Another Big Trip Out

Well, we had to be in Dallas on Wednesday for an RSV shot (BOO), so we decided to make it fun--I'm reveling in my newfound slightly-less anxiety. So after the shot, we had lunch at Chipotle. Dakin really enjoyed that--he ate a lot of tortilla and was very seriously checking out a blonde lady and her blonde daughter (did I mention he likes blondes?). So that was pretty exciting for him. We told him he needs to lay off the stalker behavior, but he wasn't listening.

After lunch we trooped across the road to Whole Foods. This is the first time that Dakin has been in a grocery store post-'crash', and he LOVED it! He was so interested in everything, and didn't get bored at all, despite the fact we were in there for an hour. He had fun checking out this rack of Gruyere and Emmentaler, and the lobsters, of course. The whole thing went so well that every time we are out there and need to go to Whole Foods I'm going to take him in. I feel safe taking him in there.
On the way home, he was, naturally, exhausted. Great day, all in all.
DON'T FORGET: Tomorrow (and through 1/22) you can vote for the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation to win ONE MILLION dollars to help cure SMA! If we can get a cure for SMA, it may help with Dakin's disorder. So I am asking, for this sweet sweet boy, please use your 5 votes on Facebook to help him.

So glad that Dakin got to get out for a little while! Reading this made me realize how much I take for granted, and just how lucky I am.

Also, I wanted to let you know that I am truly blessed to know you and have you as a friend! Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog!

Love you all xoxox~

Mmmm, Chipolte! I haven't eaten there since we moved from CA :(, it used to be a favorite of mine...

That's so great that you guys were able to go out into the world and have such a great day!

I'm glad that you all had a chance to get out! I'm glad that you're having less anxiety.
