Puppy pillows and birthday boys

Saturday morning we left our sleeping teenagers at home in their beds and went to our favorite local breakfast place because we're sneaky like that sometimes :)

And this guy is a goof...

We had a special birthday boy to celebrate today!  Jaden turned 9, which is so hard to believe.  Time really does go by fast.  The saying "the days are long but the years are short" is really true, with children and grandchildren too.

I think they need a larger bonfire area.  It was a cool day and sitting by a fire looked so inviting, but everytime we went by the chairs other people were sitting in them.  So not fair.

We enjoyed some yummy apple and cherry strudels...and some special memories :)

Well, hello there!

Sunday was filled with church, warm blankets, and naps.  It is so sweet how much she loves Kyle's basketball pillow...or is it Nick's?  I can't remember :)

Icecream, coffee, 80's music and black lights

What do all these things have in common?  A fun weekend!

It was a beautiful Saturday, our teenagers were both working, so it was the perfect recipe for a date day!  Vince and I had lunch at Acoustic (of which I took no pictures - gah!).  After that we were in the mood for some coffee and icecream, so we decided to take a little road trip.  Rushford is a cute little town with big character.  It sits in a bowl, a valley surrounded by bluffs, so there is beautiful scenery wherever you look.

You can't see it in the picture, but on the side of the hill it says Rushford spelled out in white rock...just like we have in Rollingstone.

I had heard great things about the icecream here over the years, so we decided to give it a try.  They did NOT disappoint!

All the rumors are true...their icecream is delish!

We both want to come back sometime and try their pizza because I've heard good things about that too.  

They said nothing about unattended husbands?!

Downtown Rushford is also home to one of my favorite local coffee shops... 

I've been here a couple times before, but this was Vince's first time.  It's worth the drive :)

Vince, Trevor, Hope and I went to MOA!  It was great having Trev with us, those days don't happen very often anymore with our busy schedules.  

We started the day off at my favorite MOA restaurant...Johnny Rockets!

Trevor's big idea was the hit of the light minigolf!

I think I was the most excited of all of us about the black light effect :)  
I kept saying "I love my shoes!! and kept making everyone look at them.

80's music + 80's theme'd artwork + this girl = SO MUCH FUN!
