fun mom makes a brief appearance

Hubby is out of town for the bulk of this week and I tend to have some sad boys hanging around when Dad is gone for longer than an overnight.

Tonight, after dinner, (did you see that?  after dinner!), I surprised the boys by taking them to the library to pick out some new books.  They were thrilled and we had a great time loading up our "library bag."

I then shocked their socks off by pulling into McDonald's and announcing that we were making a stop for hot fudge sundaes.

Gasp.

I think someone liked his first sundae ever, ya think?

On the way home, we jammed to some fun music on the old XM Radio.  A benefit of satellite radio is that we can replay a song over and over if we like it...

and like one we did...  we sat in the driveway dancing for about ten minutes....

And then we were home and drill sergeant mom arrived with orders for push ups and latrine duty jammies, teeth brushing, and lights out!

So adorable!

I had to laugh because "fun mom" appearances are ALWAYS brief in my house. :)

Praying you are sustained
