My date with Cooper

Ever since we spent the day in Vancouver back at the beginning of summer, Cooper has kept saying that he really wants to go back to downtown just to 'walk around'. He, just like me, really loves the hustle and bustle of being in the city. So we decided that just him and I weould go one night this summer. Since school starts next week, time was running out. So we picked a night and last night was it. We headed down just after lunch and met Tony at the Shangri-La. He took us up to the top and and showed us the view, which was great. Tony headed down with us and Cooper and him had a crepe on Robson before Tony had to head home to hang out with the other three kids who were left behind with Nana.

Cooper and I had a great evening just walking around, looking at the shops, and having dinner together.
What I noticed most was how grateful he was for everything. So many "thanks Mom"'s all night long. Made me realize, once again, how important theses one on one times really are. This was sort of a big one but I know that all it really takes is a trip to get an ice cream. Mental note to me to make this happen way more often, with all of them.

Awesome, Heidy. Glad that you both had such a great time. Also glad that you had nice weather for your evening - about 3:00am the thunder and lightening woke us all up!!!
Hope you can come on the 18th.
PS I think Cooper will be a 'city -slicker!'

So cool that you spent that time with him. He'll probably remember it for years to come.

Don't you just love it when they keep thanking you? When we took our girls to the PNE the other week they must have thanked us a hundred times throughout the day. It was so cute.
