Who doesn’t love ice cream? My friend Kylie, from Australia, that’s who. This woman does not like: coffee, ice cream or chocolate. For all I know, she eats seafood and mushrooms too. *shudder* Yet we’re still friends. That right there should prove how open-minded and tolerant I am.
She does have cute kids…and that earns her a few dozen Bonus Points right there. I actually had to explain the concept of Bonus Points to Kylie’s girls. They listened with rapt attention as I handed out Bonus Points to my own children: 3 points for doing their chores, 5 points for helping others. 17 points for bringing me coffee. Tilly explained that once they reached 100 points I double their allowance (and since their allowance is $0, this works in my favor). I think the girls were completely sold, until they saw my children losing points for things like socks left on the floor and listening to Taylor Swift.
The last day Kylie was here with her kids, we took them to Edaleen Dairy in Lynden. I love to support local businesses when I get the chance and I also love to purchase $0.75 ice cream cones. It’s win-win.
I would like to personally thank you Carolynn for introducing my children to the concept of buying extra scoops of ice cream with their own money. That made my trip to Edaleen Dairy all that more…special. Since there is nothing complicated about ordering ice cream for eight or nine kids, I was hoping for a bit of excitement.
Apollo actually ate a fair amount of ice cream. Not his whole scoop by any means, but last time we came here he had two or three licks and then was finished.
One of those is mine…mocha chip. Not bad at all, but not as good as our Mocha Pretzel Ice Cream either!Despite it all, Kylie chose this Coke can. Amazing. She can spend a week with my family and still consider me a Star. Or friend. Or something like that.
