Recently, a friend suggested I try to plan a special "Mommy and Palmer Day" before our baby girl arrives. I've been wanting to take Palmer to the drive-thru Texas safari, Fossil Rim, for some time and when we couldn't coordinate a date with friends and I realized that precious time is running out, I decided to go spur-of-the-moment.
Although I was a little nervous to drive 1.5 hours away from town (in case of labor), I did make a mental note of several small-town hospitals on the way to our destination.
First stop: Dairy Queen, also known as "Texas' Small Town Stop Sign". Palmer LOVED his Dilly Bar ice cream treat. (What Texas kid doesn't have fond childhood memories of a Dilly bar??)
However, when we had friends like the one below come and actually visit us, he was a little terrified.
