The Best Ice Cream in the Country

Iwas in heaven today. My friend Robyn told me about an open house event at the Blue Bell Creamery in Broken Arrow. Anyone who knows me at all knows that is somewhere I had to be. We loaded up and headed out there this morning. All you can eat ice cream for $4 - and the kids got in for free!!! They had all sorts of games and jupiter jumps for the kids, and lots of Blue Bell treats for me. There was one place that had two lines - one had four flavors of ice cream and the other had all the Blue Bell treats on a stick or a cone. Then there were all these other lines that each had 5 or 6 flavors. You just picked a line and got a scoop.



Here is a Blue Bell jupiter jump




This was our first trip through the line...

Second trip...


Third trip...

It seems like we made another trip, but I don't have any more pictures!

Here are my girls enjoying their treats. It was a bit of a struggle for Caroline. She does not like to get her hands or her clothes wet or dirty. It was sprinkling on us and she had popsicle all over her hands and her clothes. She toughed it out and stuck with the popsicles.

They had this wooden cow there that you could practice milking. The girls had a good time with this.



And I guess you can't eat the best ice cream in the country without getting on a tractor? I don't know. They had a whole bunch of these really old tractors there that the girls has a lot of fun climbing on.



This was Blue Bell's annual Taste of Summer. I will definitely be there next year! I am thinking about ditching the kids though. I could sure eat a lot more ice cream if we did not have to take time out for jupiter jumps!

That is funny that you would say that. I actually did pull my phone out at one point with every intention of calling you. It is an annual event - you may have to plan a trip next year. Lots of fun!
