Baskin Robbins opened in the shopping center just up the road from us a few weeks ago. On opening day the crowds were crazy! It was like people had never seen ice cream before. Of course I’m sure it helped that they had bounce houses set up, a cake walk, the local radio station was there on a live broadcast – it was insane! We didn’t go anywhere near it that day. But, a little while later, Baskin Robbins was our Groupon deal for the day. Oh yeah, I love Groupons and we all love ice cream. MUST BUY GROUPON!!! I did and then made the mistake of mentioning that I did so to Lael. Oh my goodness, over the next 3-4 days she must have asked me 29 dozen times if we could go get ice cream. Finally, we carved out some time go and did it. When we arrived, it was deserted, which was perfect since Lael seemed determined to taste every single flavor. I don’t know how many they have now, I know it used to be 31, but it sure seemed like more than that! She finally decided on vanilla! Plain vanilla, but I think she had already noticed the sprinkles encrusted cone and figured she might be more likely to get the cone if she chose a plain vanilla ice cream. Caeden surprised me with his choice – mint chocolate chip. Me, gotta be chocolate! YUM!
