she's a cheap date

This afternoon, my little one and her daddy headed out the door without me. She jumped up and down and jabbered all the way to the car. 2 hours and $2.62 later, they came home. He was smiling, she was glowing. I was all ears for her eager recap. Then her talented daddy made a little recap of his own. Melt.

    So precious!
    Way to go, Daddy!
    My husband and I try to take our 3 kids on individual dates, too. Unfortunately it doesn’t happen as often as we would like.
    But what I really related to in this article was the elevator/escalator rides at the mall.
    That has been/continues to be my son’s FAVORITE place to go on a Dad/Mom date. To the mall to ride escalators and elevators. He is now 7 🙂

    Melt my heart.

    I can’t wait to see her! And the rest of you too!

    Why in the world did I ever think I wanted a boy instead of a girl??? I’ll never know. 🙂

    what gabe said at the end was so true. i grew up with absolutely no extra money for anything. ever. but my daddy loved me and would spend hours helping me in 4-H and FFA. the time was what was important. not the money spent. i look forward to recaps from emma after her “dates” with daddy!

    Kara watched this no less than 10 times. Funny thing is Brian and Kara had a date at the mall today as well, but there was no limo involved. There was the play area, ice cream and escalators. Love the special bond daddy’s have with their little girls.

    This made me think back to the times my daddy and I spent together. We didn’t call them dates but I have wonderful memories even after all these 71 years since the Lord called him home. Keep it up, Gabe, and God bless you.
