A Visit with My Parents

Yesterday (October 24) was my dad's birthday.  Mom took me, my sister Linda and Dad out for brunch at Cracker Barrel.
Family time.  Simple Pleasure 24.

 The foliage was beautiful, the day glorious.

 These trees across the street make for a beautiful view from Mom and Dad's living room bay window.

After brunch, I came back to my parents' for a little visit. 
One thing about my parents - I never leave them without feeling loved.

And there you have it.  Simple Pleasure Number 25.

So happy you celebrated your Dad's birthday in such a lovely way. Oh, Carol, I hope he has many, many more to celebrate!

Thanks for your photos, too. Susan

October 24 is a very good day for a birthday. (It's a family birthday for us, too.) Your parents look so cute and have a charming home in a sweet neighborhood. How wonderful to give love and to receive love and to feel loved. It makes the world go round. Happy Birthday week to your dad!

You are so blessed to still have your parents and them living in their own home. What a sweet blessing.
I'm glad you had a good day with them. And I'm sure you had a delicious breakfast at Cracker Barrell. I love those restaurants.
Happy birthday to your dad.
Hugs, cindy

What a blessing to have both your parents, and how fun to have a home to visit them in.

My mom lives with us now, she moved here after my dad died. But I was blessed to have him for many, many years and I still have my mom.

My husband's father never lived long enough to see our children. My dad was able to do that and for that I'm thankful!
