Awesome Aimee

I decided to do my "Teach Me Tuesday" post on my dear friend Aimee! Aimee is an awesome Mommy to two adorable little ones; Angelica, who is four years old and Christian, who is two years old.

Aimee is a first grade teacher. Her mom and mine; have been friends for over 45 years!

 Aimee makes great use of her summer vacation time at home with her little ones! She is full of creativity and imagination. Her teaching skills are truly reflected in her little ones' lives.

On Monday, Aimee had a very special play-day at her home. Robbie and I were so sorry to have missed it.
I had a Doctor appointment in San Clemente.

Aimee was true to her word, and she posted these wonderful pictures from her summer play date.

Look how adorable the snack table was for all the kiddos!
 Her father made a working car wash! Can you imagine the spritz and spray upon your brow on a sunny and happy day?

Just look at all the other fun activities she prepared.

A dirt area with dump trucks and tractors to play with!

Look at this adorable sand and seashell station.

Most little children are so excited and appreciative toward the most elaborate to the simplest of activities.
Oh the fragrances of innocence!

As a fellow teacher, I appreciate and value the career, but Aimee and I both know, the fragile, beautiful, and maybe the most difficult privilege of Mommy hood, is the endless job of parenting.
God bless all Mommies everywhere! :)

 Before I go, I know today isn't August 1st. "National Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day". However, I was ravenously hungry on my way home from my doctor appointment.  So .   .   .  can you guess where we went ? ? ?

... CHICK- FIL-A !!!!!

Actually, the brand new Chick-Fil-A that just opened last Thursday in Laguna Niguel California on El Toro Blvd ! This is right across the street from the hospital where my little Robbie-Bobby was born almost 15 months ago. :)

 Let me tell you! The minute we walked inside this beautiful, clean and friendly establishment, the Manager immediately greeted us. He pulled my chair out for me, asked me about myself and my husband's military career, and he told us that several news stations had called him for comments concerning Chick-Fil-A and all the controversy that is occurring currently. What a GENTLEMAN! Chick-Fil-A, you win my courteous award hands down. Who and where, and how are you guys trained? That would be a great post. Will one of you please respond????

 Yummy! Even the little sauce and condiment packets are adorable!

 Gi Gi and Gampa went with us.
Gi Gi said she will return!

The manager, a very sweet young girl, another young man, and yet another young lady-server; all asked us if we needed anything: refills etc... All said, "It is my pleasure to serve you!" Just when I was getting sad about service and etiquette, chick-Fil-A rescued my faith in human kindness!
5 stars for chick-Fil-A *****
 Robbie's 1st. time having a Kid's Meal!
We chose the healthy route with chicken nuggets and applesauce.

While we were eating, a darling server offered Robbie a little stuffed cow!
 He was elated!
 Robbie even said, "Moo!" when he saw the cow.

Thanks for a pleasant lunch, Chick-Fil-A!

Here is my little cricket enjoying a cookie on our ride home!
Thanks Chick-Fil-A for giving my little one a wholesome meal and a day full of fun memories!

A few days ago you posted a statement -- " Jesus had fun ." What did you mean by that ? I am not being argumentative - just wondered. Thanks

I thought everyone grew up being told if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. :)

Referring to your comments latley.
