Ice Cream and The Pool.....

It seems like most of our summer days involve both of these at some point. It is still very hot here almost to where I am used to seeing 100 degrees at some point during the day whether in my car or on a bank sign. We cannot play outside or go on walks. I guess we could at night, but I normally go to the gym in the morning. I think we've almost visited all the city pools in our area. We have our favorites and all of them are very fun. The girls are becoming little fish and even Ellie is overcoming her fears of the water. Anna is crazy and loves the water. I hope to get a video of her soon in the water. We bought her some sort of floatation thing that is amazing. It is a little shirt that comes half way down with an tube going around her. It is so nice cause I don't have to hold on to her the whole time. We always see people we know at the pool which is fun or I meet my play group girls there. I love to get ice cream in the summer so I thought I'd give you a list of our faves.....
#1- Braum's:it is mainly only in the south (OK, AR, TX).... I love a single dip sundae of german chocolate ice cream with caramel topping and pecans! It is super cheap and where we go the most. We can also buy our milk there so that is nice since we are always almost out!
#2 TCBY: White chocolate mousse in a cone and Mike loves the raspberry sorbet. Wednesday is 99 cent cone day.
#3 McDonald's : Ice Cream is the only thing we get there. However, they have a fun play area and I can get a sundae for $1 while the girls play.
#4 DQ: Dipped cone yummmyyyy.
#5 Cold Stone: Mike's favorite, but I don't like to pay $4 for a dip of ice cream. We only go there on a date.

What are your favorites? I hope you are enjoying this last day of July.....

I love ice cream too! I love a local place here called Ray's, they have great vanilla chocolate swirl. Or a good bowl of vanilla with peanuts and chocolate syrup at home...or cookie dough anywhere!

how fun!!! loved your list... my FAVORITE is BLUE BELL ice cream!!! and i KNOW you have an abundance of it in TX!!!! i found it at some upscale piggly wiggly at the beach... and brought 2 half gallons home in the cooler. they have one called carolina cobbler... yum-o!!!! and since kinston does not have ANY ice cream places (i mean really... the DQ just closed down! grrrr...) so, my next fav is where we just went at the beach... Calabash Creamery! homemade peach, delicious coffee flavored ice cream, and abby's favorite was fresh strawberry!

Thanks for the tip this past week on the 99 cent TBCY Wednesday! We went and LOVED IT!! I got a scoop of Blueberries and Cream and it was delish...my favorite yet from there! Some friends told me that the ice cream place by the new dollar store and Jasons Deli is really good...we'll have to go sometime and check it out! :)
