On Wednesday, my husband and I had a date night for the first time in four months. With an infant and a toddler to find sitters for, getting away for a few hours isn't always easy. My husband planned the evening and it was a complete surprise to me; he took me out to dinner and then on a sunset sailboat river cruise into downtown Portland. It was a beautiful night on the Willamette River.

This was the sky while I was on my walk last night at Pacific Community Park. The park has a large fenced area with a half-mile walking loop around it for people to let their dogs run free, a brand new playground, a skate park, and a covered picnic area, as well as a large walking loop around a huge grassy area that isn't fenced. We take our dog here regularly since we don't have a yard for her to run in, and we all love it; my daughter gets to play on the playground, I get to walk at least a mile, the dog gets social interactions, attention from strangers, and all the space she could want to run in, and we all get some fresh air.
