Friday night family dates.

Now that Matt has been back at work for a month, we are in more of a routine, and it makes me happy. I love the free for all chaos of summer, but I also like weekly rhythms and predictability.

One of the new traditions we are trying out for the fall is Friday night family dates. Everett knows that Matt and I go on dates, and that it is a special time, so he is pretty excited about family dates. I'm already trying to figure out how we can keep him excited about this concept even when he is a teenager (but there's no hope for that, right?).

It's only been a couple weeks, and it might be something we totally fail at, but it's been fun so far.

Our first Friday night family date consisted of a walk on the pier, eating pho, and then we happened upon the most magical bubble show at the golden hour at the beach. I have never seen such impressive bubbles, and the kids were so excited we happened upon them.

This series of photos made me laugh out loud:

Just in case you need to see more bubbles at sunset:
