Our Special Day

It seems in the summer I have to work more weekends than the rest of the year. Or maybe it just seems that way because the sun is shining and I want to be outside. Either way, it certainly doesn’t make for a fun summer. So on Friday I decided to take a day off and spend it with just Austen.

Our day started off pretty good despite the threatening clouds. We walked Adler, loaded Peyton in the car and off we went to drop her off at “school.” Austen was so excited to tell his own teacher and all his friends that he wasn’t going to school today.

First we went to breakfast and Austen ate a big piece of crunchy French Toast complete with a side of sausage and a chocolate milk.

We then went home to change into our swimsuits since the skies looked like they were going to clear up. We headed to the north side of the city to try out a new water park with some friends. Since the weather wasn’t as perfect and hot as it has been all summer, the park was pretty much empty so we enjoyed having it all to ourselves.

After the park, Austen and I went with our friends to Dairy Queen. Austen enjoyed a stars and stripes popsicle but decided he liked my Blizzard better.

After Dairy Queen, we ventured to the Disney store (he is really into the movie Cars and Toy Story right now) where I let him pick out a car from the movie, “Cars.” He chose “Red” the fire truck.

We trucked on home after that and I realized that I felt more tired than when I go to work! Maybe because it was a Friday! Or maybe it was because Austen didn’t have a nap!


  • Yay! Such a fun day! Love the picture of Viv and Austen eating ice cream! We are headed back to the pool today!
