A Day with my Son

Chad wanted to drive his pickup on the highway and he was off work today so he and I rode over to Fort Scott, KS.  Someone had told me yesterday about a place called Sekans.  It’s a florist, a print shop, a decorating shop and a baking supply shop . . all under one roof!  Might have been more stuff in there but . . gotta love a small town!  🙂  It was really a neat shop.  I saw a leather chair I really liked and Chad said “That’s too fancy for your style!”  I asked him .. what is my style?  His response:  You have no style!  OK!  Thank you!  Let’s go looking at the baking stuff.  I found a few really neat things and then we went to Nu Grille for a burger.

Chad gets so aggravated with me always having my camera but, my new phone makes such great photos that I hardly ever carry my camera with me unless there’s a chance I’ll get some really good photo opportunities.   Burgers, fries and onion rings don’t qualify as a good photo op!

We had a great day together.  He enjoyed his pickup on the road and I love riding in it.  I didn’t like riding in his little car at all!   Dang, I hate to think that on Saturday he’s going to be moving out again.

    The difference this year is you won’t be crying, right? lol….so good to have a relationship like your’s and Chad’s. You are both very fortunate. Did you find lots of neat stuff at the place you shopped?

    That’s a great picture of Chad! I love the expression on his face. And hey, I haven’t had a burger and fries like that in years, so yes, it was a great photo op.

    I think it gets a bit easier every time they come home and then return to school or to their adult home. I am not saying there isn’t a bit of a transition period…I am glad he had a vehicle, everyone is healthy and you are able to snap such great pictures. Your men are such good sports!!!

    I love that store. I need to make a point to stop. Not much for Chad to look at, though. Was he patient?

    There used to be some great flea markets downtown, but I think they burned in that huge fire a couple years ago.

    Our quilt show is coming up over Labor Day. You doing to try to make it?

    my son is moving out on Saturday to go back to college too – his second year at university. we have to drive along with him in a second vehicle though to get all his stuff there – a 12+ hour round trip, UGH. Not looking forward to it! Not looking forward to him being so far away again either 🙁
