Blue Bell Ice Cream Tour

For fun on our Spring Break week we went on a tour at the Blue Bell Ice Cream Factory.

The three brothers who founded Blue Bell.

Oops about Trainboy's face not being visible!
Sweet little boy with his short hair.

Handsome boy with his glasses. Nice to see his face!

My big boy is getting so big!

So we have never really had a Spring Break before as a family - but this year we all had this week off! No teaching or classes for anyone. Well...except a certain grad student had tons to do anyway. But he joined us for this fun day trip.

The tour doesn't allow cameras but the kids really enjoyed seeing the ice cream be made. Then of course the ice cream at the end was a treat!

 Our camera has been slowly dying and really made that manifest on our trip. It just keeps doing the opposite of what you want - changing functions and such. So you could say it is becoming possessed.

On the way home we saw a pastured poultry farm and stopped. We were delighted to find a local farm that grows grass fed pork and chicken and actually delivers to our area too! The farmer also let us look around at all the happy animals. The kids loved seeing the turkeys, the chickens and the pigs. It is called Yonder Way Farms. Wish I'd taken some pictures but I'm blaming our dying camera on that.

We had a fabulous spring break week of low key fun at home. It could be called a "staycation". We also had a full day of video games and a full day of playing with friends among our adventures.
