A Pookie Evening

I had planned on taking Noah and Lily to Red Robin as a combined celebration. Noah got a free kids meal for his upcoming birthday and I wanted to celebrate Lily's excellent report card. Amanda was not feeling well, so it seemed like a good idea. The problem was that I then wanted to combine it with a trip to Sam's and Wal-Mart, which Lily did not like. She ended up staying home with Amanda and reading in her room.

Noah and I ended up eating at the McDonald's in Wal-Mart. He loved sitting at one of the high tables and watching everyone. We took care of our business and then went to Sam's for dessert and more shopping. I had a 4-berry sundae and Noah got a chocolate milkshake. At the table next to us was a woman who was probably in her early 50s with a man I presumed to be her dad in his 80s. As they got up to leave he came over and complimented Noah as a "fine young man" or something like that. Then he gave Noah a quarter for his piggy bank. Noah thanked him as did I.

You can understand how this happened when you look at this photo. It doesn't get much cuter than that!
