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.

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!
September 7 2009:
Stayed in Reno & took it easy this Labor Day Weekend.
Took Thomas & Lillian to the library on Saturday. They love the library!
Posing with her early Bday Present from my Mom & Frank!
Date Day with Lillian – Out to eat at one of her favorite places – The Olive Garden! (July 2021 Update – Ummmm …. Not anymore!! Once we began eating at locally owned places, we’ve become french fry experts, for local spots!)

Lillian and Camilla May 2021 Date Day
It was a momentous date day. First time for Lillian to go inside of anyplace in just over a year. She was excited. Clothes shopping for our first stop.
Part 2 through I lost count, as we made so many stops, I’m delirious.
Fries and lemonade at Noble Pie Parlor. Then to pick up dessert. Watermelon macaroon for Lillian, ginger rose dark chocolate for me.
Barnes & Noble, Michaels, and stopping to gaze at the full moon on the way home. (Psst …. I do not like shopping. Drains every inch of energy out of me. I shall crawl into bed, and pass out shortly.)

Lillian and Camilla February 2021 Date Day
Part 1: Fries and garlic knots from Noble Pie Parlor – Summit Reno, with a salad made by me. First time having the garlic knots …. Delicious!!!
We already knew we love their fries. I’m so thrilled to have this amazing restaurant so close to us!!! Snickerdoodle cookie for Lillian for dessert, heirloom sea salt chocolate for me.
Part 2: A walk on one of our favorite walking trails. Thomas learned to ride a bike on this trail. Many memories here. They sneak up and grab you when you least expect it. ❤️❤️❤️
We had a part 3 to the Lillian and Camilla February 2021 Date Day.
Reading together … 🥰🥰🥰

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. 💙💙💙
