A date with my son

Date day for Braydon and I. With me off this week, I decided I wanted to spend one special date time with each kid. Doing something fun, and something that just the two of us would do. So today, Braydon and I went to the petting Zoo and Children's Train in Stanley Park and had a picnic afterwards.

What a great time we had. First we hit the train - which winds you through the great forests of Stanley Park. If you keep your eyes out you see some little villages, a moose, a mouse, and cool other things tucked away.

Then to the petting zoo - where we saw goats, cows, sheep, pigs, lamas, bunnies, chickens, rooster, a cute kitten that wanted to play with the roosters, and a few other animals. We decided that we should get a donkey, but neither of us think Dad will say yes.

This pig is the type that my Mom wants to get. I will send her the photo - it's as close as she will come to really having one.

We then decided to sit under a tree for some shade and enjoy lunch. Braydon got some climbing time in the park, and obliged me with a few photo ops before asking if he could hop in that sprinkler.

And what is the best thing after a sprinkler??? An ice cream.

It looks like the goat knew just what to do. That is so special to have a date with just you and your son.
