A Fun Afternoon

Brandon had exams yesterday and today, so I picked him up from school and we went out for lunch. We haven't done this in a long while. I took Jordan for breakfast a couple of times last fall, but since Brandon is now in high school, he didn't get to go.

I took the camera and got this picture of him coming to the car. He doesn't even know that I did it. He is camera shy and doesn't like to have his picture taken right now. Is this something that all male teenagers go through?

If you look closely, you can tell it was a cold day because the camera caught Brandon's breath. It was windy and the temperatures have plummeted after two days of rain. I'm amazed that we don't have a skating rink everywhere.

Anyway, we went to lunch and then went to look around a shop that sells new and used games. He loves to do that and then he lets me know what games he would like for future reference. In other words he gives me his Wish List. Today he had trouble finding anything that he was really interested in. His tastes are definitely changing.

After that, we came back here and he went on the computer for a while. We talked a bit about his schooling and things that were happening in his life. Before we knew it, it was time to pick Jordan up from school. A very enjoyable afternoon.

  4. Paki-paki aka clap clap for spending such a bonding time with him.

    Back yard skating rinks reminds me of my days in Canada. My neighbour's kid made his own and had great fun.
