Throwback Post – Thomas and Camilla May 2014 Date Day

**THROWBACK POST**

May 10 2014

Mini date with Thomas today. Looked at a place for rent, went to Stone Age and had an amazing time looking at all the rocks and crystals and got us a few goodies too, then looking at guinea pigs, birds and fish!! Cold and rainy so we decided against our usual outdoor date style!! Now, if we could just combine the library/used book store and the Stone Age store into the Team TLC house … WOW!! I don’t know if we’d ever want to leave!! xoxo

It’s hard to get this one to stand still!! xoxo

We had a ball laughing with this goldfish. He was amazing!!!

Good Golly!! This place is fabulous … Stone Age .. Full of all kinds of amazing goodies! Got a chunk of opal, white quartz, and fuschsite, a gorgeous amethyst pendulum, a green aventurine pendent and a special little goody for Thomas and Lillian for Mother’s Day. YES! I am going to give each of them a gift tomorrow! I do it different around here! xoxo

Lillian and Camilla May 2019 Date Day

First stop was to pick up the printed graduation announcements.

Second stop – Fries and a bright and beautiful shortbread cookie for Lillian. Crispy cauliflower with a siracha aioli sauce and a vegan oatmeal coconut raisin cookie for me. The cauliflower was amazing. So incredibly good and perfect amount of spiciness in the sauce. 🧡🧡🧡

Last stop – Craft store for sparkly things to embellish the graduation announcements. Lillian still has Christmas money so she picked out a shiny pencil case she’s had her eye on to use for traveling with her colored pencils.

Thomas and Camilla May 2019 Date Day …

First stop: Burger Me for a veggie burger and garlic fries for me, cowboy burger and onion rings for Thomas.

Second stop: Avengers Endgame … It’s been 2 or 3 years since I’ve been to a theater. Tuesday afternoon seems like a great time to go! Not full. And quiet!

I’ve not seen ANY of these Avenger movies and was able to follow it pretty good. Thomas filled me in briefly before the show and filled in the rest afterwards.

Love date days with Thomas!! 😍😍😍

He loved the movie. One of his favorite scenes was the end with the classic good guy vs bad guy scene. He loved the music, especially “The Portal” which is the music for this scene. He had a favorite character and lines also.

I am so happy I took him to see this. It is such a joy to watch one’s child developing their own interests and to learn about these interests and their likes and dislikes. He’s definitely got an ear for soundtracks in movies and online games. He knows things about them, I never even knew about this topic. Like the psychology behind the notes and such.

He also has an eye for movies … Things I can’t even begin to describe as I don’t even know the wording. I can’t wait to see where he goes with his strengths and knowledge.

Thomas and Camilla April 2019 Date Day – First stop – Kids on Big Rigs 2019

Thomas had a blast shooting water from the bag the Forest Service guys use (forgot to ask what it’s called)!! I may have done it too!! 💦 💦 💦

That handcar is a workout!! Couldn’t get a picture of us on there as my hands were busy! 😜 It was uphill on the way back! Whew! His favorite was the emergency radio vehicle!

Second stop – An appetizer and soup at Great Full Gardens South Meadows Reno.

Organic blue corn chips with amazing salsa and guacamole! Chayote chowder for me and totally tomato for Thomas. And look at the gorgeous salt n pepper shakers! My dream house! Ahhhhh …

Lillian and Camilla April 2019 Date Day! First, a stop to look for a new skirt or dress for Lillian. Found one! Yay!!

Next was a stop for fries ….. they were out of fries so she tried the sweet potato tots. Oh my goodness! Those were good!!

Pink and yellow frosted sugar cookie for her and we split the other two goodies. A vegan Neapolitan cupcake (good grief, that was so good) and a vegan snicker doodle cookie dough bite. Next stop was an incredibly windy walk.

Last stop – An incredibly windy walk!

Lillian and Camilla March 2019 Date Day

March 26 2019:

Lillian and Camilla March 2019 Date Day …. Lets be true and authentic here. I don’t post behind the scenes a whole lot. Yet, feel it’s important as a society not to hide the unloveliness of life.

It’s been more than a week since I’ve had uninterrupted good nights sleep. Last night Lillian woke me up about 4 times.

This morning after waking up, Lillian threw up. Just a random throwing up episode. She used to have this happen quite often. But, it’s been years since the last occurrence.

She did not want to call off her date. Even though it was going to be a short date as I had a 1:00 doctors appointment for Thomas.

So … at 3:00 we left the house for her traditional fries. Now, for the date details. 😃🎉

Fries for Lillian (and me!) Vegan brownie for me and iced sugar cookie for her. She wanted to go for a walk; but was too tired. So, we went for a nice drive through our old neighborhoods. Pulled over and took this amazing photo!! 💚💙

She’s quite the stubborn gal. She didn’t want to wait until nevt week when we had more time and when she felt better (and me too) as that would not be a March date in March. It would be a March date in April. Ugh!

Thomas and Camilla March 2019 Date Day

March 8 2019:

Thomas and Camilla March 2019 Date Day …

First stop: Great Full Gardens for a late lunch. Had birthday reward money to spend!! Yay!!

Delicious “Love” water to begin. Followed by mushroom tea for both of us. A 1/2 farmers market sandwich and eggplant, garlic soup for me. Burger and coleslaw for Thomas. Bread pudding to finish for Thomas.

Next stop: Galena Creek Park for a stroll in the really deep snow. Brrrrr!!!!! 🧡🧡🧡 Amazing trees!!! Love them so!! 💚💚💚 Check out the footbridge! Walked across at handrail level! And the bench. We were higher than it!

Thomas and Camilla February 2019 Date Day

Thomas and Camilla February 2019 Date Day

Car picnic at South Valleys Sports Complex Park. Club sandwich for Thomas and 1/2 Veghead for me. Next up was the library. The place that houses one of our most favorite things!

After that was shopping for a new pair of ear buds for Thomas along with window shopping of computer monitors and keyboards. Thomas has plans and knows what he wants now that he’s had his current laptop for over a year.

Dessert! A caramel gelato bar for Thomas and Mexican wedding cookie for me.

An incredibly cold and slippery walk to end our date.Thomas lectured the ducks on the excessive use of pronouns. Those sweet babies thought we had food and all we offered were words! Beautiful and meaningful conversation all throughout the date. Perfect. In every way.
