Today I took Phoebe out for a date. Dave and I try to take each girl out individually, although we aren’t systematic about it. Phoebe had a couple of gift cards from her recent 9th birthday, so she and I went shopping!
First we went to JoAnn’s Fabric Store, where she picked out some fabrics she wants to make some tote bags and other projects with.
Then we went to the Gap and got a few outfits for her – they had some great deals!
Then we had a little lunch at Panera. I love that Phoebe likes salads. We both got the “You-Pick-Two” with Greek Salads and Turkey Sandwiches. Yummy! Phoebe wanted to sit in these upholstered lounging chairs that had little tables attached.
It was a nice time. We didn’t have any spectacular conversations, but sometimes it’s nice just inhabiting the time together.
