These were taken on Saturday night, when the family (minus my sick husband!) went out for my dad’s 67th birthday. (thanks Cher!)
We went to Outback, well, attempted to go to Outback. My mom made call-ahead reservations on Friday, for Saturday night. When we arrived, we were told they had no record of us making the reservations and we’d have to wait about 30 minutes if we wanted a table, otherwise they could seat us at a 6-person booth with a chair at the end. We declined. The staff wasn’t very accommodating, even when I explained that we were seven ADULTS and wouldn’t fit into a booth, and some people in our party are unable to slide into a booth and need chairs.
We left and went to Weber’s in Ann Arbor (the same place Joe and I were married), and it was amazing. Yes, it’s more expensive, but the food was delicious and the waiter, Chad, was much better than anyone we would’ve had at Outback (although I love their salad!).
All in all, it ended up as a good night, no thanks to Outback!
Cher gave my dad a remote controlled helicopter, and he was so excited!
My father has been very strong, sometimes hiding how bad he really feels. He’s lived an amazing 67 years and I only hope we can have more. I don’t think he’ll ever truly understand what he’s taught me. I’m one of the only women I know who can tell the difference between different screwdrivers and wrenches. I fixed the showerhead in my bathroom by myself, because of what my dad taught me. I may not be able to drive a stick-shift, but I know how to change my own tire, in heels, if need be, because my dad thought it was necessary to teach me.
Happy birthday dad! I love you! 🙂
PS: This is what happens when you take a photos of a tree with a slow shutter speed, and move the camera really fast.
