Last week we went to Cold Stone with a group of friends. My friend Julie used to work there and she scheduled us for a tour. It's been on the calendar a while, so we had really been looking forward to it! They schedule their tours for 10:30 in the morning because they open at 11. It was a fun treat to start the day off with a scoop of ice cream. Still - Charlie was slightly grouchy and unwillingly to smile before we went in (above pic). That quickly changed...
After the tour of the freezer and the ice cream machine each kid was invited to create their own treat. Here is Charlie checking out all of the flavors trying to find a "red one."
Then he got to choose a topping and mix it up. He chose pink strawberry ice cream with sprinkles.
He was definitely one happy guy and we enjoyed eating our ice cream together with our friends after the tour. What a perfect summer treat!
