My Special Day: Mom and Dad All to Myself

There are moments when life catches you off guard. Typically we just go about our day. We wake up, we busy ourselves with our to-do lists and then it's time for bed. There are days when we take a step back, we understand the reality of how fast time is passing. When I look at my oldest daughter, she reminds me of how fast time is slipping by. I find myself in those moments becoming very sad, but then I realize how much of a blessing the moment I'm experiencing is. I don't allow myself to dwell on the sadness of time passing but rather enjoy my little girl for who she is. 
 
Abby is a caring, loving, passionate girl. She is an amazing big sister and a great example to her siblings. Giving her a date-day was exciting because of how much she blesses others. We look to her for so much. Taking a day to show her how thankful we are was something we couldn't wait to do.
 
As the oldest of four, these date-days are a pretty big deal. From the moment we told her it was her turn she was counting down the days. 
She chose to go see "Brave" on opening day, have lunch at Red Robin, and do a little shopping. We had such a good time just enjoying our oldest girl. We were able to focus completely on her and what she likes for the afternoon. I can't tell you how important dates-days are, especially for larger families. 
 
 
A recap of our day Instagram style.
Love you Abby girl!
