family date day

Beginning with our first married Valentine's day, Adrian and I have taken a day to just spend out together, no computers, no set plan, just kind of exploring and finding interesting things along the way. We decided to continue the tradition with a family date day now that we have our little munchkin to tag along. Adrian took a day off of work last Friday and the three of us hung out together.

First up, pancakes (gluten free, dairy free and egg free) with black cherry syrup and a helper in the kitchen and beyond.

We hit up the post office, a thrift store and a really cool ministry at Irving Bible Church called Tapestry that has lots of resources for adoptive & fostering families, including Tapestry Kids Closet where families can get supplies, toys, equipment, etc. that people like you and I can donate. I love knowing that baby stuff that we are ready to pass along can go to such a specific and wonderful use.

How appropriate to see "Love Drive" as we were driving around on our Valentine's date.

We enjoyed lunch at Cafe Express where the employees were extremely helpful in assisting us with our allergy needs and chocolate sorbet at Paciugo's.

Remember David's first time to sit in the grass? We went back to the same park and explored the playground.

It was a wonderful day which we concluded with Gloria's for dinner. I'm on a big plantain kick. Yum!

I hope you have had a lovely Valentine's day whether you have celebrated with family, a special someone, friends or just treating yourself.
