Unexpected Treat

Tonight my mom called and asked if all 4 kids come over. We hadn't ate dinner yet, so she thought Mark and I could go to dinner. We were thrilled and jumped at the chance.

My dad took Ty and Katie to indulge in their favorite cuisine. McDonalds! They had a good time with grandpa. I guess he had to finish their ice cream cones because they wanted to play. Sorry Dad!

My mom took Emily and Sarah to JoAnns to buy fat quarters and buttons. She brought them back to her house and helped them cut out and sew a purse. They turned out great! How neat to say that you bought fabric and made a purse all in one evening! I'm glad my mom likes doing fun stuff like this with my girls. I know they enjoy it.

Mark and I went to Roadhouse and had a delicious meal, but best of all we got to talk uninterrupted the whole time. What a treat that is!

Now we are settled in and watching a movie. What a fabulous Friday night and great way to start the weekend!

Wow !! That was so nice of your folks !!! I was fortunate to have great grandparents while I was growing up and I have never forgotten... neither will they !!

I honestly don't think it's fair that you have both grandparents there - send one set our way! jk :)
On a more serious note it is great that your kids (and you) are so blessed. God gives us just what we need and at just the right time, doesn't He? Tell Mark 'hi' and give the kids all a hug from me.

We had so much fun. I love the fabrics the girls picked out. They are so creative.
Wish we could do this more often. I love spur of the moment outings. Love you all,
Love, MOM
