Back in September, Kate and I had a Girls' Day Out, so today was Michael's turn.
Michael was pretty excited to have an afternoon with just me and him. It was pretty simple having just a 5-year-old instead of 3 little ones. No sippy cups, no buckling kids into car seats, no diapers- a nice change for me!
We had plans to do all sorts of fun things, but he mostly wanted to play at Chick-Fil-A. So we ate lunch together, he played for a little bit, then Michael decided his treat was going to be (in his own words, since he ordered himself), "a chocolate milk shake with a cherry on top, please." Yum!
Then we headed to Wal-mart for him to pick out a present for a friend's birthday party coming up. He had a hard time choosing.
We don't often venture down the toy aisles, so Michael was pretty fascinated by the vast selection.
It was really nice to get some one-on-one time with my oldest son. We had some good talks about school next year and about firetrucks and all sorts of fun things. Precious times and good memories!
