It’s Father’s Day! I hope all the fathers out there who are celebrating with their families enjoy their day. We drove to our daughter’s in Oklahoma City for lunch and a little celebration. It was just the four of us since the kids have all grown up, but the dogs made Papa feel welcome. Everyone was smiling just before I snapped the picture.
Our parents are gone, and the grandkids are not little anymore. Life changes but we still get together for holidays. Today the restaurant was full of families, fathers, grandfathers, and a few great grandfathers. Babies played with spoons and grandpa; and dessert was free to all fathers today. The cheesecake was delicious even if it wasn’t mine.
I got my husband a book and some coffee. There are a lot of books in this house and it is just one more, but we both love to read. And coffee is a staple. I think he liked both.
We’ve been married a long time and are parents of two children who went out and brought home more. Kids tend to do that. And with the newcomers came grandchildren and the family grew. Even if it was just the four of us today, it was a fun time.
I hope your Father’s Day was a good one. Tell your dad you love him and thank him for all the time he spent with you. Happy Father’s Day.
