mommy date

Skyler and I had a great evening together. We painted pottery at Paper n' Clay and then went out to dinner. Just us.

First she took forever to pick out what to paint, but we were in no hurry for once, so I let her take her sweet time.


She finally settled on a vase that she can use "for flower gathering in the summer."


I loved having her undivided attention. She talked to me non-stop for the 1 1/2 hours that we painted. She's so chatty!


I tried my best not to reach over and tighten up her lines a bit. Okay! I'll admit I did a little touch-up when she got up to go to the bathroom. I couldn't help it. We pick up our fired pieces in 1 week, so I'll show you how they turn out (I made a coffee mug). I had wanted to do this for such a long time, and I will definitely go back soon and often.

Love my silly girl.

Isn't that the best? Julianna and I started doing that a whole bunch last summer. Now that basketball season is over we need to get back to our girl time. Hmmm maybe pedicures will be first on the list? Nah, if I know my girl we'll end up clothes shopping :)

I have gone to one of these places with the kids and they both love it... needless to say, I did too. It was just peaceful and like you said for once we were not in a rush. It was definatley one of those favorite days of all time for the kids...so simple. We need to go back..thanks for the reminder. i love you.
