FFF: Fun in the Sun (the Ice Cream Truck!!)


This picture is from earlier this month. Joey and I were hanging out back playing in his sandbox when we heard music. I told him it was the ice cream truck and he immediately wanted to see it, so I told him we could go out front and look. I didn't expect it to come down our street because it's a dead end and they usually don't bother. Wouldn't you know - it was turning around right in front of our house. We ran after him and flagged him down and then I had to convince Joey to come inside with me to get money (the ice cream man was actually a little scary looking and I didn't want to leave him out there alone LOL!) Anyway, Joey had this supercool Spiderman ice cream bar and I had a Push-up (hey -did you know they are only 90 calories?!) That's one of the fringe benefits of being a mom - a 38 year old should normally fight off the urge to chase down the ice cream truck, but with a 3 year old in tow it becomes acceptable behavior.

Look how proud Joey is of his ice cream! Why is it most Ice Cream Truck drivers are a little scarry looking in one way or the other? Happy Friday!

We don't have an ice cream truck here and I totally miss it! You're right, with kids you have an excuse to flag it down! His spiderman popsicle looks really good. He's such a cutie!

I am so excited for the ice cream truck this year! I will defintely need a push up pop! :) Running after the ice cream truck with a 3 year old is a wonderful thing because you get ice cream for a reward! :)

Funny! We haven't done the ice cream truck thing yet this year. I'm a fan of the fudge pops which are also a low cal/low fat option. Yummy!!!
