dinner on a dock

Andrew left for another underway last week (sad face) and the day before we had to say our goodbyes, he came home and told me that he had some good news. "I'm taking you out to dinner," he said.

That man knows my love languages.

We changed into our date clothes, packed up some food and entertainment for the boy, and headed into Stonington to a restaurant on the water that we've wanted to try for a while.

The verdict? We'll be back.

The meals were delicious. We shared a bowl of summer corn and crab chowder that still, after five days, makes me smile to think about.

The view was lovely and the time together was sweet, especially with this little guy keeping us company.

He's typically very well-behaved when we go out, which is so nice. He was busy watching everyone and everything around him, so we were able to actually have a conversation. I'm sure the day will come when he'll be harder to handle in these situations, so we're thankful for what we have now.

And then there's this guy.

We had such a nice time together this summer, which made it extra hard to see him go. But the evening that he treated us to was the perfect way to for our little family to spend some time together before he left. Every day I'm thankful for him.

Every day.
