Evie's First Date

Chuck asked Evie if she would like to go on a date with him. She eagerly nodded her head. She went with me, Grandma, and Lindsey to the nail salon yesterday afternoon. She had a little princess pedicure. (Totally not worth the money I paid for it, by the way). She meticulously picked out purple nail polish for her toes and pink nail polish for her fingers. She sat on the great big chair with her tiny feet dangling just barely into the overfilled foot tub. The sweet pedicurist grabbed her tiny little legs and washed them with a scrub and lotion. Then she applied the precious purple nail polish (called It's So Grape!). Then Evie had her teeny, tiny fingers painted with a pink nail polish (forgot the name, but I'm sure it was something cute and clever as all those O.P.I. nail polishes have fun names). We went home and she wore a fancy maxi dress and I fixed her hair up with a matching bow. She also got to wear perfume for the first time. Daddy went upstairs to put on his fancy attire. He came down and escorted her out of the house, at which point I absolutely insisted on taking a picture of the adorable pair.

Chuck had big plans to take Evie to a very fancy restaurant for dinner, but the place he went to was closed on Sunday night. Instead, Evie picked McDonalds. Chuck was the best dressed person at McDonalds. After Evie slowly ate her Chicken Nuggets, apples, and french fries, she asked, "Daddy, when are we going to go on our date?" Chuck said, "This is it. What else do you want to do on our date?" Evie, "Play." So, Chuck took her to the park. Chuck was the best dressed person at the park. She played on the swing and the slide and all the other playground equipment. After she finished playing, Chuck took her to the grocery store so he could buy her some flowers. Chuck was the best dressed person at the grocery store. She picked out some red flowers and when they got home, he helped her put them in water. Absolutely precious. What a great first date!
