A Date With Dad

Some years back, David started taking the girls, one-by-one, on  "dates".  They LOVE it! 

It got away from us over the past eight months or so.  Sunday, it was finally Mabel's turn.  She was totally excited.  Can you tell?

Around New Year's weekend, we received a coupon in the mail for discount bowling and a free pizza at this new bowling alley that had recently opened  for business.  Mabel claimed it saying they could use it for their "date". 

Sunday was their date and off they went.  David took these photos with his phone...

David said she was a real, wild bowler.  Ya think?!  I guess it didn't help that the smallest ball they could find was a 7 pounder.

She still scored a 77 without using the metal brace.

And then it was time for that free pizza.

They came home all smiles. 

Daddy/daughter dates started after he read Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters by Meg Meeker, M.D.  He wants to always be their hero.  A hero in the sense that they can always come to him; turn to him, no matter what their age or the circumstance they may find themselves in.

(The book has some pretty startling facts in them...ones you would not want any young eyes to fall upon.) David highly recommends it to other fathers of daughters.


  1. That is so sweet! I used to do that with my boys during the summers.

  2. Just too sweet! Love that pizza photo:-) I saw that book for Dads...Great to hear a stamp of approval~Big thanks to David!

  3. Looks like they had a great time. What a great Daddy!

  4. Oh that is a great book! I like her one about boys too. Bob has been trying to do the same, but unfortunately it is something that easily gets pushed aside. We need to change that! I really like the pics of Mabel bowling :)

  5. Looks like they had a great time! Great pictures! My hubby loved that book as well and has lent it out a number of times to fellow dads.


Thanks for stopping by!
