Mwako had to leave today. 😔 But before he did, we got to have one nice little goodbye breakfast together! 🌻 Then I was able to catch up on some housework, and in the late afternoon, Christopher and I played with LEGO again. It’s a really nice date night activity, and our partner even joined in for a little while after his nap. 🥰
🌞 First Watch Breakfast 🌞
I had never been to First Watch before! I wish we knew of it sooner. We really miss Metro Diner (ours shut down to become a funeral home, of all things) and this seems to be practically the same restaurant. Very similar menu and atmosphere. I can’t wait to have a little morning date with Christopher here.
I had avocado toast and grapefruit juice. The servings weren’t too big and the meal wasn’t otherwordly or anything, but it was good. I want to come again.
Mwako happened to snap a photo of me getting ready to snap a photo… 😄
I saw my friend off right after breakfast. Then I caught up on my blog and on my chores.
🚉 Date Night 🚉
After that came date night, and more LEGO fun was had! We put together our brand new freight train. Christopher was happier all throughout than I have seen him in a long time.
If I’d known how much he would enjoy this and how we would bond over it, I would have made it a priority in our lives and entertainment budget ages ago. I feel a bit sad in that regard over the lost time, but at least we can make up for it now.
Excited for the first test run!! 🚅
It’s really powerful and fast! 🤯
Here our partner took the controller. The scream is him. That, my friends, is the soundtrack of our lives, every day (and neither my husband nor I could live without it).
After this, they opened a pack of glow sticks that Mwako got for me as a little surprise and began to have fun with them…
I had to admit it looked pretty neat!
All in all it was a really wonderful day. I’m looking forward to having more fun this weekend!
