Daisypath Happy Birthday tickers

This blog captures my thoughts and observations of Amelia since there are so many wonderful things I want to just bottle and enjoy. Time doesn't stop and while I will have memories, it will be nice for both her and me to have these in-the-moment snapshots of her life.

Dairy Queen

We had a great weekend. We went to Greensboro and met Daddy for dinner. He was down there watching the ACC Tournament. We then went to his hotel and swam Saturday morning before heading to see Aunt Jeannine and her family. Jeannine, Hannah, Amelia and I went shopping for the remainder of Saturday and that was fun. (Of course!) We went to church with them and then back to their house for lunch before heading home. It was hard to have to ask Amelia to stop playing in the back yard with Hannah - they were digging and exploring and it was so fun to just watch them having fun together. Plus it was sunny - we haven't seen much of the sun at home.

On the way home we had a number of potty stops and when we stopped at a Dairy Queen at supper time I decided to see if Amelia wanted to have something to eat. We had already gotten a parfait at McDonald's at an earlier potty stop so I wasn't sure if she was hungry since we were also dealing with the time change. She did want some chicken nuggets and they had applesauce as an alternative to the fries so she enjoyed her kids meal. She wanted to know what her toy was and I tried explaining that she was going to get to choose an ice cream treat for dessert instead. "They don't have toys here? Dairy Queen doesn't have toys? Why don't they have toys?" It wasn't s spoiled brat kind of thing, it was just so surprising to her. Even though there are some lame toys that Wendy's and some other places have given her, they at least had something they tried to pass off as a toy. We got her the small ice cream cone and still she was flabbergasted as we walked out to the car. There she was between licks, "Why doesn't Dairy Queen have toys?"

So today we get home from Nana's and she was playing in her room. She came across the Dairy Queen pretend food that Aunt Amy gave her at Christmas and she says, holding up one of their ice cream sandwiches with the DQ on it, "Mommy! Look, Dairy Queen USED TO HAVE toys. They just ran out and don't have them anymore!" She seemed so pleased to have figured it out, I didn't correct her.
