I love lunch dates! It's such a great way to catch up with friends. I had lunch with my sweet friend, Kandi, today. I'm so lucky to have such wonderful friends like her. She inspires me so much. She is getting ready to go on a mission trip, so please pray for her. I wish I would have taken a picture of us today, but I was too busy just visiting and completely forgot. (Hey, Kandi, "I gots books!" LOL!)
I love that Derek and Ella Grace had their very first lunch date today. It is the first time that just the two of them have gone to lunch without me or Evan. Since I was at lunch with Kandi and Evan was at school, they made a date of it and went to Chuck E. Cheese. I love that this was completely Derek's idea to take her and how excited she was when he told her where they were going. They played games and ate pizza. Derek said several times while they were there she would stop and say, "Daddy, thank you for bringing me here. I'm having so much fun." =) She couldn't wait to tell me all about it when I got home. So sweet!
