Dinner with the Fire Fighters + Other Weekend Happenings

Well, Camden's dream came true Friday night when we had dinner with REAL firefighters! My grandmother had won a 'dinner for 4 with the Westerville firefighters' at a local charity event and only bod on it because she knew Camden would get a real kick out of meeting them! They greeted us at the fire station and gave us a full tour of the place and showed us a lot of their cool fire fighting gadgets and equipment. They even let Camden sit inside the fire truck! He was in heaven!

During the tour, there was an alarm that went off and we got to actually see the fire fighters jump inot one of the trucks and start the sirens. Camden was so excited and the fire fighters that was with us held him up to watch the truck drive out of the station. 

After our tour, they invited us to join their spaghetti dinner with the crew. I think Camden was too excited to eat, but he chugged about 2 full glasses of the chocolate milk they offered him. I was able to get him to sit still at least for one picture with the fire fighters!

Camden was on cloud nine the rest of the night and it took some extra coaxing to get him to go to bed that night, but I'd say it was worth it to see how happy he was!

Saturday night Bill and I went on a date night! I feel like it has been a while since we have been on an actual date on a weekend night, so we were due! We decided to go to Gallo's Tap Room in Powell since our realtor that helped us find our house here in Dublin is part owner with her husband. We've been meaning to go for a while and Saturday was the perfect night because the buckeyes were playing a night away game. We were able to snag some great seats at the bar to watch the game! The food there was so good! We also went to Prohibition for the last quarter and enjoyed the loaded fries and cocktails (totally worth the calorie overload!). But, now I'm feeling like I need to majorly crack down on my diet and exercise this week to make up for it!

What I wore: this sweater (so lightweight and soft, perfect for fall) | distressed black skinny jeans (currently 40% off!) | booties (currently on sale for less than $35!) | monogram necklace

Sunday we just relaxed in the morning with the boys (because parenting after a date night is rough...). Then, in the afternoon, our neighborhood hosted their Fall Festival in the park area across from our house. We took the boys and even though they were a little to young to enjoy a lot of the games and things going on, we still had a fun time chasing them around and chatting with our neighbors. We had beautiful weather yesterday too, so it was nice to get outside and enjoy it while it lasts!

How was your weekend?
