Ice Cream!!!!!!!!!!!

Dad suggested that we go out for ice cream last night after our oonie dinner! It's not hot here at all but mom was up for an outing!
Mitch has never ridden in dad's truck before. I think I told you all that dad has custom outfitted his back seat just for me. It's like a big playpen and I love it this way! He covered a piece of plywood with carpeting so we don't have to worry about falling out of a seat and there's lot of room for toys and blankets and even to lay down and sleep!
Mom grabbed my special red ice cream spoon and one for Mitch and off we went. I had no problem jumping into dad's truck but Mitch needed some help. His legs are still too short for such a high jump! He wasn't sure at first if he really liked this truck stuff. He was clinging to me like velcro. He looked pretty nervous about this whole adventure.

It only takes us about 10 minutes to drive to Durham (next town over) to the ice cream stand. Mitch started to relax about half way there. Once we arrived, dad asked mom what kind of ice cream she wanted. She always chooses frozen vanilla yogurt so she can share with us! Dad ended up with a raspberry chocolate chip and boy did it ever look yummy! Mom said that we couldn't have any of that! What a meany!
Mitch seemed to come to life when he saw people eating! hehehehe - that's my brother!
See Mitch - here comes dad with our ice cream! Wait till you taste it - you'll be begging for these trips every single night!
Here's Mitch getting his first lick of frozen yogurt. He had no problem deciding if he liked it or not!Now it's my turn!This is the BEST part about summer and heat - the ice cream! mmmmmmmmmmmmm

On the way home mom turned around to see how Mitch was doin' and he had this doofus look on his face. Do you think maybe it's a brain freeze? hehehehehe

I sure hope another trip to the ice cream stand will happen soon! That was fun and it was a great idea dad! Thanks!

Until next time................

Love ya lots,

Hi Maggie,
We have met at the Pawty. My human is in love with Airedales after she see so many of your kind at the pawty. She keep saying that you guys has got cute teddy face.

I am so jealous. I hope that she will not abandon me to get an Airedales as my house is strictly a 1 dog only home (Rules set by my human parents.)

Can I link you to my blog so that I can learn from you guy on how to behave like an Airedale and so my human will love be more?

Nazila Merati said...

Yummers. Maybe I can convince my moms to take me out for some ice cream.

I'm thinking french vanilla, no nuts, no sauce.

I think its so cool you have your own spoon too!

brain freezes rule!

Suki & Joey said...

I like Mitch's doofus face - very funny! Heehee!

Hey Maggie, I didn't see Mitch at the pawty. Is he still too young to type? ;)

Puggy kisses

jaffeboy said...

It looks yummilicious!!!!

I love yogurt anytime!

Mitch is a lucky chap. I got my first taste of yogurt only when I was 6mths old!!!

Luckie Girl said...

Hey Maggie,
Oh oh..ice cream = brain freeze!! Your dad's really nice to suggest going out just to get ice cream. I never had ice cream before but Mom gives me ice cubes to cool me down. hehe

Linda said...

Oooooh, raspberry chocolate chip, you are making our Mama drool! We get to eat ice cream at Dairy Queen out of a big red spoon too. Mama likes to get caramel shakes when we go so we can have some. Papa ALWAYS has a chocolate shake, so we can't eat any of his, not fair. Mitch does look kinda doofus in the picture, hehehehe! Hope you get some warm weather soon. It's been way hot here now.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Maggie,
I love yoghurt but not ice-cream (I don't know why either..).. Mitch looks so cute!!

Amber-Mae said...

Haha, Mitch looks like he got a brain freeze. I don like ice cream that much now that I'm older. I'm more mature & I don eat kiddo ice creams anymore but my sista Chloe loves it! Hehe!

Love licks,

I so LOVE truck rides with Daddy! I am smaller than you so I sneak out of the back and stand on the arm rest in the front so I can navigate.

Emily and Ike said...

MMMMM! Lucky you! I get Frosty Paws from the ice cream shop down the street and I get to lick the bowls and thats the best because they make their own ice cream and it was voted the best ice cream in the nation!

Oh man, I love trips to the ice cream shop, they rock! I hope Mitch's brain unthawed ok, hehehe, that happens to me too sometimes.......must be a guy thing!


Billy (YES Casanova!!!) said...

Mitch's picture is priceless! I like ice cream too, vanilla is my choice since I can't have chocolate!!

BIG hugs from Billy Boo:)

Joe Stains said...

mitch's doofus face is SO cute, not like tanner.

You guys are so lucky to be able to go get some yummy ice creams and cold yogurt. Mom needs to find a place like that to take us since we live in the desert!

Liberty Doo Dah said...

Lucky you all!
Last summer, mum took me to get ice cream and guess what?! The guy at the counter just GAVE me a "pup cup" for FREE!! That was back in Texas though....
PS: Mitch looks like he's deciding on whether or not to like the truck or not. After having the ice cream, I think he changed his mind! LOL!

Bogart H. Devil said...

Aw, the look on Mitch's face is adorable!!!!

Sounds like you guys had fun - and a whole back of the truck to yourselves, n-i-c-e!!!!!
