Spent all last month on mid shifts, so I got to spend very little time with him. So I made sure I got to spend some extra special time with him today.
A friend of mine rents a house on some farm land, it's got a ton of oak tree's on it, and I wanted to collect some acorns. I figured it would be a time to spend some time with my son so we went out there. We collected about 20lbs worth and then I let him watch the cows in their enclosure. He really enjoyed that.
About this time my friend got home. We went into the house and Daniel saw his Wii. He let him play some Big Game Hunters, and it was technically the first time he really got to "play" a video game. He had no clue what he was doing, but obviously had fun. We then went outside and he just ran around for a little while exploring. I then helped my friend get his bow sited in and Daniel got to see what shooting a bow was like for the first time.
He had so much fun that he passed out almost the second I got him into the car. Days like today make everything in life so worth it. Just seeing him so happy and having so much fun gives me everything I need to know my life is simply perfect.
