It's been really sunny here in Washington, and it seems like Franklin & I don't know what to do with nice weather. Also: we love food. We might start out on an adventure, but we'll become COMPLETELY sidetracked by the whims of our stomachs. We were supposed to go down to the river the other day, and we ended up at the grocery store instead. So we figured a way to get ourselves out and about: adventures that revolve around food. Huzzah!
So the other day, we drove up to Mount Vernon, through the Skagit valley farmlands, to Snow Goose Produce, where they're well-known for their ridiculously large (and reasonably priced) ice cream cones. They put like, an entire pint of ice cream into every scoop. Seriously. It was almost uncomfortable to consume, haha. It really makes you feel like a kid again, though, because you can't be meek when it comes to licking away at your ice cream. You really have to dig in, and meet the challenge head on, or you'll end up with melted ice cream everywhere. It forces you to stop being all dainty and stuff, and get really serious about eating ice cream. My motivation was the waffle cone, and it was well worth it. It was like a thick cookie with a soft bite to it. Sigh! I want another one.

If you're from the Puget Sound area, go get some ice cream now, 'cause they close after the summer months are over. Also: bring cash, and someone to eat ice cream with; expect a line, because they can get pretty busy; and don't eat a huge meal before you come, or you won't make it to the waffle cone!
