An Ice Cream Trip

We went for fish-n-chips at a new spot called the Clam Castle. It's almost across the street from Lenny and Joe's, where we usually go. Both mom and dad said that the Clam Castle was okay but that Lenny and Joe's is still much better! We really don't care where they go as long as we get a couple of French fries and maybe a tidbit of fish!

After the Clam Castle, we headed to Durham for ice cream!We didn't forget our M&M purse that Jazzi sent us and mom did remember to pack our bandanas in there! Somehow our ice cream tasted better in our pretty bandanas!Lately, my favorite part of ice cream is the cone bottom. Well, the cone was there in mom's fingers but I sorta snatched it out and with the camera's slow speed we sorta missed the cone in the picture! hahaHey, you got a bigger portion of ice cream than I did, Mitch!Thanks, dad! You aren't as stingy with the ice cream as mom is! Mom is always telling me that I'm not supposed to have ice cream anymore because of my kidneys so it's more Aire that I'm eating than ice cream!I got to lick the cup clean too! More Aire here too!
Oh well - it's the thought that counts, right?!So until next time..............

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Uh-oh, parental Unit says she must now run out and do take-out Fish and Chips from a local pub-she loves F&C with lots of tarter sauce and ketchup! Think I'll get any? Maybe a half of a fry before she inhales.

Looks like you had such a fun trip!

Your buddy,

Martha and Bailey said...

That ice cream looked yummy even if you had a lot of 'aire'.
Our mum says that will mean fewer calories which apparently is good.
Do you know what calories are?

Oh I love your painting header as much as I love your ice cream.
The ice cream cone that you sent me is still in one piece and I'm still playing with it but Mr. Green Frog is about crossing the bridge, hic hic!
And Happy Belated Mother's Day to your great Mom, lets kick my mom's behind for being so behind blogging, love y'all.

Stardust said...

I LOVE icecream! I just snacked on one yesterday! Heheheh.

The stolen cone picture made me laugh and laugh. You kids are really. Oh yes Maggie, a little is good and too much of everything is sometimes bad. So, do watch on your diet. =) Bless your kidneys...

Petsitgal said...

Looks like you guys really enjoyed your ice cream. We have a place called King Kone in NH that actually stuffs dog bones in the bottom of the ice cream cone. Spring time is so much fun.

Wyatt said...

Yumm-O! Have you ever had the dog ice cream? I think it's called Frosty Paws. Of course, it's not as good as the real deal!

OK. Let's get serious. First of all. We are trying our darndest to catch up. And where do we start but here. Reading about fish and chips and ice cream. We've decided we need at least five days in your neck of the woods to try all your favorite eating places. So. We're here to ask you. Be thinking about a prioritized list of the best places to visit. And we'll watch Moma and our NinaGirl get fat. (hahaha!)

Seriously. We are hoping to stop by and see ya (knowing it's gonna be a busy busy time for you ... don't want to interfere) on our way from NYC to Boston. On (probably) Friday July 30. Do you think it might work? Even for a bit? (We're not quite sure just where to sniff you out. Are ya on the way?)

Just reading your blog makes us feel like we already know ya. And you make us hungry.

We'd better move on now...

Your wirey pals
Jake and Fergi (and Family of course)
