I was watching a show on KBYU the other night on ice cream. Not only did it make me salivate, it made me yearn to make memories! It basically was just a documentary on several different ice cream places around the U.S. and how the owners came to make ice-cream and why their shops brought in all the customers. We even went to Ben and Jerry's! People who work there get 3 pints a day! No wonder they looked well-fed, especially Ben. Anyway, ice-cream was equated to happiness, good memories, and good life.
Growing up, we got ice cream cones several times a year. I would even say once a month, but maybe my memory is being overly generous? We would go through the drive-thru at McD's for a cone. Chocolate Vanilla twist cone was my preference. Very regrettably, McD's doesn't make chocolate any more, those losers. I don't believe in vanilla.
After viewing the show, I vowed to take the kids for ice cream cones more often so they could have those endorphins in their mouth sparked more often and also so they can think I'm the best mom. Childhood memories are at stake here! I just need to find a place to go get good ice cream cones.
Do you guys have a place you go with your family for special treats? Do you believe in this being a good family bonding experience?
