My parents’ birthdays are coming up this week. I had seen a neat idea on Pinterest where a daughter wrote to her father’s family members and friends and asked them to send letters, cards, and pictures for her father’s birthday. Everyone wrote about their favorite memories or special things they remembered about her father. I wanted to do this for my parents and my sisters were both on board to help. We sent a letter out to a lot of their family members and friends and waited. The cards started to come in a few weeks later. Eventually we started organizing them into a scrapbook. One of my sisters who lives out of state was in town this past week, so we used that as an opportunity to give the book to my parents.
I think they really liked it, and I think we managed to surprise them, too!
We’ve had a busy weekend, filled with errands, shopping, a neighbor’s soccer game, a visit with my parents, and something new…a dance class for Zoe. She started taking a beginner tap class on Saturday. We were allowed to watch and take pictures through the class. She had so much fun and even got to see one of her classmates from preschool there.
