We went to the city early in order to get a parking space ($18) and have time to slowly walk, since Hubby is still recovering from surgery. The class was across the street from the old US mint. There was an exhibition for history groups and museums, so we decided to stop in for a few minutes.

After the museum and a relaxing time of sitting in park people watching, we went to our class. We made chocolate, but also learned how to make almond milk and tasted a strawberry shake made with it. It was so tasty and also very easy to make.
Finally, after the class we went to a Vietnamese sandwich shop and had dinner together. One guy in a very colorful group suggested his favorite sandwich and another person in line suggested another. So we ordered one of each and they were both excellent choices!
Even though we spent just a few hours on our date, it was a good time to reconnect after all the drama of the past few months. I'm so happy that Hubby thought to do it. One of the things that was worrying me lately was reading statistics of marriage difficulties for parents of kids with special needs. Our marriage is really good, and we've had the little ones with us for nine years, but the new diagnosis of Ms. D's MR scared me a bit. But even though Hubby and I do have a good marriage, I realize we need to do things to make sure it stays that way. And spending time together, without the kids, doing something interesting and fun, is one of the ways we can keep enjoying each other instead of drifting apart. Thanks, Hubby!
