Big man, after a month off from dates in July due to a family vacation, we picked back up again today. You suggested checking out the sunrise down by the water, so I agreed to get up early and head out. Despite sleeping through my alarm, we still made it down to the water before the sun peeked up over the clouds.
You weren’t too sure about walking down on the dock, but enjoyed wandering underneath it. We found dead fish, dog tracks, and a whole lot of barnacles. You decided the water was pretty, but wouldn’t want a home next to it in case you threw a ball and it rolled down the hill into the water.
We decided to skip a trek up the hill and headed off for breakfast instead. You spent a minute playing with the long grass in the flower beds outside, before we headed in.
You opted for a cinnamon roll (“It’s bigger than a breakfast sandwich”) and grinned , but quickly said “NO!” when an older gentleman asked if that was his. He stopped by the table later and asked what happened to it all. You grinned, not saying much. After he left, you explained, “I think he was teasing. I like teasing, but I just wasn’t sure what he was teasing about.” We chatted about your upcoming school year and when I asked what you thought would be the best part of first grade, you said, “Well, I don’t really know about first grade mama. I haven’t been yet, remember?”
We wrapped up breakfast, grabbed our coats, and headed back home to see what the rest of the family was up to. Sunrise, breakfast, date, and home, all by 8:30.
