My dad and I have a lot in common. When we spend time together, we always come up with interesting things to do. Typically, we swim once a day, we go to church on Sundays, and we do errands in between. On this most recent visit, we also picked up a new hobby of cooking and baking. My dad was eager to help me try out new recipes in the kitchen with interesting components such as baking with almond flour, cooking without cane sugar, and testing out my new ice cream maker. We had so much fun.
Next month, I’ll go and visit my dad in Washington, D.C. and help him get packed up to move closer to me. He recently retired and has found a great new condo and community about 30 minutes from my house for people who are 55+. We are excited to be closer to one another and to do so many of our old and new activities together.
Recently, I got a new padlock to use when we go swimming to store our things while we are out at the pool. I got a set of two so that we’ll both have one for our new adventures!
