Ah, Summer. Time for beach vacations, movies, sports camps, Vacation Bible school, poolside fun and anything else to keep the kids from getting bored. The days are zipping by fast. No surprise there. Funny how those summer months fly while the school years seem to drag on and on at times. This summer, I’ve been pretty much home bound due to the bunion surgery, and bummed we must miss our yearly camping trip and fun on the lake. But never fear. Super Dad is here. LOL
Hubby is stepping up and making sure the kids enjoy their summer and have great memories to take back to school with them. He and my son traveled to the beautiful state of Montana for some much needed father son bonding time. What an amazing fishing trip. The pictures are just breathtaking. I think I know where I want to go for our 25th wedding anniversary. And I’m even willing to fly to get there. Now there’s a new one. I hate flying with a passion. LOL
Brave hubby is even planning a shopping/college touring trip for our girls. My oldest will graduate this school year (glup) with her sister right behind her the next. Maybe they will fall in love with the same college on this trip. Sure would make mommy feel better having them at the same school to watch out for each other. I know. I know. It’s good for them to be out on their own. But…. Who am I kidding. You never stop worrying or being a parent. It’s a lifelong journey.
The shopping trip should be fun and very interesting. Two giggling girls and their dad. Oh, what I wouldn’t give to see this first hand. LOL
I still remember those special times with my dad. The learning to drive in the mall parking lot. The changing oil and tire lessons. And my all time favorite…building the most awesome doll house from scratch.
It’s great to see the kids get some extra dad time. Makes all this hobbling around a bit more bearable and oh so worth it.
Have any favorite childhood memories you’d like to share. How about a time hubby stepped in and saved the day?
