It's What's For Dinner: family night out

A wise friend of mine with kids a little older than Graham told me once that I wouldn't regret nights out with my family.  She said that while it costs a little more, it's an investment.  
Last night was one of those nights.  Somehow when you know there aren't dishes to do or other distractions, you end up savoring conversation more and slowing down.  And while going to a restaurant with a 2 year old often ends in spilled drinks and stained clothing (both of which happened last night), it sure is refreshing if you just go in expecting it.
If you live in the area, I highly recommend downtown Durham and especially the DPAC area.  We even caught part of the Durham Bulls baseball game from the Tobacco Road deck.

In case the pics were starting to look too ideal :)
Unfortunately he could not blow hard enough to move this pinwheel.  Disappointing.
