Another Jammy Run!

We took another Jammy Run last week! This time, instead of Sonic we hit Dairy Queen. And instead of JUST ice cream, we also got a late dinner. Mmmm... Chicken Strip Baskets and Blizzards. It doesn't get any better than that!

Don't know what a Jammy Run is? It's simple. Let the kids get their jammies on and climb into bed. After they've been there 5-10 minutes, or I guess you could do it before they get in bed (but what fun is that?), mom and dad start banging on pots and pans while yelling 'JAMMY RUN'! The first time you're kids will look at you like you're crazy, but I promise, each time after that they'll all come running as excited as they can be.

Then, everyone climbs in the car in their jammies and heads to Sonic for ice cream! It's so much fun and creates such wonderful memories for the whole family. Try it, I promise you won't regret it!

Definitely more fun once they've been in bed for a little while-- and so long as I haven't run out of steam before getting them back up again. :-)
You are such a fun mommy!

Oh how I love this idea! We don't have a Sonic nearby, but we have a Dairy Queen just around the corner. My kids would LOVE this! I love to make these kinds of memories with them. Thank you so much for this idea!
