Good morning, it is Tuesday.
For the last month Hansen has been asking me to take him to McDonald's on Monday because the promotion around here is that Monday is McCafe day. Free small McCafe drinks to anyone who wants one. Nearly a month has gone by and just have not been to McDonald's. Yesterday Preston was at a friend's house, so after Hansen's and Lillian's piano lesson, I took them to McDonald's for a free McCafe and some ice-cream (Hansen wanted hot apple pies, Lillie and I had an ice-cream sundae) for a treat. This picture has Hansen looking kind of glum...probably because I am making him pause and take a picture. Really, this free drink has been a month in the making and I am sure he is so happy inside that he just has no energy left to even make his mouth curve upwards in a smile! Actually knowing Hansen, he may actually be kind of frustrated at the moment this picture was taken because he is realizing that his #$%& Dad has made him miss the last several weeks of free McCafe's and he now knows what he has been missing. The kid loves his coffee.
I sent the photo of Hansen and his free McCafe to Maren while she was at work via picture message. She was very jealous...so jealous that she offered to go to the pool with me and the kids in the evening with the idea that we could stop on the way home and buy her a McCafe! It worked! The promotion, the trip to the pool, and the McCafe for Maren.
