We drove three hours or so to Lancaster, Pennsylvania this weekend to experience a Day Out with Thomas. I booked it in February not realizing that it was Fathers’ Day weekend. Last year, my husband went away for the weekend to Atlantic City to see Phish. These two experiences are about as different as they could be, I think.
It was really fun to go on a road trip with the boys. Hugo even behaved reasonably well at Waffle House when we went out for breakfast on Sunday. That is a first!
Shortly after Go woke up on Sunday, I said “Hugo, today is a very special day for Daddy. It’s Fathers’ Day. Oh! And it’s also your half birthday.”
“It’s my birthday!” Hugo exclaimed.
“No, no. It’s actually your half birthday. Today you are two-and-a-half. Today is Daddy’s special–”
“No! It’s my birthday!”
Happy half birthday, Mr. Go. A good time was had by all, even Daddy.
