It was great! We ended up having a sitter for Charlie and we surprised Madi with a night out alone with Mommy & Daddy. She's been itching for this and we knew it. What better occasion to make it happen.
When we broke the news to her, the reaction was not only priceless, but it was so profound that we knew instantly we made the right decision. She was over the moon.
We first went to P.F. Chang's for dinner. She feasted on dumplings and edamame and was game to try a few other appetizers, as well. After dinner, we made our way south to meet our neighbors, Carol and Perry, along with Uncle Brian and Cathy for BOWLING! Madi enjoyed her evening out and especially loved that we were out bowling until 9:30 (while Charlie was home in bed). We arranged for the bumpers to be up on our bowling lane, and almost all of us improved our game (at least the women, anyway).
She's such a big girl and so easy and pleasant to be around. Like Aunt Carol said, "She's really not like a kid!"
We've promised her more nights like these...
