Eating Out

Really it's the age old delima, you don't want to cook, you don't want to clean up, you don't want to deal with your kids in a restraunt, what do you do?!

Here is what we did for DJ's special birthday dinner a few months ago...
When I asked him what he wanted he said a hotdog, and I know he LOVES a delicious cherry limeaid so Sonic it was... but how to make it special? hummmm.... I know! Let's throw our playroom table in the bed of our pick up and eat our dinner there at Sonic. It was a smashing success. AND the bonus was no cooking, no clean up (besides spraying out the pickup bed), and no trying to keep the kids entertained or quiet at a restraunt. We were just as entertained by the cars driving by on Main Street as they were by us. We got quite a few honks and waves which made my DJ feel very special, like they knew it was his birthday. AND we got the kids ice cream just for being "so darn cute." What a fun time! Go ahead and file this in your mommy catalog under "what to do for dinner, when I am just NOT in the mood!"
