Playgroup Field Trip

Our playgroup took a train from Fresno to the little town of Hanford.  We rented a "fire engine" around the town.  The truck driver took us to a little carousal, the most scrumptious ice cream shop, and the park.  Then we hopped back on the train.  It was great fun.  I couldn't resist pulling Taylor out of school to participate.  I was wiped out by the end of the very long day, but it was well worth it.


Here's part of the gang

McKay had a blast.  It was the perfect day for a little boy.

Maren loved the carousel, but I only let her ride it once because she gets car sick and I didn't bring a change of clothes.  I didn't want to take my chances.  

Here's the the whole gang on the fire truck

Ready to board the train

  Looking at this picture makes me want to go back this very minute.  I ordered 4 scoops for $5.30 and this is what they gave me!  
It's Rocky Road, Chocolate, Banana, and Strawberry.  It's the best ice cream I've ever had.  
Yes, my kids and I ate the whole thing!  What a yummy lunch on a chilly day!

sounds like fun. When you say "chilly day" - what exactly do you mean? 50's? 60's?. I look forward to the upper 40's so I can wear shorts and a tee shirt. And that is why I miss california.

What a fun trip! That ice cream looks YUMMY!! IT is 7:45am here...do you think it's too early for me to have ice cream?

AWESOME! That must be at least a half gallon of ice cream. Hey, did you know that my dad was born in California?! Yep, Grace and John lived there for several years. Funny, huh? I've always wanted to visit Hanford.

Sarah, that ice cream reminds me of roommate days when we would buy a carton and eat the whole thing in one sitting! I miss those days :)

Your kids are so cute! I'm sad you're not coming to Utah, but I'm so grateful Spencer didn't get hurt worse! I had to get scrubbed when I was little, so I understand what he's going through. We're praying for Spencer and for your whole family! We love you guys! Get better soon!
