Thomas and Camilla June 2021 Date Day – Part 1

Thomas wanted to hike to the “D” like we did when he was younger, about 9 or 10 years ago. Still beautiful. Still a work out. 😥

It’s pretty sad as houses have been built nearly to the “D”, with more to come. The wild horses are losing their space. Also, I think we may have been trespassing. Oops!

Part 2 and 2.1

Lunch of sushi for Thomas with a Larabar for me as this restaurant does not serve vegan dishes. 🥲

Then to Maya’s for me. Sambar Vada and Plain Dosa. My stomach is happy and satisfied every time I eat here. The owners are so I incredibly friendly, too. I’m making my way through the menu. 😋😋😋 I absolutely loved what I had today. Uradh dhal fritters in sambar, and the thin rice and urad dhal lentil crepes are my spirit foods.

Throwback Post: Thomas and Camilla August 2016 Date Day


September 6 2016:

Thomas and Camilla August 2016 date day …. (Our date day got postponed by a few days as Thomas was sick!)

Ended the date with enjoying cookies after dinner. And then a starlit walk.

Little Washoe Lake ….

“Would anyone believe that playing with sticks and walking and splashing in the water would be so fun?” -Thomas

This was an impromptu stop as we drove right by on our way home from Carson City. And it was Thomas’ idea …. Kinda. As I had just thought, we should stop by the lake. Hmmm.

Thomas told me he was having so much fun and was so happy we stopped. I sat in the sand and watched him a while and then he asked me to join him. And I did. Took off my shoes and walked and splashed with him.

Cost of this date = $0 / Value = Priceless xoxo ….

First stop: Aladdin’s Market & Kitchen for lunch. Falafel plate for me, beef shawarma for Thomas, with tabouli and fries. We had fun walking the aisles looking through all the goodness. Decided on these Mastic Turkish Delights for dessert. Yum.

Second and last stop: A second dessert of a frozen hot chocolate for Thomas, vegan Granita for me. 😋😋😋

Then a walk in a favorite spot, our old stomping grounds. The white goose is still there, and we spotted cute goslings, and a few tadpoles.

Today was the Lillian and Camilla January 2021 Date Day

We had fries from Noble Pie Parlor – Summit Reno for lunch. Their fries are THE BEST!! Plus, they have a vegan option!! 😋😋😋 Forgot to take a photo of the fries! We ate them too fast!

Later we drove to pick out a dessert. Vanilla macaroon for Lillian and blueberry scone for me. The scone is incredibly delicious. 😋😋😋

We ended with a stop at the library. Even though it’s still closed, Lillian wanted to spend a few minutes in the garden behind it. We’ve frequented that little garden since she was 5 years old. ❤️❤️❤️ It was bitterly cold as we’ve got warnings of a blizzard approaching, so we didn’t stay long. 💙💙💙
