Last weekend we took a break and went to the beach with the kids. It felt good. We've talked about doing one on one dates with our kids for a while, and since both NZ and Carla have been sidelined with terrible colds this weekend, I decided that I'd take Sal on a one on one date today and leave the sickly at home.
I told him we could go anywhere he wanted today. Without skipping a beat, he tells me he wants to "go to da mall". I ask if he's sure that's where he wants to go and he says yes. I asked what we would do on our mall date and he said "we will share a lemonade".
So, that's exactly what we did.
We did a little walking and window shopping and ran around the playground once or twice before heading to the bookstore to read a few books together. After the bookstore, we headed to Wetzel's for a pretzel and lemonade.
We happily devoured our pretzel and lemonade and headed back home to take a nice long afternoon "rest".
