We told the kids they would each get a date with one of us. Chad would take out the girls, and I would take out the boys. Ella was first up. Chad planned a fun surprise date for them, which he revealed to her little by little as their date progressed. They started with dinner at Chick-Fil-A, then headed to the State Capitol. Ella was excited about this! She said she loves going to the capitol. Chad had scheduled a tour, and they got to see a lot. Overlooking the rotunda:
That is a girl who feels special!
The next step in their date night was Gilgal Garden. We'd told the kids about this place. Ella was the first to see it. They spent just a little time here, checking out the statues and looking around.
And the date was topped off with some Arctic Circle ice cream, so we can safely say this date night was a complete success! Ella got to spend some awesome quality time with her dad, and she was the queen for the evening. We love you, Ella!
