The story of the chocolate face...

On Friday night Justin went to sleep coughing so hard that I wasn't sure he was actually going to 'sleep' that night, or 'cough' himself to sleep.
He finally was able to get himself to sleep (thankfully).
Saturday morning he wakes up and he can't catch his breath. It's a seal like bark. I take him to the doctor and they gave me a few prescriptions for croup.
The meds luckily work. We had a coupon for a gift card if we took in a new Target pharmacy prescription so we were happy to get that.
After dinner Joe realizes we have none of Joe's ice cream cones - so we take a special trip to Target because we still have our $10 gift card to spend in order to get ice cream. No, I am not kidding.
They have these mini ice cream cones by Blue Bell Ice cream - which is super famous in Texas. The reason we love these is at the very bottom of the cone there is sometimes a little bit of chocolate. Sometimes there is a LOT of chocolate at the bottom of these cones. After dinner we will all get one of these cones, eat it all until the bottom of the cone and whoever gets a lot of chocolate will brag about it to everyone else at the table. 
Well since we bought these at Target that evening, Joe couldn't even wait to get home. He asked that I open the cones in the car and distribute them to everyone.
So Joey, Justin, myself and Joe enjoyed our Blue Bell mini ice cream cones on the way home from Target...
And this is what Justin looked like when I went to get him out of the car....
Very happy and chocolatey!

Awww :) What fun!

It's always nice to venture off the routine, sometimes. It looks like this was one of those times!
