Shopping dates!

It's that time of year again! School is just around the corner, so it was time to have me some shopping dates! We headed down to Vegas since Bry had to be there until Thursday. We kicked of the week by hanging out in the pool!
My first date was with Dawson. It was fun because he was actually excited. I think this is the first year he has been excited to have a shopping date with me! We had a great time shopping and of course we had to get some treats! The nice thing about Dawson is that the date is often stress free and short and sweet! I love to spend one on one time with each of my kiddos. Our conversations are fun and different than when we are all together. I really cherish these little dates!
The next day after lounging the morning away at the pool, it was Addy's turn! I love that we both love to shop. However shopping with her can often be tricky! Addy has to try most everything on, which takes a lot of time. So it is never in and out when shopping with her! Plus she puts a lot more thought into her outfits and actually has a fashion opinion. Dawson only has strong opinions about his shoes at this point! Which often means my dates with Addy are a wee bit longer! Just more time to spend and chat with her! It was a great week, and I had the best dates around!
So now that the shopping is done, I think this calls for a little last minute play time before school starts!
