Day 276: Baskin Robbins

July 10, 2012

If it’s okay with you, I’d like to make more of my acts of love into acts for our family. It’s so difficult for us to do stuff together without our children and it’s so nice to do stuff with them.

So on Saturday, I took everyone out to Baskin Robbins. I got the idea because I remembered that you got an email coupon for a free cone. When we got there, we noticed that the coupon was expired. Oh, well. We still each got an ice cream.


Day 51: Family Outing

November 19, 2011

I left work around 2 PM yesterday so I could watch the kids for you for a few hours while you got some rest. When I got home, you said that though you wanted some rest, you’d much rather hang out with everyone. So, we all went to the zoo. While at the zoo, our two-year-old daughter told us she didn’t want to go in the lion’s cage because then she’d just be bones. Our trip to the zoo worked out well as my act of love: we all enjoyed our time together, you told me you appreciated that I left work early to be with the family, and none of us came back as just bones. I did, however, need to work through the evening to make up for leaving work early.
