Date Night!

Thom and I decided that it was high time for a date night, we've been on two since Isla was born, one was an impromptu one when my mom was visiting, one was for our anniversary and Ben and Mary watched Isla.

We wanted to see the last Harry Potter before it left theaters, and we discovered that this was the last week it for it! Close call.

Beth and Pat watched Isla for us.

On our way to the theatre we tried to remember what was the last movie we saw in the theatre together...
we think it was Despicable Me, but we're not sure.
It seems funny that we saw a kids movie as our last movie date night.

And let me tell you, Harry Potter did not disappoint-well, besides the fact that it was the last one :( 
We always rate where it fell in the Harry Potter favourites.

I still think that part 1 of the Deathly Hallows is my fave, I love all the travelling around, it was also my favourite part in the books.
Thom always likes all the goings on at the school, and he thinks maybe this is his favourite.

He even picked up the first HP book to read once we got home.
I re-read the series last summer while waiting for miss Isla.

Going to a movie was a nice date, partly because it was nice to just have the 2 of us for such a long period of time, and also it was a good distraction so that we really didn't think about Isla.

When we got back, Beth reported that Isla was hilarious, and that she and Pat had a great time with her :)

It was a great night and ended with a nice chat with Beth.

That Isla is a trooper, since Saturday night she has been out 4 nights and put to bed late... however she has been sleeping until 7, so we kind of like the to bed late business.

also, did you know that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 was the first movie that Isla saw in the theatre?
she was 3 weeks old and Beth and I went and she pretty much slept through the whole movie
-Isla did, not Beth ;)
