Max and I got a call from the showing service at 7:45 this morning for an 11:00 am showing. While that may see early for some of you, it is PERFECT timing for us. Time to clean the house, get out, play, eat lunch, and come home for a nap.
While I furiously cleaned the house, turned on the appropriate lights, and Febrezed, Max tried to mop a little, but quickly gave up in favor of a Thomas video. I finished the house by 10 am, and we got out so that it would stay clean.
Our first stop was Southmoreland Park, where our Annual Shakespeare in the Park festival is held. It is also across the street from the Nelson-Atkins MOA.
And though there was a playground - I swear - Max was obsessed with all of the school buses parked by the Nelson taking happy kiddos on field trips.
After enough time with the busses, we crossed the street for some action in the park. There were TONS of geese. We tried for a few real artsy photos in front of the Nelson, but you all know how Max is with pictures.
A few seconds after the last picture, the entire flock of geese was bothered by a dog and proceeded to take off right over our heads. Max stood VERY still, and I had to squat down because they were so low to the ground. It was a little bit scary truthfully.
But that's okay because then a homeless family under a nearby tree started laughing, then wanting to see Max up close. It was time to go.
As Max and I pulled away from the park to our next location, we saw across the street none other than our favorite meteorologist NBC's Gary Lezak. If he hadn't been on the phone...
Finally, Max and I made our way up to Eggtc for some brunch. He flirted with every waitress in the place.
Now he is upstairs trying to nap. But as usually, his nap is being proceeded by a LOT of talking.
It was, all-in-all, a perfect date for Max and I.
