Lillian and Camilla August 2018 Date Day

August 10 2018:

Lillian and Camilla August 2018 Date Day ….

First stop – Fries for Lillian and a colorful fish shaped shortbread cookie for dessert. Coconut vegetable soup for me and a vegan hemp oat cookie for me. So yum!!!

Then shopping for some clothing items for Lillian. Now, a pit stop at home for a snack before closing out the date!!

Next half of date: A drive through our old neighborhood, with a few stops for photos.

Last piece of our date: A just-after-sunset walk. I adore the picture Lillian took of me. I had my eyes closed listening to the beautiful music the leaves sing as the wind blows through them. One of my most loved and treasured sounds.

Lillian and Camilla July 2018 Date Day

First stop: Fries for Lillian and a beautiful purple flower shortbread cookie for Lillian and a vegan oatmeal and date cookie for me. That was one darn good cookie!!

Second stop: Lillian absolutely LOVES decorative throw pillows. So we spent about 30 minutes ooh’ing and aah’ing over the shiny, sparkly, and oh so soft pillows.

Third stop: A special feature of one of Lillian’s most favorite movies: “Barbie and the Diamond Castle” in the lodge theater. We’ve been watching this ever since Lillian was about 5 years old so I’m sure we’ve seen it at least 109 times!

We would have loved to have a walk at one of our favorite places; yet, just too hot!! Perhaps later tonight! xoxo

Ended the date with a sunset walk. Just beautiful!

Icecycle Creamery for lunch. The veggie sandwich I had was soooo yum!!! Followed by 1/2 scoop Mexican Hot Chocolate and 1/2 scoop of Classic Vanilla. Perfect! Too hot for an outdoor part to our date. Maybe early evening we’ll go for a walk. Will see.

Thomas and Camilla June 2018 Date Day.

First stop. Ice cream! A neighbor thanked us for watering their plants with a Cold Stone Creamery gift card. Thomas enjoyed his treat!

Next stop. Walking and talking along Virginia Lake. We saw this amazing golden tan colored duck and a multicolored duck. Plus, a nearly all black duck with a white breast (in next set of photos).

Conversations with Thomas are incredibly magical, wonderful, emotional, Real, and deep. Today’s will remain between the two of us. Yet, may the sentiment and energies travel far and wide. xoxo .

Thomas and Camilla April 2018 Date Day

April 28 2018:

Thomas and Camilla April 2018 Date Day ….

Annual fundraiser for the school Thomas attended for 1st-4th grade …. Kids on Big Rigs 2018.

This would be pure torture for me if I didn’t know it creates much joy and happiness for Thomas. It’s incredibly loud with sirens and horns blowing non-stop. Thomas doesn’t care for that part at all, he loves to ask questions and look at the vehicles and equipment. And, he did ask many, many great questions.

Yet, I did have a complete ball dancing to the DJ music while we waited in line for the wee little train ride. If there’s good music, I can have fun as long as I can dance. Plus, with that big beautiful blue sky overhead, I was able to look up, focus on my breath and create a buffer between all the noise.
