Ensalada de Nopales

I hope you all are having a great start to your summer! The kiddo is out of school and while I thought I would catch a little break...nope, not one bit. Summer camp is in full effect, summer soccer training has started and I now have an eager child that by 7pm wants to know what we're doing for summer vacation. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. [sigh] Is is August yet?

I've never been camping in the summer. We've always gone camping in the Fall or Winter months. Fear no more, a couple of weekends ago, I experienced summer camping to the fullest. While I wasn't a complete fan of all the bugs and heat that accompanied it, I loved being able to gaze up at the night sky from our tent. No rain fly completely changes everything. The universe is amazing. Tranquil indeed.

The Hubs and I don't get a lot of  "alone" time. Mostly because it's hard for us to find a sitter for M. We try though. We both believe it's extremely important for adult time in a relationship, date nights are the best!

It had been a couple of months since our last date night. We were long over due for a night out on the town. My parents were able to watch M for the night...so dinner and dancing with the hubs were in our near future.
