Evan and I do not get a lot of one on one time these days.
Usually Erin is around and she seems to need a lot of attention at times.
But Erin had school Tuesday morning while Evan was still on Easter break.
So I took advantage of that time for Evan and I to hang out and do something he wanted to do!
First stop, an early lunch at Bread Company in downtown Clayton. (photo taken using my phone) As we were sitting there, he just wanted to talk. We planned what he wanted to do for his birthday party this year. And it was kind of nice to talk without interruptions :)
Then we decided to just walk around downtown and look at the tall buildings. As I'm sure you all know by now, Evan is really into architecture and skyscrapers these days. So we walked down to the Plaza...
He really likes the tall building to the left...
It is a pretty cool building. I can see why it's his favorite :)
We also liked this one. It's a newer building across on the opposite corner from the Plaza.
He loved this color shaded walkway that connected it with the garage next door. I have to admit it was cool! :)
Thanks for the great time together, Evan. I love that I learn so much from you. That you help me see the world in a whole new perspective. Because of you, I notice things I might not take the time to notice in my busy, adult days! You know I will be scrapping this for us! :)
I don't remember sharing this layout yet, but I have had it for a while. It's a partial scraplift of Stephanie Wheeler's layout example for the Kelly Purkey Sketchbook 2 class. The photo is from a trip to the art museum summer of 2010, and made me realize last night how far back Evan's interest in architecture has gone already! Almost two years! I can't believe it has been that long. He really loved this piece because it reminded him of a tall skyscraper. I can't wait to see where his interests are two years from now! :)
