First of the Month Dinner: May.

Hooray! First of the month dinners are back! Actually, they never left- they just never made their way to the blog. Whoops. This month's dinner actually look place on May 2nd- that's because my husband is a rockstar and booked me a massage on the evening of the 1st. It was the best surprise! Thanks, Benjamin!

This month's dinner was actually a pitiful excuse for a dinner- hamburgers and strawberries. To be quite honest, I do make a mean hamburger. My mix of salt, pepper, and garlic powder makes the burgers taste amazing, no lie. 

What was special about tonight's dinner was what we discussed- the fun things we would do as a family during the month of May. Ben wants to try taking Dylan to a movie in the theater- probably a matinee at the dollar theater. If things go badly then we're only out $3, right? I want to take Dylan to Thanksgiving Point's Farm Country. 

Sounds pretty lame that two little family activities are considered  extra special, but Ben and I are usually too wiped out from the workweek to really want to do extra things during the weekend. It's just easier to relax at home, but we also realize that it's special and wonderful to do things as a family outside of our house. 

Anyway, here are a few pictures from our lovely dinner:

We like each other.

Delicious strawberries in a happy little bowl.

Aaaaand Dylan decided to pretend to be a puppy and drank out of the cat's water bowl. Ewwww.

Eww Indeed. Sometimes I think Kimball eats more cat food than people food though, so I'm not judgin'. You'll have to let us know how the movie goes! We've never taken any of our kids either... I like you. M.

I have 1/2 off at the Farm (although it's only $5 & Dylan isn't charged) BUT if you want a friend & a discount, hit me up!! And I think hamburgers are a special meal!!

Try adding dry ranch seasoning to your burgers. It will make them amazing!
