Jeff and I certainly tried to make the most of my weekend off. We drove up to Greenville in the early afternoon to go and sit at Falls Park and enjoy the beautiful sunny weather and try to finish reading Prince Caspian before seeing the movie.
We saw approximately 15 brides there getting pictures taken, along with a funny dog who frantically swam back and forth in the river chasing a duck who would either fly away from him and then land out of his reach, or swim underwater and pop up a little ways away.
After taking some time to walk through the park, we walked up to a little place called The Lazy Goat, a very hip, cool tapas restaurant where you can get dishes garnished with things like "pistachio dust" and "gently muddled limes." Our dinner was, of course, delicious, and consisted of several small dishes that we shared. Here is what one of our dishes looked like:
After dinner it was on to watch some baseball. Baseball has had a special place in my heart ever since Jeff and I first started officially dating at a Cardinals game. (When he FINALLY decided to hold my hand in the bottom of the seventh inning.)
It was, though, one of the best times we've had in a while - being able to get away from work and our little town and enjoy each other's company. (Notice the very relaxed lady in this picture - one who just this morning finished her last internal medicine call of her intern year!)
Hopefully we'll have some more fun dates this summer. Which should be easier since I just got the schedule for July and I'm on call all of THREE times, including only 1 friday. Three cheers for many more weekends off next year!
Any other good date ideas in Greenville?
