Should have known it was too good to be true. I suggested a family walk yesterday (so gorgeous, right?) with the final destination being an ice cream store. Great mile and a half walk there, chill out--eat ice cream and walk the mile and a half home. Everybody went...the kid, the dog and the parents.
Except once we got to the ice cream shop, we could not buy any ice cream. Apparently the machines had been worked too hard throughout the day and didn't have any ice cream left for us! All we got was water for the dog. So, we walked back home, got in the car and drove to another ice cream shop for a sweet treat that we ate exhaustedly in the car.
