I have come up with a very fun way to help me accomplish goal #4 on my bucket list, by scheduling one-on-one time with each of my kids; when we go out for fun, talk about them and whatever wonderful things are occupying their minds at the moment. We call these outings Special Dates. I document some of those dates here, hoping as time goes by, that the memories will be “officially” preserved. On this occasion, thanks to a Groupon I snatched a couple of months ago, my daughter and I were delighted to indulge our love for breakfast foods, by visiting The Breakfast Place in nearby Attleboro, MA. Sunday brunch, that’s gotta be my favorite meal ever; and in such good company it just fills me with joy. This cute little breakfast joint has a 60s air to it, and they play the oldies, which I believe Karla enjoyed. Their service is great; it seems to be family operated and they really give you the special touch treatment; making you feel very welcomed. The little lady and I spoke about the new school year and reuniting with friends, over a veggie omelette, with wheat toast for me, and scrambled eggs with a chocolate chip pancake for her. We also shared an order of french toasts, which by the way, were the best I’ve had in a long time. The servings were generous and we could not finish our meals so we took our leftovers to go. Karla liked it so much she plans to ask her dad to bring her back soon.
We then headed towards Roger Williams Park in Providence in order to cross off the last spot on my list of places to visit within the park, The Botanical Center. I must say this is a beautiful and serene garden; I think it will be my new favorite spot to sit and relax while reading a book. My princess also commented on how pretty and peaceful it was; she also enjoyed snapping pictures of the flowers and mom, among other things.
