My Dad turned 70 years old past weekend. Us kids were trying to figure out the best way to celebrate his 70th birthday weeks ago. It is a big one and an important one. My Dad has been working his entire life. As the matter of fact, he is still working full time right now at the age of 70. My parents took less than a handful of vacations since the day they came to the US. They worked so hard to support us while we were in school. We usually took him out for dinner every year on his birthday but this year, we wanted to do something special.
Living in Ohio is kind of hard to plan a weekend vacation. Every place that we wanted to go, we either have to fly or drive for a long period of time. Finally, we came up with an idea that we’re going to celebrate my Dad’s birthday at the casino. He has never in his life been to a casino. We’re not gamblers but we think it would be a fun experience for him.
We took off work early on Friday. Everyone hopped in the rental van and headed to Hollywood Casino (which is about 3 hours away). We spent Friday and Saturday at the casino. My Dad really enjoyed the stay and the time he spent with us. Hubby and I won $200.00. Yay! The trip wouldn't be completed without stopping by the outlet mall. Hubby and I was happy to spend the winning money there. I will share my purchase next week.
Happy Birthday, Dad! We really hope that you are going to stay with us for another 20 years
