This morning like most mornings I headed into the kitchen to make the kids lunches. Today I turned to our old standby, tray lunches. When they were done I thought they looked good enough to take a picture. So here they are our picture of the day.

Today was free Cone day at Dairy Queen, so after dinner our little family headed out to get celebrate the warming weather and Dairy Queens 75 birthday with a cone. We were greeted with a sign on the door saying the free cones ended at ‘6 pm sharp!’. With two kids excited for ice cream I had little choice but to pay for a pair of cones. When I asked the staff about it they were flippant and dismissive saying the free cones ended at six. I should have left right then and got the kids ice cream somewhere else. Instead we stayed and the kids tried chocolate dipped cones for the first time. They both loved them. It saddens me that I don’t want to take them back there again.
On a side note, I want to say it’s not about the money. I probably would have bought myself a blizzard instead of having a free cone myself. What bothers me is that they advertised all day free cones, that’s not what they delivered. What they delivered feels like a scam, bring customers in for a free cone, but don’t actually give away any cones. I’m sure more people bought something then just walked away. It may not have been their plan but sitting there with my kids watching the people line up it sure looked like it to me.
Tonight we made home-made pizza. The kids loved picking the toppings and putting them on the way they wanted it.
With Melissa back at work I find dinner prep resting on just me. Finding a variety of food that the kids will eat can be a bit of a challenge. Tonight we had BBQ pork chops with a side of pasta and veggie (peas and carrots(. They both seemed to enjoy it, though Violet wanted more pasta than pork chops.
