Best Soft Serve On The Planet & Swap Answers
I love summer. I love friends that invite me up to their homes last minute (because I'm a spur of the moment kind-of gal). What I don't love is using the wrong level SPF on my kids and having my one daughter & myself looking red as lobsters. No, I don't love that. Poor thing. I've decided, as soon as I get back from our real vacation next week, that I'm buying SPF fabric and creating some clothes for us. Our pale white skin just burns and burns and burns. No fun.
Before the sunburn though we had a good time up in the Ossipee Lake Region of New Hampshire. We went out for ice cream. Yumm-o. What is better than an ice cream shop right on the highway? According to their signage - this shop has the best soft serve on the planet. I don't know if it was the best though - I had moose tracks & it was extremely yummy hard ice cream. Photographer for these photos - my six-year-old.
And - what did the Mallory & Jace receive in their swap? A lot of stuff! But, the photos in my other post were of a set of matching cards and a gathering apron. Will have to post those photos separately - am in the midst of doing much laundry, cleaning the house, contacting our house / dog / fish sitter, making a packing list and trying to find toys to 'sneak' into the car so the kids don't know they have fun new stuff waiting for them. Ah - to be a mom prepping for a vacation.
Edited to add: Okay - Sherry has posted way better pictures of the stuff I sent her kids than I took. Visit her blog to see the stash and the apron.
