For Christmas we gave our kids the gift of time and a special outing. Each was promised a date with mom and dad, all on their own. I remember doing this once when I was little. I was the 3rd of five, and one on one time with my parents was really hard to come by. Especially both of them. It obviously meant a lot to me because it's something my parents did for me that I've always wanted to do for my own kids.
Mr. S was up first, and he will probably be the cheapest date by far. We rode a little train around the park, went to the zoo, fed the giraffes, and had a treat on the way home. He fell asleep as we drove home, so obviously he had a great time. Here are a few pics.
