Pat walked through the door Friday evening and said, “Let’s go.” The thought of not having to cook dinner made me move faster than I have in months, and I was the first one out the door. We pulled through Wendy’s drive-thru and then parked in front of Pat’s dad’s house, who lives on a golf course. We piled into Dorsie’s golf cart and I couldn’t help but grin as I listened to Ledger squeal with delight while simultaneously stuffing chicken nuggets into his mouth.
I drove while Pat played 9 holes, and Ledger split his time between the two of us. It was a perfect night, spending time outdoors, watching Pat introduce Ledger to the game he loves, with a beautiful Idaho sunset in the background.
While I watched my two matching boys play, I realized these are the moments I’m going to miss. With twins on the way, life is about to change…and hopefully in a couple of years we’ll be able to replay Friday night, the only difference will be Pat will have two more crazy boys to chase around.
