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.

Thomas and Camilla March 2018 date day …

Second stop – We came home after lunch, went to the lodge, and played a game of pool. Then, walked back home. Kept it short and simple this time.

First stop – Lunch!!

Vegetarian for me: Egg rolls and Szechuan eggplant cooked and served in a clay pot. Deeply yummy!!!

We split dessert of a giant slice of coconut cake. We kinda devoured the cake! Delicious and not too sweet .. I’m a huge fan of desserts that aren’t overly sweet. Thomas had the sushi bar.

Thomas and Camilla February 2018 Date Day

March 2 2018:

Thomas and Camilla February 2018 Date Day (a wee bit late). My phone got so cold that I lost all photos from our date except one!

The one of Thomas with his ice cream from Icecycle Creamery is the only photo that survived. That was our first stop.

Second stop was one of our favorite spots … Audrey Harris Park for Thomas to eat his ice cream with the amazing view. Then we walked the entire loop in the snow. We had it all to ourself, we were frozen, we had a beautiful time enjoying one another’s company, and I took lots of pictures. No matter. I’ve got one!

Then!!! For dinner. More birthday yummies for me plus a toast to the flights of Where Would You Fly.

I knew I was saving this one wine glass for something!! Wine glasses were made for vegan root beer floats!! Coconut Bliss Vanilla Ice Cream smothered with an amazing root beer. Served with a vegan burger topped with sautéed sweet onions, crimini mushrooms, hot & sweet jalapeños, kalamata olives, with a slather of vegan kale, cashew & basil pesto on two slices of Italian bread. I’m full!!

First stop – India Kabob & Curry as he requested Indian food. We had India Kabob on a date day years ago so he requested a revisit!

Thomas and Camilla November 2017 Date Day

November 21 2017:

Thomas and Camilla November 2017 Date Day –

First stop: Washoe Lake. I’ve only been here maybe two other times with no wind. How gloriously beautiful.

I truly needed a deep dose of Mama Gaia today and this was perfect for grounding and processing.

Thomas walked barefoot and dug in the sand. It was perfect for him too. He and Lillian had a huge argument as we were readying to leave.

I sat down, took off my shoes and socks, and slowly buried my feet and hands in the soft, cool sand. I was instantly relaxed and brought into this wonderful moment with Thomas. It’s difficult to even find the words to describe.

Thomas also had a half sandwich and I had a cup of potato salad and macaroni salad.

September 21 2017:

Thomas and Camilla September 2017 Date Day – Thomas wanted a sandwich from Icecycle Creamery. He loved how they cut and made a heart shape with it and he enjoyed every bite. I had a few bites of fresh mint ice cream on top of a scoop of chocolate before Thomas claimed it! Yum!

Part 2: A visit to the new VibesUP store. I was drawn into the store this morning and told Thomas about. He wanted to check it out. He LOVED it!!! Amazing store, amazing energy, amazing products, and amazing mother and son running the store.

Then, at Thomas’ request, a rainy walk at Virginia Lake. And last stop was to get Thomas a couple pair of new pants. With this cool weather he put on pants last night and they were way short and a bit tight. Oh my gosh! He’s grown so much since Spring and shorts weather.

Thomas and Camilla July 2017 Date Day

July 21 2017:

Thomas and Camilla July 2017 Date Day: Great Full Gardens South Meadows Reno to go!!! Had Little Washoe Lake Beach all to ourselves.

Someone had already pulled the picnic table into the shade and we enjoyed a yummy picnic at waters edge. Another reason I enjoy this restaurant so much. Amazing messages on our food containers!!!

Bonus: Someone else had already attempted making a raft out of fallen limbs. Oh my gosh!! Thomas had fun with that. He wanted to bring it home. I’ve always said “yes” to bringing home sticks, limbs, and rocks. But I don’t think this would fit in the car!! I suggested we put it to the side so it could dry and come back for it later.

We went back just after sunset and got the package he so badly wanted to bring home. It needed to dry out a bit. And, it’s a lot longer than it looks! Almost didn’t fit!!

Thomas and Camilla June 2017 Date Day

June 29 2017:

Field trip and Thomas and Camilla June 2017 Date Day.

First stop – Field trip! Tour of Reno Airport Traffic Control Tower arranged by the awesome fellow who is teaching a group of homeschoolers coding and robotics. No pictures allowed inside so this is what we got!!

First we toured Atlantic Aviation’s building and hangars used by private plane owners. Then the control tower. Incredibly interesting and what an amazing view!!!

Next, we headed back to Atlantic to see the coding instructors little airplane. As we were headed back in the building a pilot asked if we wanted to tour a business jet. So, we did that too!!! Thomas enjoyed it …. a lot!!! xoxo … ✈️ … Thank you. And, bring us more, please. xoxo …

Next stop: Humane Society to share love with cats and rabbits. My eyes were sweating with all of the sweet souls with sad eyes asking to be loved.

By the time we left Thomas was feeling pretty sad about the huge number of them. I helped us both by pointing out that they were in a safe and cool place with volunteers and employees who care for and love them.

Then home for lunch! Next was ice cream at Thomas’ favorite ice cream shop. Salted butterscotch for him and 1/2 salted butterscotch and 1/2 dark chocolate for me.

Enjoyed our ice cream at Aubrey Harris park, enjoying the beautiful view. Plus, looking at the Air Traffic Control Tower where we were this morning. You can just barely see it in one of these pictures.
