Mommy/Daughter Date

This past Saturday, Mommy and I were chilling at the house all by ourselves.  Auntie moved out a few weekends ago and Daddy was doing a video shoot for we were enjoying some mommy/daugther bonding time.

While we were eating breakfast I asked Mommy, "Is today the day we stay home?" (that staying-home-day is always my favorite day of the week).  When she told me that it was, my next question was, "Can we go on a date?"

Now before I go any further, I should probably tell you that Katelyn dates in my family are quite proprietary.  Daddy has dibs on Chuck E. Cheese. Mimi and Poppy take me to Chick-Fil-A. Gramma and Grampa are the McDonald's and Candy Store people.

Mommy, however, doesn't really "own" any date places.  That probably has something to do with the fact that the two of us are together a whole lot.  It's kind of hard to have dates when you're trying to get the normal day-to-day errands done, you know?

So, back to the kitchen table on Saturday morning...Mommy took a few moments to think about where we could go on a date (I really wanted Chuck E. Cheese, but Mommy was not about to try that place by herself at 8 months CEC belongs to Daddy).  Then, she came up with the most brilliant solution: the fountains!

So, the two of us slapped on some sunscreen and traveled down the road(s) to the splash fountains at a nearby shopping center.  We got there just as the day was warming up, so the weather was pretty much perfect.

I enjoyed running through the water,

posing with the statues (I very specifically requested that these pictures be taken),

and watching other kids play.

About 15 minutes into the fun, though, I decided that I really needed a "play friend".  So, even though I had a great time with just Mommy, I think I'll try to turn the fountains into a play date next time.
