There are a lot of different words that could be used to describe my Dad…
Hilarious, fun, compassionate, caring, understanding, encouraging, and supportive are just a few that come to mind. But, he is also very spontaneous. He's always up for an adventure and I admire him for that.
Today, my Dad and I took a road trip to Saskatoon and planned on being back home in time for dinner, but we were having way too much fun to go home so soon, so we decided to scrap the original plan and stay the night. We had such a great day together and here are some pictures to prove it!
It all started with a perfect lunch at a new-to-us sushi restaurant. My Dad ordered war wonton soup and a maki roll while I feasted on the best sashimi of my life. I ordered off of the al la carte menu and chose mackerel, salmon, and white tuna. Usually I prefer tuna sashimi over any other type, especially white tuna, but the salmon stole my heart today. You can bet your bottom I saved it for last! I always save the best for last
This sashimi was so incredibly delicious that I would have felt awful if I didn't share with my Dad, so I gave him a taste.
Ok, you caught me… I wouldn't have felt that awful if I didn't share
I think his taster reflects that.
Just as some of you feel like shedding tears when finishing your PB & Peggs, I felt like crying when my sashimi was all gone…
After lunch, my Dad and I departed for a bit as he had some business to do. I kept myself occupied, though. Saskatoon has the best shopping in all of Saskatchewan you know?
I tried on a lot of TOMS (more than I would have liked to) and couldn't find a pair that fit my Cinderella feet. I swear they changed their shoe sizes since the last time I purchased a pair because I couldn't even fit into their size fives. As embarrassing as it is, I had to try on a size 3 of the "children's" TOMS. I just couldn't bring myself to purchase a child's pair of shoes, so I left the mall TOMless.
Don't feel too sorry for me, though. I did hit up Lululemon and walked out successful
Dinner was at another new-to-us restaurant recommended to me by a friend. My Dad and I both ordered a Greek salad topped with chicken breast.
The rest of our evening was spent downtown. I forgot how beautiful this city is.
Today was a day that I can easily call perfect because I spent it with one of my very best friends, my Dad <3
