Took the Train to see Dad


My dad decided on me coming to Massachusetts to visit him separately from my siblings. My brother didn’t want me to go with him because he would have to share a bed with me if I went during Christmas. He only has so many beds at his apartment, and there is only 3 bedrooms, so that makes things a little cramped too. I took the train for 5 and a half hours. Luckily, I didn’t have to see my siblings the previous week, so I got to enjoy some more time for them to not aggravate me. I had a chance to spend some quality time with my dad. As soon as I arrived, me and him went to an Italian restaurant in downtown Boston and we each got a Pepperoni cal-zone. We ate everything on the plate and we were so full afterwards. My dad asked me if we should go buy a “ca…something” for dessert after we go to the movies. I forget what it’s called, but I saw my dad eating it as we were walking back to his truck, and he said it was so delicious that he kept on eating it. I decided to take my dessert out of the bag, and I ate it with him. After looking at my dad’s blackberry to decide on which movie to watch, we went to the movies and decided on watching “We Bought a Zoo”. That movie is pretty good, and it’s a little funny. There was this one scene that bothered me though where I saw the wife continuously bringing lasagna home for the husband, then he had like…10 lazanyas in the fridge. The same situation happened with the son, where the zoo employee’s daughter kept bringing him the same kind of sandwich every day.  I couldn’t help but wonder what this world is coming to, with all this extra food being given. I guess everything is all about the looks to impress others. Well, I’ll just say it like it is. It’s just the reality. I told my dad about that and he explained that the girls seem to figure out what a guy likes to impress them. After we got home, I did in fact tell him a lot of stuff about the birds I have been feeding. I knew that he could keep it a secret from everyone else, which is why I told him. That night, I shared a few of my YouTube videos with him. The next day, we went hiking at Great Blue Hill. You could see the city of Boston on that hill, which is about 15 miles south of it. I also made a couple of videos of some birds. There was a woodpecker in one video, and I’m not sure what the other bird was. It’s some sort of a common bird. That night, I watched a movie called “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”. I then shared a few of darian03’s videos, and a few of my new ones that I made the day before. The next day, before I left on the train to go back, we went out of a breakfast place for an early lunch. My dad got a fried egg with home fries and something else. I got 3 stacks of French Toast. After that, he bought a water for me and I left. He insisted on buying a snack for me too, but I was okay with just the water. I knew I would be having dinner as soon as I got home anyways.

Here is the video of a new video series that I am doing. This shows the sky view on the top of an old observatory.

  1. I’m happy to know that you and your dad had a bonding moment. Sounds like you both had a great time and enjoyed each others company. It’s an amazing feeling to be around love ones you haven’t seen for a long time. I haven’t seen my parents for 3 years, and although there is Skype, it’s never the same when you see them in person. I hope and pray, you and your dad will have more family time together in the future. Wishing you and your family of the wonderful blessings.
