Yes, Ben and I going on a date deserves a post - since it is sort of a rare occasion. But I have a friend (my visiting teacher) and she has told me many times to go out with Ben and have her babysit. So we finally did!
We went cross-country skiing at night. About half-way in to our driving, I asked Ben, "You forgot the headlamp, huh?" He did. I was a little worried, but it actually turned out just dandy. The moon, though wasn't full, gave plenty of light on the snow and so we were totally fine. I was only mildly scared of the mountain lions coming out to eat me - especially when Ben would speed ahead and leave me in his snow-dust.
But it was really a great night - a great date!
