Once our kiddos were old enough to stay at the house by themselves for a bit, Pete and I would go to the store together we called it our mini-date lol. If the entire family went, Pete would make the kids link arms with him and they would do the Wizard of Oz skip with the kids behind me, singing lions, tigers and bears oh my. If I turned around to glare at them they all froze lol. Could have killed them half the time back then but miss it now :-)
Lauren, what a sense of humor & good will Pete must have had. No wonder you miss him so much.
