    I am in need of a dinner out for some alone time with my husband we don't get near enough with a 5, 8 and 18 yr old in the house it is very rare. I also would like to to enjoy a meal that I didn't have to cook. Thanks OVM for all the great contests!

    We have entered the parenting stage where many of our evenings are spent taxiing children to various activities and coordinating overnights with rehearsals. It would be fantastic to have an evening to ourselves. Bonus: Polly's is one of our favourite spots to eat!

    I have an 8 week old baby at home and although I love every minute we rarely get a chance to eat without interruption let alone cook a nice meal!!

    I've never been to this restaurant before and would love to give it a try! Plus I have twin girls who are just entering their "terrible twos" and my husband and I could REALLY use a night out :)

    Would love a night out for dinner. My husband and I have an 8 month old and don't really get out "just the two of us". We were married Sept. 11, 2010 and honeymooned at a cottage in Calabogie and ate at this restaurant. We loved it and would love to go back!

    I am soooo in need of a dinner out. We have 3 children under the age of 7...and I honestly can't remember the last time we enjoyed a dinner out beside McDonald's with the kids along as well of course. We just had our anniversary on Sept. 30th and didn't even manage to have a dinner out to celebrate our 6 years of marriage. This would be a special treat =)

    My hubby and I are in desperate need of a night out for dinner. With 3 small children at home things can get pretty crazy and we NEVER take time for ourselves. I honestly can't remeber the last time we were out for dinner by ourselves, so even though it would only be a few hours away from our children, I know we would enjoy eachothers company with no interuptions!

    Son in university and daughter in high school, life is expensive! Like all parents we could use an evening out, but seldom feel we can spend the money on ourselves, so an evening out at Polly's would be great!

    My husband and I have two young boys, a 4 yr. old and a 15 mth. Life is hectic and has become all about the kids. I lost my job back in May, while still on Mat. leave (that's a whole other story!) and $$$ is tight. Dinner out isn't even in the budget! Would love a chance to put some effort into my appearance and have a quiet dinner out. Never been to Polly's and would love a chance to check it out:)

    as a mom of a toddler and newly relocated to Ottawa I`m in need of a nice dinner out to 1) recharge from chasing a toddler around all day and eating all her uneaten leftovers 2) get to know the little gems near Ottawa for a mini-escape

    A meal that I didn't have to cook or clean up after, plus a view of Calabogie Lake?? Sounds perfect - and oh yeah, my husband and I haven't been out together alone in months! I would love to win!!

    Looking forward to a night out with my hubs! He does the cooking in our house and I KNOW he would love a break and a chance to spend some time together. We don't eat at restaurants because we have young children, so it would be nice to sit across from him at a table and really talk and enjoy each others company without the loving distraction of our little ones...just for one night. :) Plus, it's free and free just doesn't happen enough for us. We could use the break.

    I really want to win this because me and my husband haven't been out on a date since our daughter came into the picture even a while before Abe was here we didn't go out so we are in need of a date alone baby free. I haven't been ready to leave my little girl with anyone just started a girl coming over a few times to learn her routine and for Emily to get to know her butI'm not sure if I'm ready but this would make me try thank you I hope to win
