So someone told me once that they would let their kids have ice cream for dinner once a summer and when they were all grown up they told their mom that this was their fondest memory from their childhood. So I have thought about this over time and thought it would be a wonderful idea, but have never done anything about it. Well, the kids have all been acting up a bit lately with all the changes pending at our house and I wanted to do something that they would love and would be very special so chris and I decided that today we would take them to this fun frozen yogurt shop and let them have it for lunch. They didn't know where we were going and were complaining that they wanted to go home, until they saw the store. We went in and Avery looked at me with wide eyes and said, "but we didn't eat lunch yet". Chris told her that this was lunch today. You should have seen the excitement on their faces. So this place is a self serve, so you pick the yogurt you want and put in the amount you want. Then you can choose as many or little sauces you want, whipped cream and candy/other toppings. It is all done by weight so you only pay for what you get. We had so much fun. We were the only ones in the place so we just ate slowly and talked. The kids loved it. When we were almost done Avery looked at Chris and I and gave us the most sincere thank- you I have ever gotten. Braden has been saying that our lunch today was the best. That sure made it all worth it for me. What a fun memory! I think this is something we will keep as a once a summer tradition.
On another note, I think I am going to scream if this baby does not come soon. My pregnancy has not been bad, but I am really ready to be unpregnant and I have been very uncomfortable the last week or so. Also the longer I go, the more inconvienient it is. The kids start soccer this week, chris starts softaball, and school starts next week. I was just hoping that I could have a little time to recover before life exploded. It doesn't seem like I am going to have much luck with that. Oh well... I guess that is life.
