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.

Vegan Passion Fruit Coconut for me. Yum!!! Thomas had one scoop of Dark n Stormy and one scoop Home Means Nevada.

Thomas and Camilla October 2016 Date Day

October 24 2016:

Thomas and Camilla October 2016 Date Day – We are so happy and grateful they have a location in south Reno now!!!

First stop – Great Full Gardens South Meadows Reno – for the best food ever. Seriously. I felt transported away to a little food heaven oasis. It’s not just the food. It’s the choice of music, the yummy water, and the heart of the place.

Thomas had a Great Full burger. I had a vegan Reuben with a side of vegan slaw. The BEST Reuben and slaw I’ve ever tasted. We shared a cup of pumpkin soup. Thomas practically inhaled his food. He kinda liked it!!!!! Then we had a blow my mind vegan root beer float with coconut bliss ice cream and Oogave root beer.

Second stop: A visit and walk at one of our favorite parks with wind blowing so hard it was difficult to walk.

We reminisced about all the years Thomas has played on this equipment (since 1 year old). Specifically, how he climbed the “tree branch” every time, how difficult it was, and how he fell off one time. (The one he’s sitting at the top of in the pictures.)

Then for that walk in crazy wild wind … where we expanded further on our business idea for the huge pile of dirt we pass every time.

My heart is so full. I’m incredibly grateful I began Date days with them when they were babies. Most dates are simple and always have a nature component. They’ve shifted over the years and have great meaning for all of us.
