On October 8th we remember Jocie. We go explore the world, do something new, be with the ones you treasure in this world the most. Today we did something fun and new for the wee one! This was all her choice and of course I couldn't refuse.
We started our day at Bass Pro Shop...
...to buy a fishing pole!
Before the first fishing lesson we grabbed a bit of lunch. We headed over to one of the wee one's favorite spots to eat BJ's Brewhouse because as she says "They have the best macaroni and cheese."
After we loaded up on sugar we took to the pond for some "fishing".
At this point the wee one asked me why do we celebrate Jiggy Day? I explained to her that this day is the a very special person's birthday. I told her who Jocie is and who her mommy is. She immediately knew Lisa. Then she said I want to go play with Jocie and the bees and see where the honey comes from. I explained that she wouldn't be able to play with Jocie and why. She then asked me what she looks like. We looked through Lisa's blog and photos and the wee one immediately noticed her red hair and freckles then started counting her own freckles. She understood and said that she loves Lisa and Jocie. We talked about the rest of the Garlick family and how loving their family is. She said she wants to go visit because there is a new puppy and kids to play with! We will definitely make that happen!
After our talk the wee one hugged me said how much she loved me and I thanked god for giving me another day with this amazing child.
Then to Target to pick out a new toy.
My sweet wee one you are growing up incredibly fast! What a bright, witty and funny wee one you are. We love you Garlick family! Happy birthday Jocie!
