Dao was being a very good boy today. He helped me clean up the toys and organize the house; therefore, I took him out for a treat. First we went mini-golfing and he made a hole in one. Then he ate almost an entire jumbo hotdogs and popcorns. After that we headed over to the ghost train. We had to wait for half an hour just to get on the train. Though the ride was filled with fun Halloween spirit, Dao was ready for a nap.
After the ride was over, I gave him milk and drove around town enjoying the beautiful red and yellow autumn leaves and listening to Sophie Milman’s latest album In the Moonlight. I got this album a few weeks ago, but haven’t had a chance to really listen to it in its entirety until now. I liked the album so much that I stopped by Starbucks drive-through, grabbed me a venti cup of coffee frappuccino, turned off the engine and wrote a review on a piece of napkin. I really miss blogging about music now that I no longer have the luxury to do so.
After that I drove around bait more and then headed home. As soon as I put the car into park, he woke up. He didn’t want to go back in and wanted to go table train so we headed to Barnes and Noble. He played train, lego and read some books. Before we knew it, it was already 7 p.m. so we better headed home. It was indeed a fulfilled father-and-son day. I can’t ask for more than these precious moments together. I did leave all of my own issues behind while I was with him.
