the dilly bird, ducks, and a date

As Tim called me yesterday on the way home from work, he said, "I have something planned for date night, but it's really simple.  Sorry!"

And I just laughed, because simple or not, the things Tim plans are always fun.

Our first stop was Dilly's Deli.  We had an awesome coupon, and well, we just love that place.  And we have good memories there, since that is what we ate when we got engaged.

I always - and I do mean always - get the Dilly Bird.  It has sprouts, avocado, and turkey on amazing white bread.  Which is funny, because when I was little I hated sprouts and avocados.  [Thank goodness tastes change and I can now appreciate green, slimy vegetables.]

Next we headed over to the lake by the Mesa Public Library so we could feed the ducks!  Tim came prepared with bread, and we had so much fun watching the ducks tackle each other to fight over the bread.

It was also fun watching Tim try to coax the geese into taking the bread from his hand.  Which never worked. [But he got close.]

Once all of our bread was gone, we just hugged and gazed out over the lights reflecting off the water for a few minutes.  It was all very romantic.

Thankfully, right next to the lake, there was also a playground.  Which included a swingset.  And a junglegym.  [We don't need children to have an excuse to go to the playground again.  Maturity-level wise, we fit right in.]

And for your viewing pleasure, a video of me saying "babe" a disproportionate amount of times:

And then we Redboxed the new Muppet movie [see what I mean about the maturity-level thing?] and cuddled on the couch whilst gorging ourselves with popcorn.

It was a pretty amazing date for being so "simple."  But mostly I just love being with him.
