The ice cream truck drives by our house almost every day from Memorial Day until Labor Day. Every time the girls hear the truck’s magical music (and yes, you can hear it all the way down in the basement with loud music and playing going on!) they coming screaming upstairs that they would like to buy some. I had to give them a lesson in the reality of the cost for these things. A box of 6 for $4.00 or two from the truck for $4.00… which is better? When they gave the right answer, a wave of sadness hit Pig Will. She asked if we wouldn’t ever buy from the truck. I replied that it would be a special treat every once in awhile if they had done their chores for the week on their chart.
I don’t know what makes the ice cream so much more special when it comes from the musical truck… but I can remember those days from my childhood hearing an ice cream truck…. and precious moments like these you just can’t pass up!
I’ve been playing around with Photoshop Elements… fun!
