace where she could get steak. The Hard Rock Cafe fit the bill, but when we arrived it was closed for renovations. 30 minutes of fighting rush hour traffic later, we wound up at the Cheesecake factory…which had a 40 minute wait. So we mozied over to Carrabba’s next door and bellied up to the pasta bar for a cozy dinner for two. We had a blast together just chatting and goofing around over pizza, pasta, and of course dessert. Afterward we went over to the movie theater to watch Toy Story in 3D. Amelia refused to put on her 3D glasses, but she made it through both Toy Story 1 and Toy Story 2 with a smile on her face the whole time. I’m already looking forward to next year.
