It seems all too obvious what I should be writing about right now. Today is my dad’s birthday, and tomorrow is Fathers’ day. Overall, it’s just his weekend!
Because it’s his birthday, I thought that I should probably do something special for him. When I woke up, he was already gone to church for the mens’ breakfast there. I asked Mom if we could go to the Maple Valley farmers’ market. She said she could drop me off if I had a friend there. “Mom, I meant as a family!” The answer was no, because Taylor has dance photos today. Then Dad came home… And sent me out to mow the lawn. That’s fine. I don’t really mind that, but he didn’t even sit down to relax. Instead, he went out and started taking care of some of the burn pile in our yard. I had also hoped to spend his birthday night with him, but apparently Mom and Dad are going on a double date tonight, and my sister and I are not part of the doubling couple.
So, what are we gonna do? I’m gonna call my grandma and get the recipe for his favorite banana cream pie with Nilla Wafers and Dad is gonna be one happy guy when he walks in to that.
Keeping it simple… Sometimes that’s what people appreciate the most!
I love you Daddy:)
