What a Day!

What a day! Now, for those of you who don't know, I'm a bit of a homebody. Not that I don't get out because I do, I love to socialize, but you won't catch me being gone ALL the time, that's just not me. Today the Davis family was in rare form with major plans today.

First we had the usual Small Group. That's normal. Then after Small Group it was my turn to volunteer in the office of the church. I do this every third Sunday during our second service where I basically answer the phone and help people with various issues.

After church we met Renee's (my stepmom) best friend Cheryl for lunch at the Cheesecake Factory. Her daughter is starting at The Ohio State University this year. They live in Houston so Cheryl was in town getting Bria all moved in and situated. Cheryl is so nice and so is Bria and it was a lot of fun to get together with her and catch up (Bria was at OSU helping with the move in).

After lunch we went to my mom's for a date we had planned. She lives in a suburb close to our church and they have recently developed its "downtown" area. My mom wanted us to walk around and see the new area and feed ducks by the creek. It is a really nice area, with a walking trail, benches and even paddle boats. Jamison decided that she wanted to skip rocks so she did that most of the time. We saw three ducks but due to Jamison's skipping huge rocks at them, they didn't come too close!

Sibling Love!

Jamison enjoying the walking path.

"Here ducks. I promise I won't hit you with these rocks."

We walked around a little and then went and got ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery. I really think that you have to get their fancy ice cream combinations to really enjoy stuff there. I just got a strawberry cone and it was just OK. Jamison did enjoy watching the lady mix sprinkles into her vanilla. Rondell had an apple pie mix and he loved it!
We dropped my mom off and then we were onto our next and last stop...a birthday party. My friend Tonya's little girl Jocelyn turned two and they had her party at Gymboree. It was SO much fun for the kids. If you've never been to one of these parties, it's a must. They have all of this kid-safe equipment and the kids are free to run around as well as participate in the activities that the place has.

Jamison on a huge tube where the instructor rocked them back and forth. It was cute.

The kids on the parachute. I wish you could see how excited Caleb is! I needed my video camera.

Me and Ron. Thanks Sara for making me take this picture, I like it.

Rondell gettin in on the action. Such a good dad!

The kids were pooped by the time we got in the car because neither one had a nap (the 20 minutes in the car for Caleb does not count). Jamison was asleep before we even left the parking lot. We had a great day!
