Ice cream for dinner...Have we lost our minds?

Kids in the van












Yes, we did it! We threw caution to the wind and went a little bit crazy and took the kids out for ice cream for dinner. It was great because we just told them to wash their faces and hands and get shoes on and get in the van. They asked about a zillion questinos, but we wouldn't tell them where we were going. They had been playing playing outside all day so they had scrubby play clothes on and the big kids were kind of freaking out about going to a restaurant like that. It was great. The whole 25 minutes into town they specualted, but nobody had a clue. When we pulled up to Jordan's Soft Serve they all started yelling. They were pleased...very, very pleased. Everyone ordered whatever they wanted which ranged from Jake's banana split (which he did NOT finish!) to Noah's teeny cone with sprinkles. We headed to a nearby playground to eat our "dinner." The kids had a blast and Brian and I enjoyed watching them. Sometimes it's fun to break out of the regular everyday mold. Sometimes you just need to have Ice Cream for dinner!

You totally stole this idea from the Gosselin's! Were any of your kids a "superhero"?

Umm Yeah I stole the idea! It was a great one. The only superhero was me because I talked Brian into doing it!
