12 years ago I started dating my now wife. Her family home was about .25 miles from a local ice cream stand. We would often times take the short walk to get a treat, holding hands the whole way. Last night, we visited with Pappy and Addison suggested we go get some ice cream after dinner. I’ve taken this stroll so many times before and this time felt a little different. This time, as we took a step out into the street a little girl’s voice said “daddy hold my hand”. K reached up and held my hand for the walk. 12 years ago I got ice cream with my love, last night I got ice cream with my family.

Aww, that’s so cute! Is Addison your wife? Addison is the name of my three year old grandaughter. We don’t know any other Addisons. I like your blog, I look forward to reading more about your family.
Yes Addison is my wife’s name. Thanks for the comment and following our family.
Absolutely precious! Looking forward to reading more of your stories!
Thank you very much.
from your love to your life. Pretty neat steps!
What a lovely story, thanks for sharing it with everyone
I remember taking my boys for ice cream when they were little. Now it’s our 5 grandchildren that love sharing ice cream with their grandma! You are making precious memories. Love the post!
Thank you very much. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I’ll be in the same boat.
Awesome story! Nothing better than making new memories!
Thank you. I love the memories that we’re making.
So sweet of you, like your story.
Thank you for your “sweet” comment.
That is adorable! I remember when my kids used to do that. Now they are too old to hold their mamas hand and are pulling away in more areas than one. Love your post and can’t wait to read more!
Thank you for the comment and reading. I’m trying to take it all in because I know one day they will no longer want to hold dads hand.
It totally warmed me up your post! Oh, right now and always, I’m missing my little siblings (12 and 16 years of difference between us….ugh…) and that’s the closest I have of having “kids”, hehehe. Thank you for sharing, is a super cute post. Gonna keep reading you! 🙂
Thanks so much for those kind words. I’m glad you liked and thanks for following along with us.
Please…is my pleasure! 🙂
It felt so good to read your story. Small moments hold big joys of life! ^_^

Thank you very much. The idea for the post came to me while the family was all asleep while dad drove home.
Simple but adorable!
