Google Maps Car

Up until the other day I just assumed google maps street view was just magic.  Well I'm sorry to disapoint people, there is no magic but there is a really cute car.  I was pulling out of my driveway when this little car zoomed behind me.  I turned to see who this rude person was.  I was pleasently supprised to see this cute little car with a big red ball on a poll on its roof.  When I relized it was a Google Maps car I of course had to chase him down for a picture.  Let me tell you this driver must have driven race cars in his last profession.  He was speeding all over my neighborhood, or maybe he was trying to get away from the crazy lady chasing him taking pictures.  Have you ever seen a Google Maps car?

Date nights not what it used to be...

My husband calls during his first break at work every morning to check in with his girls.  These calls give us a chance to talk about what is going on in our days currently and what needs to be done later in the day when he gets off work.  Today's call went a little like this:

Me:  How is your day going?
Him:  Fine.  I wish I was home.
Me:  I wish you were home too!
Him:  What are you girls up to today?
Me:  Ladybug is still asleep, Glowworm is eating, and I am doing the dishes.
Him:  So we have a date tonight?
Me (with obvious excitement in my voice): WHAT???  Really?
Him:  Oh I'm sorry babe I just meant we are going grocery shopping tonight, right?
Me (bummed):  Yeah. 

Our life is so different now then it was 5 years ago.  We were spontaneous and everyday was a date night.  Movies, dinner at a restaurant, or even just a quite night at home.  Now grocery shopping as a family is a date?  The funny thing is as much as I still love going on dates (alone) with my husband, I love "dates" as a family shopping too.
