A Jaeger Day was mom and dad’s best kept secret. They excitedly planned the whole thing without any of my input, but somehow created the perfect tradition that is all about me. Here’s how it works in case you want to try this at home:
Step 1: Drop Genesee off at daycare so I can have the parents all to myself!
Step 2: Book VIP lounge seats to watch Frozen 2 on the big screen. Popcorn and sodas are required even though it’s a 9:00 a.m. showing.
Step 3: Take a stroll through Riverside Park and feed the ducks.
Step 4: Enjoy a Hibachi lunch experience at Sho-Gun restaurant.
Step 5: Play ALL the arcade games at Shenanigans.
Step 6: Jump for joy at Jump Start Adventure Park and be extra careful so my worst-case-scenario mother doesn’t have a heart attack.
Step 7: Pick up Genesee because we have to.
Step 8: Stop at Build-a-Bear Workshop to make a new stuffed animal friend and randomly run into Ashlee at the mall! (A pleasant surprise addition to the agenda)
Step 9: Order a mint shake at the Culver’s drive-thru and fall asleep before it gets delivered to the window.
Step 10: Repeat annually for the unforeseeable future; consider making this a national holiday.
