Daddy-Daughter Date w/ Chloe

Back at Carl’s today after tuning a piano.
But the funnest thing was going on a Daddy-Daughter Date with Chloe! We first went to the Provo Rec Center (I got home kinda late, so we didn’t get there till about 7:30pm). We went around the lazy river and played like crazy in the whirlpool (which she was very proud to get out of 16 times in her own!

Lastly we went to Baskin Robbins for ice cream – and, upon Chloe’s request (pleading!) we each got 2 ice creams! (Hey I’m a sucker when I’m in a date with my almost-6-yr-old dream come true daughter!)

Chinatown – I was hoping for lunch with Ben, but no dice. Hopefully my friend got some good rest.

One of those (tough) days…

Do I deserve all these blessings?! I know the answer’s yes, but those thoughts were wracking my mind today…

Our cup runneth over…we are indeed blessed. Done bought it – my dream car…
This very one was still available 3 weeks later. And it is gray…not blue as I originally thought. Even better :). I could own this puppy for a long time…like 10+ yrs!
