Caden's day with Mommy

I sent everyone else to school and daycare today and kept Caden home with me. He has never had a day with just the two of us. I wanted to spoil him rotten and give him ALL my attention for a change. He got to decide what we did all day too.
We started by going to the park to feed the ducks and play on the swings. We sat on the dock and fed the ducks for about 30 minutes and had a ball. I love to feed the ducks as much as the kids do.
He made me swing with him and it was fun, I haven't done that in ages.
Then we headed to Chuck E Cheeses to play games. He was thrilled that I followed him around and played with him. We even played a couple games together. He got us on the roller coaster simulator thing and we had to try all 6 of the different rides. My head is still vibrating.
Then we headed to Los Cucos for lunch. He LOVES the chips and cheese there. After we stuffed ourselves we came home and went for a bike ride to the park. And yes, we changed in to shorts as it was hot. Eat your heart out snow dwellers. lol
We stopped and tried to fly a kite in a big field on the way, but his mother is retarded and could NOT get the kite in the air despite the strong breeze. This will have to be a job for Daddy.
We came home and played Mariokart for a few minutes then went outside and flew a styrofoam airplane in the front yard while we waited for Spencer to get off the bus.
He had so much fun today, he never stopped smiling. I asked a few times if he wanted to go and get the girls and he immediately said NO and that it was HIS day. It was so nice to just spend some one on one time with my little man.
Sydney said she missed him all day at school and Peyton said she did too, but only when I asked her. lol

What an awesome thing you did!!! I remember growing up that mom would allow us each one "sluff" day a year and we would spend it with her all to ourselves too. It was great and I love being able to look back and remember my time with her. What a great mother you are!!!
