Ice Cream Truck...

Kate's first encounter with the Ice Cream Truck...

It started when I heard the music playing from the speakers. I couldn't really contain myself, i've heard it several times before strolling the neighborhood, but HAD restrained my inner child from running out and after it... but that night i was craving an ice cold frozen treat, anything really, plus, i was craving to see the eyes of a little girl, MY little girl, light up with excitement when we ran to the truck to pick out what looked appealing to us. It brought back several memories from my childhood in Miami, living just 5 houses down form my cousins... We were addicted to playing outside and riding bikes all around our neighborhood. And then hearing the lovely sound of the ice cream truck and racing home to get some money. I can still remember that excitement and the thrill of picking out whatever i wanted! It may sound silly, but that's the kind of kid i was. I see alot of me in Kate... And when i told her to pick out whatever she wanted, she was just too excited to decide. She pointed to everything. We finally decided on The jolly rancher big stick... It. Was. Delicious. This will certainly not be our last encounter with the Ice Cream Truck... i can't wait to taste what we pick next!

Isn't it the best to share your childhood memory of the ice cream truck and now Katie will have that memory as well! Plus her choice looks very yummy indeed! Love you all. Aunt Linda xoxoxo
