Ice cream and hand holding.

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.

  8. 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!

    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! πŸ™‚
