Yesterday Daddy and Benson were so darn cute. Every time I'd look at them, all through the day, they'd be snuggled up in some configuration just enjoying life. Seriously melted my heart. Benson was loving being Daddy's pal and Daddy was loving being Benson's pal. Plus, they can watch 'Voltron' together.
Dad and Liv had a daddy/daughter lunch date -- Dad was feeling bad he'd had to work through her Activity Days one this week and wanted to show her an extra good time. I'm pretty sure he succeeded. They went to Red Robin and she was so excited because she got to order a HUGE salad (with Italian dressing, no less) and a HUGE root beer float! Then they went window shopping and it was just really, really great for them both. I tried to take a picture of the two of them but Benson dove in last minute and with the Double B you get just one shot when it comes to pictures! So it's a picture of the three of them, ha ha.
Here is a truly hilarious Benson story:
Last night as we were finishing reading scriptures KJ said that he thought there was something in Benson's underwear. Benson of course made a beeline behind the couch so we couldn't see and tried to act very casual and distract us like 'hey look, what's over there". We thought maybe he'd had an accident, so the Double B persuaded him to come over and let him check. He pulled his undies back, and there, nestled nicely against Benson's bum, was a FRUIT ROLLUP!!!!! Half way eaten and just being saved there for later. Oh my gosh. If you don't think that brought the house down!! We were all just so surprised and delighted by this wild boy we just busted up. Of course Daddy had to throw the treasured fruit rollup away, and between that and everyone laughing, Benny did need lots of snuggles from Dad to feel like he could go on.
Honestly. The adventures we have in this house.
We leave for California early tomorrow! Everyone is so excited, as you can imagine. The beach and a whale watching expedition tomorrow, and then three days of the happiest place on earth! I hope it will be wonderful. I'm sure it will. See you on the flip side!
