I put the kids in bed around 730. At 8, when Dad finally made it home, the boys were still awake. He went in for some kisses and hugs. He quickly returned to the living room with both boys in tow and a very mischievous grin on his face. He told me that he wanted to take the boys for ice cream. About that time Sister heard her daddy's voice and decided that she needed to join in the fun.
We quickly changed clothes and loaded up. We went to have ice cream at 9 pm! Even though it wasn't how I had expected it, the Lord has heard my cries and answered my prayers!
The kids loved it!
They thought it was so cool that they got a special treat
and special daddy time!
