Date day with Lillian! First stop … Swimming … And spreading love!! I made the big one. The other two made themselves! xoxo

Next stop …. Lunch! Salmon and garlic fries. Then a quick walk around! Cool!

Second stops were a couple of thrift stores to window shop. However, we did get a few items. So fun!! Then, home for some homemade dessert. Chocolate chip almond cookies! YUM!! Dinner will be a wee bit late since we just ate our lunch dessert! HA! Here’s the recipe for the cookies ..

Throwback Post: Lillian and Camilla July 2016 Date Day


August 11 2016:

Lillian and Camilla July 2016 Date Day …. July’s date day was delayed due to our travels to and from the 2016 Chromosome 18 Conference. So we did something different for this date day.

After dinner Lillian and I headed to Whole Foods to pick out a cookie from the “Cookie Bar” … cheapest dessert ever …. and made with real food ingredients!

Next up we took our cookies to Audrey Harris Park so we could eat with a lovely view. When we got there, we saw the park was closed due to an event down below at the Bartley Ranch stage. We decided to go for a walk around Bartley Ranch and have our dessert later.

We enjoyed a wonderful time looking at the old equipment and buildings, trees, sky, and sunset. After our walk we enjoyed a slow, quiet, and peaceful drive the long way back to our end of town. I just love this drive of taking in all the farms and older houses and simply how peaceful it seems.

Next up was to head to Geiger Way Lookout to enjoy those cookies with a view. It was dark by the time we arrived so the pictures are fuzzy, yet they capture some of the beautiful essence. So incredibly wonderful.

And, last we enjoyed another slow and peaceful drive back home. I’d rank this one up there with one of our most beautiful date days. Simple and wonderful. xoxo

Lillian and Camilla July 2021 Date Day

Lillian has never been a fan of traditional pizza. I’ve always made her pizza using a slice of gluten free bread. She does not like sauce. So it’s usually just cheese, olives, pepperoni and salami.

Today she wanted Blaze Pizza, as you can build your own, and they have gluten-free crusts. Still no sauce, but she was adventurous with all the toppings she chose. I cannot believe she ate this pizza! Go Lillian. They have vegan options, too. So I was able to get one for me to have for dinner. 😋😋😋

After pizza we stopped for choosing a macaroon for dessert. Then to window shop in a couple of stores. Lillian really liked the “it’s ok” sticker.

Lillian and Camilla June 2021 Date Day

July 2 2021

The Lillian and Camilla June 2021 Date Day happened last night at 9:00pm.

Drove to Inn n Out to get fries for Lillian. Then to the closed library to return books, and sit in their parking lot while Lillian ate her fries. 😳 Then home for a short walk.

The strangest date we’ve ever had, and …. Gurl!!! I don’t want to do that kind of date again. That’s too close to my bedtime!
