Mom and Dad came over yesterday and during the afternoon, took Aidan to the beach to play in the sand. That was Golf's and my opportunity to get out for a few hours and enjoy ourselves. We didn't want to see any movies -- nothing is out now that looks appealing. Not til May anyway, that's when Davinci Code comes out! I couldn't think of anything, so I just came up with going to the bookstore to hang out, read at our leisure, and get some coffee. It was nice and inexpensive date.
However, upon returning to our car we saw we got a parking ticket!!! We were so careful to make sure we got back in time before the meter ran out. The guy giving the ticket must have been sitting by our car waiting for the last few minutes to tick by because we saw his little truck down the street after we got in. We got there literally less than a minute after he left. And our cheap date got an added $35. Sometimes I think when I really try to keep costs down, something comes along to screw it all up.
