A Birthday Date for Solon...

Thursday, September 8, 2011
Solon is so blessed to have such generous family and friends and was blessed by lots of gifts this year on his birthday.  Scott and I talked and got him a few little things but decided to start a special tradition with each of our children.  We would take each of them on a special "solo" date just with mommy and daddy in honor of their special day.  Now as we add more children this might get tricky but I think about how much fun it is for the child!  This year we decided to take Solon to Build-a-Bear workshop for the 1st time and then to his favorite place to eat - Panera - for his favorite broccoli and cheese soup (I know random :).  He had a great birthday date and Scott and I enjoyed spending a little quality time celebrating him before Baby #2 arrives...

Solon picked out a "puppy" after much time looking and debating...
Then he had to push the little pedal to help stuff him full....
A hug test to make sure he was just the right "squishiness"...
Then off to a special bath and brushing so Puppy was already to find "attire" to wear...
So there was about 50,000 accessories to choose from but for those of you who know Solon well, it will not surprise you one bit that he chose (without any help) a Cyclone shirt and football for his friend :)...
...then off to make Puppy's (yes that is the name he chose) birth certificate so we could take him home with us.

It was a special and fun experience for him...he was in awe and speechless the majority of the time but couldn't stop talking to Puppy on the way home and LOVES to play football with him and daddy!
