Day 997 – Thankful for Couch Time and an Old School Flavor of Summer

The boys are outside playing and Becky and I are totally chilling on the couch. To be honest, I am pretty sure she’s asleep already, but that totally cool after the long week she’s had. It has been a while since we’ve had the opportunity to just snuggle on the couch and I’m thankful for these peaceful moments.

Earlier this evening we picked up ice cream and Becky’s choice took me way back to being a kid. Every single time I have a taste of butter pecan ice cream I immediately am reminded of summer evenings at my Grandma and Grandpa’s house. Each night we were there would end with ice cream and that flavor was the one that we could always count on having (unless they took us to DQ). All it took was one bite of Becky’s ice cream and I was ready to turn on the Brewers game, sit in the screen porch, spend time with my grandparents, and then grab a mason jar and fill it with the lightning bugs I was about to chase. All that from one quick taste of butter pecan!

Pardon me while I cut this short and go back to chillaxing on the couch with Becky … who totally is sleeping now 😉
