Nice Night :)

I'm finally breathing well enough at the tail end of my cold that we decided to take a family walk to Dairy Queen (with our little red wagon, of course, for Maggie to rest in). It's our version of exercise, since the walk there and back undoubtedly burns more calories than the small ice cream each of us gets - even with the cherry dip!

One woman there kind of made me sad. She was there with her two kids, but she was on the phone the. whole. time. And it wasn't like her kids were talking to each other. They were each just silently eating their ice cream while mom talked to her friend. Nice.

The charming moment that made up for it still makes me giggle though. There were a couple little girls at another table. They were probably 8 or 9 years old. One asked the other one, "Do you fight with your brother?" And her friend answered, "Like every day." Even her tone said that was a stupid question. I was pretty amused.

Hope you've had a fun night as well.

Our kids grow up so fast. It's sad that some of us take even the smallest things (like outtings at Dairy Queen) for granted. Enjoy them while you can. They grow up and leave way too soon.

Ok, so now I want a blizzard... and I still think that cell phones have ruined civilization as we know it.

Yum DQ! I have seen that many times where the kid's are just there and mom is on the phone. Who is so important that you have to talk to them when you are out with your family. I can't think of any.
