August 2012 – Part 1 – One Perfect Day

Now I am not trying to say that I have not had other perfect days, because I have.   But, Alex and I had a wonderful day this month, just him and me.

Our day started out with breakfast at one of my favorite Dallas breakfast eateries: Cafe Brazil.

Then we drove to Stonebriar Mall, which I had heard has the best play area for kids of all the malls in the Metroplex.  We played and played.  Alex took some risks, interacted with other kids, yelled at complete strangers, and had a blast.

Then we went to the cookie booth and enjoyed a cookie while watching the ice skaters.

Then, we went shopping!  We went to the Lego Store, The Children’s Place, and (Alex’s favorite) The Disney Store.

We also rode the carousel.  Alex loved every minute!

After the mall, we ate lunch at a local diner called The Purple Cow.  They are famous for their purple milkshakes, so of course Alex and I shared one. It was delicious.

After lunch, we both went back to the house and took a nap.  It was a wonderful, wonderful day with my son.
