Again, Saturday, March 7, 2009
It was a day of firsts. After Molly's soccer game we had a quick lunch, headed over to a cool store called Wee Monsters and bought a new swing set for the kids. The first one we had, that Jeff built (with a little help from family) didn't quite survive the move. Yes, we paid to have it moved, and what a waste of cash. It's just not holding up. SO, we vowed that IF there was any money leftover from Jeff's severence package last year, we would buy the kids (namely Camden) a new swingset to enjoy the next . . . hopefully, MANY years!! And this time around, it comes with INSTALLATION!! Jeff strongly believed that hazing of a new father (i.e. assembling a big-ass swing set) should only be mandatory once. Perhaps, he should have quit having children if this was his belief, but really, this Wee Monsters is a local company and they INCLUDE installation in there price . . . or at least that's what they tell you! HA!
ANYHOW, this post isn't about the swingset . . . i'll post on the 18th about that (after it's installed). This is about Camden's FIRST ICE CREAM CONE!! Khaki said she'd treat everyone to Bruster's to celebrate Molly's first soccer game and our new purchase, and really, we all know the McCreary family doesn't have to be talked into ice cream, so off we went. At Bruster's (in case any one out there is loser enough to have never been) they give anyone under a certain height a free "baby cone." Well, Camden got his first --- thin mint ice cream. Yes, it is girl scout cookies crushed up in Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. That's all i'll say. The pictures say the rest!
A little taste . . .
Really enjoying it . . .
Enjoying Molly's tossed-aside cone . . .
And, really, does anyone else think this last one might say, "umm, why in the heck are ya'll snapping all these pictures of me? But, i could use a napkin here!!!"
If you're ever going for ice cream, Camden would love to be invited along!
