Thankfully, the Blue Bell tour was lots of fun. I was a little worried about the kids getting bored hearing about how to ice cream is made. They loved it. We saw all the machines in operation, which was pretty cool. We saw how the 1/2 gallon and pint containers are filled, ice cream sandwiches being made, ice cream cones being filled, and Popsicles being made. The factory is so clean. My favorite little fun fact was it takes milk from 60,000 cows to produce a day's worth of ice cream! Holy cow!!!
After the tour, you get free ice cream. I was expecting a little scoop of vanilla. Much to my surprise and total happiness that was not the case. There were 16 flavors to pick from and it was not a small serving. I had red velvet and it was very yummy!
|I was laughing hysterically because the hat kept blowing off my head. My head was too big for it.|
|The hat fits Kelsey's little peanut head, but not me!|
|yeah, that was the pathetic field of bluebonnets|
|Cool building remains|
|Cool trees for climbing and the kids did lots of that|
(no one seemed to be hurt). Still, we had a yummy lunch. The boys liked the waitresses in poodle skirts and everyone liked the jukebox. All the kids had hot dogs...some of the largest hot dogs ever.
Of course, I had to take a picture before we left and not one child could see. I think this picture is too funny!
Today was so fun...full of great adventures and fun memories. I can't wait to see what we do tomorrow!
