No pictures… it was all I could do to get us out the door:) I’m pretty pleased with myself, though. I’ve absolutely minimized all trips out with just me and Analise, because it’s so hard to get her in and out of the car with my back aching so badly. But this was worth it:) There wasn’t even a wait, and I enjoyed a Dublin Mudslide (irish cream ice cream with coffee/fudge swirls) cone, and Analise had a cup of Sweet Cream & Cookies.
We were lucky enough to get a phone call from Brian’s parents inviting us out to dinner… and free ice cream! I think we made the most of the “deal of the day”. I tried Coffee, Coffee, Buzz, Buzz, but it wasn’t as good as Dublin Mudslide. Analise was ice cream-ed out, and Grandpa had to finish her Sweet Cream & Cookies.
Corrie and I weren’t able to get over there either so dont feel too bad Brian. Pretty sweet that Kristine and Analise got to go twice. You are going to have to work on that little girl, though. Who gets tired of ICE CREAM!!!!!
