My number 2 daughter turned 16 last Friday. (see HERE). Because of schedules, (hers, mine and ours) we had to delay a special tradition. At 16 my daughters get a special date with dad, when it’s my son’s turn it will be a date with mom. it is just a special time one-on-one that we can share at a pivotal time in their lives.
Last night I borrowed a sports car from a friend and came up to the door and rang the doorbell asking if she was ready for her date. The first car date should be with dad. 🙂 We went to dinner at Longhorn’s, then to the mall shopping a little, then to the movies together. There wasn’t much on, but I had a gift card which gave us free passage to the IMAX to see Monsters vs. Aliens in 3D Imax style. It was actually pretty funny (although I don’t think I’d take my youngest kids to see it) and the Imax 3d was pretty cool too. It turned out to be a private showing as we were the only ones in the theater at 9pm on a Wednesday. We laughed and hung out and generally had a great time. Here’s the sweet ride we got to take. (Thanks Becky!) Much more fun than dad’s pickup!
