Dinner with dad

21 Aug

Yesterday afternoon, I received the following text from my Dad:

“Where are we going for dinner tonight? Dad”

I didn’t realize we had dinner planned, so my reply was:

“What do you mean? Were we supposed to go to dinner tonight?”

He texted back:

“No, but Mom is heading to C-bus so you’re cooking!”

Then I remembered my Mom was visiting my sister in Columbus. I had a good laugh from his text and decided we should go out to dinner. It’s a rare occasion that I get to hang out one-on-one with my Dad, and this was a good opportunity.

It was nice having my Dad’s full attention for a couple of hours. I can’t say we talked about anything of real importance, but it was really great to just talk to him.

The older I get, the more I realize how lucky I am to have the parents I do. No matter what, I know they’ll always be there for me – whether it’s making a big, life decision or simply going to dinner.

{love them}

    I feel the exact same way about my parents. I think we’re the lucky few!

      We certainly are! Thanks for the follow, by the way. Love your pictures :) Much better quality than the ones I take on my iPhone!
