ICE CREAM SAFARI


Technically this isn't a great picture but I wanted to show how we celebrated with our son and his family on his birthday.
I shot some of the crowd getting ice cream at the Sacramento Zoo. For a fee we got entrance into a private event which Baskin Robbins Ice Cream makers was a sponser. There were little booths like this one all over the zoo with Free, all you can eat bowls or cones of every flavor of ice cream imaginable. They also made sundaes and had free Coke products too.
I think we are all "oinking" a bit after making pigs of ourselves. It was such a fun afternoon and very warm. It made the ice cream slide down easier too.
Yummmmmm.......
Thank you for all the nice wishes for First Born. He says a big thank you too.

I used to work at a facility that made Baskin&Robbins ice cream, could buy damaged or undeliverable product for a nice price. Used to be able to buy a 3 gallon tub for $9, ate a lot of ice cream then. Chocolate peanut butter is my favorite.

Well, that's a huge birthday party. Did he think everyone who was there came to celebrate his special day? I hope you told him that.

A photo doesn't have to be technically great for you to show something such as the ice cream give away.
Looked like a great event, but now you have to miss 6 meals to lose the weight gain.

Congratulations to the first born and his parents, who has given so good possibilities to become such a good person, it demands loving parents and a lot of things, which belong to love each other.
Ice-cream party - It must have been the grown-up`s celebration, where children get on well too :)
Good Tuesday to you!

Free ice cream should have been a big hit. I like the idea of visiting the zoo too.
