So I took Miles out on our first official Mommy 'n Miles Date. Miles didn't know what we were going to do until we got in the car that evening. His response when I told him earlier in the day that I was taking him on a "surprise date": "Hehehe. Oh, I love surprise dates! Hehehe." (In the picture he is fuzzy because he couldn't stop jumping up and down.)
I took him to the movie theater - his first time ever and my first time ever here in Montrose - to see Horton Hears A Who. We had read it a few times this past week and so I thought that would be fun for him. He was sooooo excited when I told him what we were doing - although he had no clue or concept of what a movie theater was.
He was real sweet and during one of the previews - for Narnia - he said to me, "No, this is scary." I told him to close his eyes and he tried that - but those dang eyes opened up again. Then he tried closing again and I helped by putting my hand over his eyes. He held on to my hand with a death-grip! When it was all over, he let go and was okay again. Sweet boy.
He enjoyed the movie - and I did, too. He had 10 million questions to ask me - 5 million during the movie and 5 million on the way home. He really liked it and wants to go again. It was fun being out with my oh-so-handsome date.
