Wednesday's Walk- Mother/Daughter Date


One thing I love to do with Molly is go out on dates.  Last week I took Molly out to the Gingerbread House, one of our favorite date spots because of the chickens and yummy cookies!

This is the cookie Molly picked out, with home made cream on the side!



Yumm!!

They have flowers like this all over the place, beautiful!

I have often heard it said that fathers should date their daughters, so one day a daughter knows how she should be treated by a boy who takes her out.  But I think the same goes for moms and daughters.  I want to date Molly so she knows how to have relationships and friendships with other girls, and with her own daughter some day.  I cherish our special time together, and I love just laughing with her while she dips her cookie in her cream and gets it all over her face.  I know there aren't too many more times she will let me take pictures of it, so I will enjoy the ones I get now, and look forward to our many dates to come.

Love this, Kate! I love to go on "dates" with my boys, too! James and I had a lovely day out on Monday. We went to La Roe's in Grand Rapids and ate lunch on the patio by the river. It was so special...Dream a Little Dream even played in the background. Then we walked by the river and through the shops...and James picked out some candy in the candy store. I love to hold on to moments like that.

That cookie looked delicious! And her sweet curls are equally yummy! =) So glad you are treasuring these moments.

Love to you...

Awe, reading that last little bit almost made me cry! what you said is so true though!

How fun! I think you're so right about date and even more than that, when you have both of your kiddos, getting to spend one on on time with them. It gets harder when there are more, but the time spent with each of them individually is priceless!

I LOVE that you "date" your daughter! This is something my hubby and I have talked about doing with our kids, because I think that one on one is SO special. And what a fun place to go!
