All Your Ice Cream Belong To Us
Photo-A-Day #1626

Dada had Eva for the day so he took Eva and (Uncle Mike) to Borders, Toys R Us and Dairy Queen. I had coupons and gift cards I needed to use so I wanted to go use them.

At Borders I picked up the book Career Renegade by Johnathan Fields. My Life Coach Kim Ann Curtin suggested this to me and since we are going to get started with sessions soon I figured now was as good a time as any to get started. So I picked up that book and also picked up a watercolor book for Eva. She did some water color painting at the Eric Carle museum and enjoyed it and so she picked out a TinkerBell book with the watercolors attached. It has been so long since I’ve done any watercolors.

We went to Toys R Us because I had a $10 gift card but I needed my Toys R Us credit card so I left the toy there and we continued to Dairy Queen.

I love taking Eva to Dairy Queen because it is fun to watch her eat ice cream. She barely touches it and it gets all over her. She was swapping my ice cream for hers over and over it was funny. Uncle Mike certainly had a laugh or two.

They're all mine!

Later on we went to my Uncle Rich’s place for a cook out. He even had a singer/guitar player there who was singing all the great soft rock hits. He was really good and my Uncle pretty much provided a nice sound for the neighborhood. We had a nice time and came on home.

Oh and this morning at church Eva’s timing was once again spot on. Fr. Gabriel (a priest we like and who Baptized Eva) was consecrating the host and we were kneeling. Suddenly Eva starts saying the prayer that we say for Grace before meals. The kid has great timing. After church we saw that Fr. Dave’s lawn had gotten “Flocked” It was covered in pink flamingos. We took Eva to check them out.

You've Been Flocked

And here is one of those weird but cool connections. Today I also worked on Kim Ann Curtin’s Website/Blog and on her Consulting Page I saw a testimonial from one Mr. Christopher Williams. Christopher is my inspiration behind the Photo-A-Day project. How small a world is that?

    It sounds like you and Eva had a nice day. It’s wonderful that you can spend quality time with her,and that you include “the adopted son”. I’m sure Mike enjoyed the time.

    Dad,
    We did have a nice time. Eva loves her “Uncle” Mike and we love having him at the house too.

    I love and miss her cute little face!!! Have a safe trip to Florida and see you when you get back, things should be a little less crazy for me by then…(Like they ever are). Talk to you soon xoxo

    Thanks Shelby,
    I think that Eva is really going to enjoy seeing you again. If you want a laugh take her for ice cream she is a riot, not that she isn’t all the time anyway. She will have tons of stories of Shamu when she returns.

  7. What cuteness covered in ice cream! Love it and love Dada days…which my twins now call Daddy can we come…even to ride or to his job…awesome to have watched their relationship grow after 7=yrs… nothing like the man you love with the child or children you made together.
