We'd just finished dinner (which was this if you're looking for a yummy meal), and Nate suggested we ride bikes to get ice cream. I didn't really want to. I wanted to get dinner cleaned up and get an early start on bedtime. Nate is so easygoing and agreeable with whatever I suggest we do most of the time. I decided it was my turn to be the carefree one.
"Okay, let's go."
It was a *near perfect evening.
*near perfect means the kids fought about who would be the leader, Emmy got ice cream everywhere, I had to get after Jansen a little for not watching out for cars which made him cry, and dinner never got completely cleaned up. :)
