Pajama Ride!

The Hubs and I attended a little marriage conference today (Marriage Matters Iowa: Hitched & Happy; we recommend it). One of the things they suggested for having a good marriage is to have fun together. One of those things that obviously makes sense, but sometimes doesn’t happen in the busy lives we have. The couple leading the discussion gave some creative ideas for fun dates, some of them including the whole family.
We think we’ll have to try their suggestion of Pajama Ride. Here’s what you do: Have the kiddos get ready for bed as usual. When the kids are just about asleep in their beds, barge in the room and make a big ruckos saying, “Pajama ride!” Then, load the kids in the car and drive somewhere, like an ice cream place.
Sounds fun to me!
Here’s the kicker: The couple who shared this have two kids in college and one about to finish high school. Recently, the parents were in bed and almost asleep when … you guessed it … the kids barged into their room, yelling “Pajama ride!” The kids took the parents out for ice cream.
How fun is that?
