Wonderful Day

Sunday, December 07, 2014

Tomorrow is my son's birthday.

Yesterday we spent the day together as his birthday present. What a treat.

I had told him a few weeks ago I'd like to take him to a Broadway show for his birthday. He has a discount ticket place near where he works and tickets are half-price and can be gotten the day before. Not every show is "on the boards". Well, we got tickets for "You Can't Take It With You". It was quite funny and even though it was written such a long time ago, it is still timely.

We went to lunch first at a Belgium restaurant he wanted to check out (for the beer). Very good both the food and beer.

In spite of the heavy rain making it a mess to walk around, it was just a great day.

I very rarely get a one-on-one day with either my son or daughter, so even though this was a present for him, it certainly was a gift for me.

    Nomi: I'm just getting around to checking out if any friends have posted blogs. That sounds like a great day! I've had that experience with my son, thanks to my daughter-in-law. We've had two 4-day trips, just the two of us, so far. You Can't Take it With You! I'd LOVE that...all the eccentric characters. Happy for you.

    Oh how sweet. I would love to have one of those days with my son. Yesterday was my grand daughters birthday. I had a good time with the family. Have a wonderful weekend.

    Naomi,
    I am so glad that everything went well with the show and the lunch.
    Time with your son is so precious.
    Our son and his dad watch sports. Rarely do I get time alone with him.
    We visit when we are on the road to visit mother and on the phone when my husband is gone.

    Sounds like a lovely day, but you were circumspect about who in your party did the beer-tasting. And the name of the restaurant?

    I'm glad you had such a good day. Happy birthday to the boychik.
