Date Night St. Louis: the Fountain

Life, just like the blog, has been pretty baby-centric for a while now, but for the rest of this post I'm not going to use the B-word (baby. not bitch. in case there was any confusion... We don't call our baby a bitch. Usually.  <<< Did my sarcasm come through there? good.).

Last weekend I decided to surprise Tyler with a date night! We used to plan dates for each other pretty frequently, but it's been a while, and we were definitely due. I got really excited to spend some time just the two of us.

One of the spots we haven't visited since moving back is the St. Louis Science Center. Despite how much fun it is, I never even took Tyler on any of his visits when we were dating. As I was driving somewhere recently, I heard a commercial on the radio for the OMNImax theater showing a film about humpback whales. I decided we had to go! It's been a long time since Tyler has been under the ocean.

It was great seeing such giant creatures on such a big screen. We had so much fun!

After the show we did a brief exploration of the science center, but we're going to have to go back this winter so we can spend some more time playing around. We had to take a few selfies with the dinosaurs though!

Then, for dinner I wanted to go somewhere we've never been, so we headed over to try the Fountain on Locust. It was awesome! Situated in an old Stutz car showroom, the art deco murals and lighting made for a fun environment. 

The food was yummy, and I had to try their dill pickle soup. Yup, you read that right! I'm sure I'll be craving it the next time I'm pregnant.

But the real draw was their ice cream creations. I got a milkshake and their World's Smallest Ice Cream Cone. Tyler opted for a brownie in a cup, covered in ice cream and whipped cream.

We will be back.

It was so nice to have an evening away, but it was also nice to come home to a cute face.
