Poor Daddy!

It seems that every time Jes tries to plan what he calls a "Family Date" something seems to go wrong! It's not that we don't have fun, it's just that they don't turn out the way he wanted or was planning! Last weekend we decided to drive to San Antonio and take the boat tour to look at the Christmas lights on the river walk. We planned to be there around 5:00, but didn't get there until about 6:30 (mostly my fault... oops!). Traffic was horrible. It took forever just to park the car. This should have given us a clue, but didn't. We went down to the river, and what do we find??? Shoulder to Shoulder people! After about 15 minutes of walking we finally made it to the restaurant. The wait was 1 hour. So, shoulder to shoulder people on a 3 foot wide sidewalk bordering a river... with a 2 year old! Not the best idea! Somehow I was able to keep Mason from falling into the river long enough to get seated at the restaurant. We ate, which was great, but by the time we finished it was 8:30. We walked up to the boat tour to find the line was at least 1 hour long! Mason was bound to be asleep in the next 20 minutes. So, we decided there was no reason to take a sleeping boy on a boat tour! So we walked back to our car and drove home. Like I said, it was fun, it just wasn't what Jes had planned. He gets really bummed out when his plans don't go quite right. He tries so hard, he is such a great Daddy and husband!
