Behind the Scenes - Afternoon Popsicles




Popsicles in the afternoon is awesome. I think it was the quietest 10 minutes of outside time that we have had in a while. PLUS the girls think it is great and fun and as an added BONUS I don't have to worry about them climbing up and down the brick steps every 2.5 seconds while I {try to} relax in my rocking chair. 

Oh and don't forget our water cups... please. 

HOWEVER the behind the scenes part of this scenario is that the popsicles came out at 5:15 and dinner was served maybe 30-45 minutes later and let me tell you how little food was consumed... The popsicles were just little frozen Hawaiian Punch drinks that the boys up the street gave us (and I did not want to give them that much sugary sweetness in one sitting, so the popsicles were a good diffuser). 

Lesson learned - popsicles earlier rather than later in order to have an empty dinner plate

Yeah... that was bad! But its just one of those kinda days!

  1. Ruining dinner with cold treats? That's what summers are for. ;) Your girls will remember the sticky sweet joy of it. :)

    1. Yeah... I agree! Maybe next time I'll load up the popsicle molds with yogurt so at least I know they ate some with a fraction of nutritional value : )

  3. perfect day to ditch dinner. One night does not a lifetime ruin ... and one night of sticky sweet goodness definitely makes a lifetime memory!

    Confession: we did ice cream to celebrate something before dinner one night, so I was stopping to get it and the girls said "but, mom, we didn't eat yet." I said, it's ok, we're celebrating - let's be crazy. Took them a few minutes to get on the bandwagon, but then it was all good :)
