*we took the kids to the park, and got a call from our good friends to meet for ice cream. Asking your kids to choose between the park and ice cream, is like asking them to choose between Christmas and their birthday. However, we had been at the park for 2 minutes and with the ice cream choice on the table, they felt like that had been there a sufficient amount of time. We did discover that we had no money, so the deal was off, but then remembered our credit card. (ding dong, hello dave ramsey here) but I think even ole dave would agree charging ice cream is well worth it.
*during our fun ice cream social, ellakate was introduced to her first rub on tattoo by her friend eva. It is a lovely mermaid. It has caused me to do double takes whenever she walks by. good ink. I did overhear ellakate telling betsy.."when you turn 4, I will take you to get a tattoo." n.i.c.e. I have nothing against tattoos, but think you should atleast wait until you are 5.
