Scoops Ice Cream

I'm back!!! Seattle was good, but I'm glad to be back home :)

I have a few posts in the works, but here's the first one: Scoops Ice Cream! On the way from Ocean Shores, Washington to Seattle, Anna and I made a stop at a little ice cream store called Scoops somewhere in Aberdeen, Washington.

You see, I'm not used to long road trips, and begged Anna to stop from time to time. This was an adorably old-fashioned ice cream parlor. I loved the red and blue colors, the old milkshake machines and the many flavors you could choose.

I chose the kid-sized portion of Mt. Blackberry Revel in a waffle cone. The vanilla ice cream was rich and creamy, and the blackberries added a bit of tartness. LOVED it! Anna had a scoop of Espresso Madness: I liked my choice better.

Stay tuned for potato/mushroom/onion potstickers and lunch with my brother posts.

Can't wait to catch up with all of you!

I'm not great with long journeys either. They make me really cranky. Nothing helps get rid of crankiness than some good ice cream though. Glad u r back :)

Welcome back! The ice cream parlor sounds very cute! I was wishing I took Hannah out for ice-cream today instead of a bakery. The ice-cream would have been so much nicer on this hot day!
