Yo Ho Yo Ho A Pirate's Life For Me

Nothing makes me happier than having a full day with my baby boy. Recently James and I had a mommy baby date, and boy did we have fun. James got decked out in a pirate shirt and classy suspenders and off we went.

Our first stop was Chuck E Cheese where James played all the games, collected tickets and won prizes, and rode the carousel ten times. Next stop was to get balloons because James insisted. The only balloons CVS had were Hannah Montana, Congrats, or It's Twins. Because I didn't want to give anyone the wrong impression, we went with the first two. James could have cared less what the balloons had on them, as you can tell from his pleased face in the photos.

We got ice cream, hit Starbucks, and then spent the rest of the day at the park.

I've been thinking a lot lately about getting unplugged and being hands free so I'm striving to put my phone away more and get out of the house with my boy whenever we can. I am proud to say that I have been "hands free" for over two weeks now. (I check my phone only when James is sleeping). If you think you're on your phone too much like I did, I invite you to join me in the magic that is living in the moment!
