Default Simple fun with Dad (or Mom)

One of Manuel's posts got me thinking about the fun times I had with my dad on weekends when I was young. He worked hard all week and at night I had homework and he needed to relax.

But on Saturday or Sunday he would take me somewhere. It might be as simple as a trip to his office where he caught up and I played secretary or "typed". Sometimes he took me to the zoo or the State Capitol Building, or fishing (off the bank). Nothing cost much and I loved being with him, just the two of us. This also gave my mom a much needed rest!

What good memories do you have?

I recall the very first movie I went to "Blue Skies",the first book I read as a child "Randolph The Bear who said No",my very first childhood friend ,a gal named Sandy.
I recall my first pet,a turtle that i named Myrtle.
My first family vacation was to the Six Lake House in Monticello,NY
I recall my Kindergarden teacher Mrs.Moskowitz ,my first dentist ,Dr.Brodsky,first doctor -Harold Cook,MD.

I could go on but I would only bore everyone.

We would go on Sunday drives.


Also, there was a turnoff to a really cool park from one of the main streets in town. I remember that we would start begging my dad to turn off and take us to the park every time we got close to the turnoff. My dad loved to have his back rubbed and hair combed. We bribed him all of the time to take us to the park. Looking back, he would have taken us anyway. lol

Not only do I have wonderful memories with the things I did with my Son and my Daughters but I also remember doing things with my Dad.


When I was a little boy growing up in Portugal we were quiet poor and there was no money for movies or shows or going to a zoo. What my Father was show me things about nature. I learned about plants and animals including reptiles and birds. He explained things during the night such as the phases of the moon and about the stars. We took a lot of walks in the countryside and I will always treasure those wonderful memories.
