Thomas and Camilla August 2019 Date Day

First stop was India Kabob buffet for lunch. Completely forgot pictures of the lovely food! Yum!!!

Second was a stop to buy a can of cleaning duster for Thomas so he could clean his laptop. He’s been asking for months!

Next, we popped into Barnes & Noble to pick up Lillian’s poster from the book signing event last June.

And last, the pet store to window shop. These sweet geckos were quite entertaining. The little guy on the roof started out on the branch. We watched him stretch as far as possible, grasp the roof, fall back to the branch, hanging on by the tail, and then do it all over again. It was beautiful and fun to watch. Love our date days!!

First stop: Fries and pretty in purple sugar cookie for Lillian. Tahini Broccolini with a Neapolitan cupcake for me. Yum!!

Second stop: Browsing at one of her favorite stores. You should have heard what Bones said to me!!! 😱💀He was just joking, though, and we moved past it.

Last stop: Bartley Ranch – We had planned on Audrey Harris Park but it was closed due to a performance. So, we found this sweet lil spot, read for a bit, and ended with photos and playing with shadows and trees.

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

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.
