OK-Day, Fun Day

We celebrated Father's Day a little early this year. Bob works on Sundays, so Saturday was his day.

Although, to be honest, it was more Little Elvis' Day. Since it was a rainy morning, we decided to take our little man to the mall.

In a few years, I'm sure he won't be nearly as thrilled, but he was so happy to actually turn into the mall parking lot. We played with the trains twice, (he now knows they are Thomas trains) looked at catfish, ate in a restaurant and played in the play area.

He had a blast. And Daddy had a blast hanging out with a happy little boy.

The sun came out after his nap, and we headed outside armed with bug spray. The mosquitoes here laugh in the face of bug spray. They kept biting as we sprayed!

Instead of trying to keep bugs off the super-sweet Little Elvis, we decided to go to a car lot. We did this last winter with some success.

It was a huge hit this time. We didn't realize it was 4 or 5 lots in one. He ran from one lot to the next, chattering the entire time. He never stopped at any car in particular, because he had too many to look at.

We walked to Wendy's for a Frosty and potty break in the midst of our trip, and he didn't want anything to do with the Frosty if it was going to keep him from those cars.

While in Mississippi, Little Elvis started saying "Ok-Day" instead of OK.

"Want some ice cream?"
"Want to go play in the truck?"

He's also started telling me that he's had a fun day at the end of most days. I asked him as we were leaving the car lot if he had a fun day. He did.

When we were rocking before bed last night, he told me all of the highlights of the day several times. He told me about the cars, trucks, vans, fish, a dirty waterfall, trains, toyos (no idea what this was) and that Daddy was fun and funny.

All in all, a great day for the whole family.

So glad you had a nice day. And isn't it awesome when kids tell you they had fun, or spontaneously thank you for something? It makes the tantrums and meltdowns a bit more bearable.

Sounds like a fun father's day! I love it when our little ones tell us all about their day :)
