Daddy Son/Mommy Son Dates

Last month we started a new tradition (that we copied from Travis and Megan). Each month Tristan and I take turns taking one kid out by themselves. Last month, Tristan took Brandon took a Chukars game and he enjoyed not having to deal with little brothers and ask as many questions as he wanted to.

This month, I told Creighton it was his turn and he said, "You mean the night that I get to go without Daddy, or Brandon, or Tyce, just me!" Needless to say he was excited.

He chose to go bowling and then get Artic Circle sundaes to eat at Falls Valley.

At the bowling alley, we took turns taking each others pictures. Every time he bowled he had to run back to the TV to see what he got.

This night was definetly worth the $8 that we spent. It's very nice to have your kids one and one every once in a while, so it feels more than quality time rather than herding kids from place to place.


  1. That is a great idea. I bet they love that.

  2. Hey Julie!Justin and I have talked about doing that for years,but never seem to make it happen. 5 kids means they'd only get to go twice a year, but I guess its better than not going at all!
    No, Brandon didn't want thirds, but he did want to bring his ice cream home! yes, those kids are from school. So glad he had fun!

  3. Sounds like it was a lot of fun. How exciting for the kids to know that they will get alone time with the parents. Great thinking Julie! Love the cute pictures.

  4. Such a fantastic idea! I am sure that your boys love the one on one!
