Parents Night Out
Dinner date with the Crills.

Parents' night out is common here. Teens babysitting too.
Whenever couples want a dinner date out alone, they get a teen they trust to babysit.

The church teens offered their service for free that Fri night. They have adult supervision too, from the youth group coordinators, the Dowdys. The kids would all be in the church building, playing games and having fun with the youth. So why not?

We enjoyed ourselves at the Mystery Dinner so much. This should be fun too! We set up a double date with the Crills, who also left their baby with the youth.

Matt suggested the Tepanyaki Grill, so we went there together. The chef used the Hibachi method of cooking, which is a skill passed down for generations, it seems.

They perform as they cook for us. 9 can sit at a table. And whatever we order, he cooks it there and then. Above shows the chef making an onion volcano. Stack of rings of onions with flames leaping out from the middle.


That's the Crills and us. I ordered Sukiyaki beef, and fried noodles came along with it. Dh had salmon.

You could have free grilled shrimp too, if you can catch them with your mouth when the chef flips it towards you! It was very fun! Dh caught one!
Left shows another guy at the same table trying to catch it.
The chef will fry it quickly with his long metal spatula and then deftly flip it up very quickly and tossing it in your direction. He went round the table doing that. haha.

When we left kids at the church building, they were fine, and they were also fine when we picked them up. This time, we left them for about 2.5 to 3 hours.

With this gradual increase, and them being perfectly happy, I think we can start to do this on a regular basis. Our next one would be a full day thing at the ski resort. That'd be with total strangers, so I am a little anxious about that. ds1 should be ok, but ds2 is the one I would be worried about. Hopefully it'll go well, then it means both ds2 and I can sign up for more lessons separately on our own! yay.


rainbows every day, do not worry for the morrow
