Best Day EVER!

I figured after yesterday’s negativity, I should write about how awesome our Sunday had been.

We were up at 6:59 (by we, I mean Nolan) and went to the early service at church.

After church we went to the gym since we didn’t make it on Saturday.  Nolan wasn’t in much of a mood to be left at the gym child care.  After 25 intense minutes on the Expresso Bike I went to get a towel, which is inconveniently in front of the glass enclosed childcare area.  Nolan was waiting at the gate.  I couldn’t bear to leave him again, since I could hear him yelling “mama” so I just went and got him.

I had driven all the way to Downtown Norfolk (their childcare opens the earliest) and it seemed like a waste for 25 minutes.  So, I figured, let’s have an adventure.

There’s a Tide lightrail station behind the Y, so we bought a ticket and hopped on.

D’egg was too busy so we went a little further (such a trooper!) and had Max & Erma’s in the mall.

After lunch we went to Gymboree to get him a hat since I can never keep track of his hats.  Luckily they were having 40% off everything, including clearance.  So, we ended up with the hat, sunglasses and “flip shoes” as Nolan called them (flip flops).


We hopped on the train and went back to retrieve the car.  This is Nolan’s face when I said we were heading home.


Ha!  Actually, the day pretty much just stayed awesome from there.  We woke Josh up (he worked the night before), got cleaned up, and went to a family BBQ where Nolan got to play with the big kids and everyone had a blast.

Seriously…best Sunday, ever!
