Stephen explains The Perfect Date

My mommy likes to go on dates with me. It's cuz I know how to take a woman on the perfect date. Tonight when Daddy got home I said, "Bye Dada, I am taking momma on a date to Jack Box". So I did. When I say I am going to Jack Box you might think I mean this:

But I've only been there once upon a time a long time ago. I liked it so I call anywhere that I can find french fries "Jack Box". Tonight I chose this kind of Jack Box:

This kind of Jack Box is the coolest. Mommy likes it cuz the salads and I like it cuz of the trucks.
Lots and lots of trucks.
My mommy and I sat here in this spot and watched them for two hours.
(My mommy said to tell you, "Literally...two hours! Sitting in the grass. Watching trucks.)
Doesn't that sound like the perfect date to you? 
I am pretty sure that is why my mommy was excited to tell you that.
I am such a ladies man.

Some of the truckers were really nice. 
This man let me stand in front of his truck for a photo op.
I had a hard time looking at the camera though.
I mean I had trucks to look at. All around me. Big trucks!

I loved to watch them come and go.
Mommy said this is a pretty cool truck cuz it helps people.
It's an MRI Scanner truck.

The guy that owned this cool rabbit truck tooted his horns for me when I was standing right beside the trucks.
It might have looked like it scared me, but I was just making mommy feel better about being scared.

See, I am just cool, calm, collected.

Some of the truck drivers were so happy to see me sitting there watching them that they brought me trucker trading cards.
Daddy helped me put them all into my new trading card book.
The trucker man said that I can buy more trading cards online. 
I think I need to do that. 
The 26 that I got by looking cool to the other truckers is not enough you know.

Finally, mommy appreciated such a fine date that she gave me a gift.
No...not a kiss. Yuck! 
This was way better!

It is not just any ol' toy truck, you know.
It's a load haulin' truck.
You open it here:

And check out that load o' goodies!
The best Pez dispenser ever made!

Only you gots to watch out.
Daddies make good load snitchers.

So that is the way to take a lady on the perfect date and show her a good time.
The only thing that could make it better is to go on a Choo Choo Train Date.
Mommy said maybe we could do that for my birthday.
I sure hope so.

What a fine date you are! Some lucky girl is going to be so happy to be your date someday :*) My daughter drives one of those big trucks with her husband and she gets to see lots of wonderful things all over the country. Maybe you will get to ride in one someday.

Hey Stephen,

You are making it awful hard on me with my Nanna! She read this and wants me to take her on a "perfect date"! There really isn't anywhere in my town that has lots of trucks like that so I'm gonna have ta think bout this some.

I bet your Mommy was a happy lady when you took her home though. You are a smart guy. Maybe I'll learn something from you if I keep reading your posts.

It could happen...

Your pal,

What a special date you took your mommy on, Stephen! Especially since you got some nice gifts for yourself (but be sure to share them)! Big trucks are pretty awesome!

When my son was little, his favorite thing was trains so we used to go watch the trains come in at the train station while he was wearing his engineer hat and overalls. He even slept in his engineer hat. The engineer used to wave to us and toot the horn. Sometimes we would ride on the train. I hope you have fun when you get to ride on the train,
