Summer Treats Keeping Us Cool | Mommy and Me Monday | 388th ed


post sponsored by RaceTrac

We’ve got one week until school starts for my big three! ONE WEEK! I think we’ve finally recovered from vacation (all of the suitcases are put away), and we’ve spent some good family time. Sunday after a water day for the kids at church, we headed home and changed and went out for lunch. Then, it was time for a cool tasty treat.

With RacTrac’s Swirl World $0.69 cones, I knew the 6 of us would be under $5 for a cool treat. And, because there is a RaceTrac right by our house (we actually passed two of them), it made even more sense to stop.

Of course, we have to try the flavors with the sample cups to make sure we get just the right flavor. And, then, there were toppings (I wasn’t sure we could add toppings to the cones, but they store employees said we could).

Everybody grabbed a cone with their favorite flavor, and made their way over to a booth to enjoy it. I’m so glad they have sorbet and other non-dairy flavors so I can enjoy some, too. Mr. Serious was nice enough to take a picture, but we even treated him to a cone, too.

Six people, six different cones and everybody got what they wanted.

After a few licks, the girls started asking what color their tongues were and sticking them out.
