This past summer, we noticed (because how could we not notice?) that Claire was struggling a bit. Our normally happy-go-lucky little girl was all the sudden not herself. While at Lake Powell, she mentioned a few times that she wanted to be the baby because everyone wants to hold and play with the baby. Boy! Whenever I have one of those moments when I realize one of my children are not feeling enough love, despite my best efforts otherwise, it hurts my heart a little bit. Courtney and I talked about it and decided that maybe what Claire needed was her very own "hot date" with Mom and Dad. She was thrilled with the idea and looked forward to it the whole day!
Like all of mom and dad's "hot dates, we ended the night with ice cream. A perfect ending for our girl!
