Guys Day Out & About

The boys and I had a great day out on the town today.  There was 3 inches of snow which actively turned to rain.  I drove the CRV, since Caz needed to ease into the winter weather again.  We hit the round around 11:30 AM and didn't come home until 6.
     The boys chose Percy's Place for breakfast.  We scored a win when we didn't have to wait to be seated.  Caz got his eggs and pancakes.  Coco got a breakfast for the ages, the Buffalo Bomb.  A croissant stuffed with scrambled eggs and buffalo chicken, smothered with cheese sauce.  You also get a choice of two sides.  Coco chose home fries and hash browns.  Two Potato sides.  The plate must have weighed ten pounds.  It was a mound of food.  And we got a free cornbread to take home.
     We finished eating in time to see the 1:30 PM 3D showing of Rogue One.  The previews were great.  The movie was fantastic.  Really well done.  It lived up to the hype.  The boys then went off on their own to Christmas shop.  They were really amusing.  The called Demi 3 times for help.  I had to help them out at the ATM.  They had me pull up the car and then close my eyes, while they loaded the car.  They were so excited about their purchases.  It wasn't the stuff.  It was their eyes lighting up at picking the perfect gifts that made the night.

Birthday Time

It felt like I spent most of my birthday at the Reggie Lewis Center for Caz's track meet.  The first meet of the season.  I really would have it no other way.  It was fun to watch him compete again.  He performed well, too.  He was pleased with his performance.  This in turn made me smile.
     We had a late cake session.  We ate got home late from the meet.  We ate dinner late.  But they still wanted to do cake and presents.  I told them we could wait.  But it was nice.  They were excited to see how they did with their gifts.  Caz's stole the show.  He went to get a collapsible snow shovel for my car.  He ended up getting a real shovel.  A real child's shovel.  "Use under adult supervision."  "For ages 6 and up."  "May cause injuries."  Well, at least he tried....

NE Snowfall Driving 2016

Today was the first time Caz had to drive with snow falling.  The snowfall was not intense.  The timing was just less than ideal.  Right at school commute time.  He didn't know it was coming.  My only real concern was allowing enough time to drive slower than the posted speed limit.  He did fine though.  No issues.  Another test passed.
