Spontaneity

Something amazing happened this weekend.

We went on a real, honest-to-goodness, spontaneous outing.  Not just a quick run out for coffee to one of our usual haunts but randomly dropping our plans for staying in on Saturday and going out instead.  Considering we have a 4 month old, this was kind of a milestone moment for me.


On Saturday morning I happened to notice a posting on Facebook that one of our favorite local brewery, Holy City, was tasting what they were calling "Pollenator II".  It was a Belgian Style Blonde made with honey from another local company.  How do you say "no" to that?  So my husband and I just up and decided to go.  We showered, grabbed lunch, fed the kid, and left.



Our little one has been quite the sport since day one enduring a couple huge road trips and his first flight within his first 3 months of life on the outside, but it has taken us a little while to get in synch with the all the extra considerations that go into leaving the house with a baby.  It seems we are always about to leave the house then remember we should probably feed/change the baby, or both.  Then that tacks on an extra 20 - 45 minutes on our leave time.  Sometimes that is enough to just abort an outing all together.

But not Saturday.

Success.
