Even better is when the oldest gets old enough to babysit for a bit and DH and I can get out by ourselves!!!
We've been doing that a little bit recently now that Bailey is just about 11 for short amounts of time and it's so lovely! We can drive to town and have an ice cream or something and be back in an hour.
Of course, that will all go away once the baby comes. But yes, in general, once the kids are older than 3, going out is SO much easier!

It's a bit tough with the baby. Toting around the diaper bag is a giant pain and going out around nap times. He's a very easy baby though. He's great in restaurants and stores. Once he starts getting tired its down hill quick. Ethan is a breeze to take out.
It definitely gets easier and easier each year. I feel like there are gradually more options too - we can go to a zoo, nature center, bookstore, amusement area, whatever and she's interested and enjoys herself.
