Old School

This rolled down my street last week and I don't know who got more excited - me or the boys! They had never seen an ice cream truck before. Can you believe it? Oh my gosh, when I was little we got treats from the ice cream truck at least once a week. You know... the paper cones filled with blue ice cream that had a bubblegum ball at the bottom. Ohhhh... I die. Memories.


The options have changed slightly, but the music/jingle remains the same.


Jude got Batman - with gumball eyes! Oh yeah.


Liam got Scooby - with gumball eyes. Scooby was chocolate. Very chocolate. And guess what? That chocolate stains. Really bad.  He got this stuff all over his face. And now he looks like this...

I'm happy to report that after a nice long bath all the chocolate stains are gone. Man, I love a good ice cream truck stop on a hot summer Fall night. What are some of your favorite childhood memories? Gumball ice cream? Anyone? xo

  2. The milkman. Trusted, kindhearted, punctual. An old milk box still brings memories of running out to great him and get our weekly supply of milk products!
    Loved the ice cream truck too :)
