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 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.

September 7 2018:
Thomas and Camilla September 2018 Date Day – First stop: The Work! Fight! Give! -American Relief Posters of World War II exhibit at the Wilbur D. May Museum.
Thomas finds this time period very interesting and enjoys to get philosophical about wars and other major events in history. So, Thomas was pretty excited when I shared about this exhibit that Lillian had actually told me about just yesterday!!
Bonus!!! It was Open House today due to the Hot Air Balloon races so free admission. I was so happy and relieved to hear this that I nearly reached over the counter and hugged the gal who told me.
After looking through the exhibit we walked through the Wilbur May collection. Haven’t done that for years! My favorite is the collection from India!
Next was a walk through the Arboretum. Incredibly beautiful right now with tons of flowers and squirrels and rabbits and song birds!!
Last stop was dessert for Thomas of salted caramel and Oreo cookie frozen yogurt.
