Ice Cream All Day Long

Today was quite an adventure. It started with a three hour drive to what I thought was possibly North Carolina. We were following Twist and her wee ones and I'm quite sure we had to switch from the EZ pass to the Sunpass.

We finally arrived in a cute little town where Twist announced to everyone that they could get ice cream all day long. As many times as they wanted to. They could choose to eat only ice cream if that was what they were feeling today. So we sat down in the morning to their first cone. I made friends with a lovely older couple that later Twist completely scared off by scolding the woman for even mentioning that the dead bat could be carrying disease. Whatever.

We walked through the town and I took a million pictures. Twist singing opera. Saige doing handstands. Our adorable kids and whatever else made us smile...

(Chase made me post this)

Then we went to the coolest place eva. I should have known it was going to be fun when while following Twist in her car she came to a three way intersection in the middle of no where and started doing donuts. I followed her. She finally stopped after we had made about ten passes, she looked out the window and said, "See if you can catch me," and took off like the proverbial bat out of hell.

After she did ninety through a slow zone we arrived at Nervous Nellies Jams and Jellies. If the name isn't enough to make you love it the fact that her artist husband has make an entire enchanted forest out of junk. It was so much fun.

I took 225 pictures. This could go on and on. I just put some favorites so my kids could remember their holiday in Maine with the Auntie Twistavarkski. There is nothing remotely odd about any of it.

Not even on the car ride to lunch when Chase said, "I don't trust you and Kirsten." I don't get that at all...
