Brian, Dan and I flew up to Pittsburgh two weeks ago to visit my parents. It had been my mother's birthday and I thought a good time to go see her. It was an enjoyable time spent with family.
On this trip, I ended up not renting a car because my Dad insisted that their car was there for my using. The first day I asked him for the keys to go somewhere, I felt as if I was back in my teens trying to get away with something! After asking where I was going and how long I would be out, he proceeded to hand over the keys. My first thought was to say "where's the closest car rental place?!" The next trip was even more interesting. I sat in the back seat with my two boys, while Dad drove and Mom told him where to go! Once again, I felt like I was back in my childhood. It's funny how things seem to stay the same between parent and child, while child to parent changes. Parents....you got to love them. :)
