A Date with Mom

My ds8 and I had a date this past weekend…he had two completed summer reading club sheets to turn in for free books (thanks for the free books Barnes & Noble and Borders).  I thought it would be a great idea to add lunch out with me and call it a date :)

My ds8 and I do not get much one-on-one time together and I miss it (and I suspect he does too, even though he probably wouldn’t admit it).  He is growing up so quickly and he is really good company.

We headed out around mid-morning, hitting Barnes & Noble first.  He chose his free book, and on the way to the register, he found an awesome bargain book about baseball to add to his growing collection.

Then we drove across the street to Borders where he chose his second free book, and I found a bargain book that will be a great addition to both our geography studies and astronomy studies this year :)

Afterwards I snuck in a quick visit to Michaels {it was right next door…and I had a coupon and a list :)}.

Then we headed across the street to Chick-Fil-A…I cannot remember ever having visited Chick-Fil-A on a Saturday at 12:30pm ~ and now I know why :)  Since there were no seats, we took our meals to the van…I found a shady parking spot, turned up the A/C, and pushed my seat back.  Ds8 joined me in the front passenger seat.

We had a wonderful lunch together…he read to me from his new baseball book, I read to him from the Chick-Fil-A records cards (courtesy of our Kids’ Meals).  I apologized to him for the fact that we couldn’t eat inside…but he said eating in the van was much better…and I agree :)

Oh my gosh! You just reminded me that I wanted to post about my very first Chik-Fil-A experience from two weeks ago. It was NUTS! LOL
