Spring Fun at the Park with Dad

As soon as we had a little warm weather, the kids were on the roll to play outside.  We decided to go to Marland Heights  Park but before we headed there, we dropped by at my FIL and asked if he wanted to go with us.  Surprisingly, he willingly went with us(he seldom goes).  My husband was even surprised that I talked Dad into going lol.  I guess, it has something to do with the long Winter and he kind of got stuck inside the house as he doesn't drive anymore.  So when I asked him, he did not hesitated.  I feel bad that we no longer visit Dad everyday because of my husband's schedule at work.  We try our best though because I can't imagine how hard it is for him to live alone in his house.

Anyhow, we brought our tennis ball and racket so we had some exercise.  It was still chilly that day but because we were playing, we did not mind the  weather.  It's nice to  have some special bonding with Dad.
My father-in-law is turning NINETY oNe in few more months.  He is doing pretty well  at his age.

After the annual and cold winter, everybody is ready to leave the house, whether or not they want to :) Spring makes us feel so alive to be outside and enjoying the fresh air. Even if we don't play tennis!

A fun day at the park. Nothing better at this age, and to be with their dad!

he doesn't look 91. Can he still play with the kids or have problems walking already?

Chubskulit Rose said...

@Makoy, he can walk just fine and play with kids but he can't run anymore.

That's a great bonding experience with your family. It's nice to know that your father-in-law is still as healthy as he is despite of his age. How I wish I'll reach 90 years old too and healthy.

since we have 4 seasons here in America it is wise for us to take advantage of the nice and warm weather :)

It's so nice of you to make an effort to include your FIL in activities like that, I'm sure he very much appreciates it. :)

I love it when kids get together with daddy and grandpa.
IT's a different kind of bonding you know.
Wishing more years to come to your FIL so he can reach the centennial age. :)
