Free Ice Cream!

I needed to go to Publix on Friday to pick up a few of their sale items this week (including the Emerald Cinnamon Roast almonds - my new favorite snack) and had planned on taking all the kids with me so they could have a cookie. I happened to be reading the paper online that morning and saw that Blue Bell would be there handing out free samples from 1 to 5 PM so that's exactly when we planned our shopping trip! I fed the kids lunch and we did some coloring for a little bit, then loaded up in the van a few minutes before 1:00.

Even though it was miserably hot outside, the people in the ice cream truck were extremely jovial and we all got to sample some yummy Blue Bell vanilla ice cream... so delicious! They also gave the kids hats and momma got some $1.00 off coupons! What a fun treat for a Friday afternoon!
I didn't have my camera, so I snapped this with my phone. I love how all the kids are smiling except Jackson who is focused only on his ice cream. He gets it from me.
