The best Ice Cream in the country!

I Scream, You Scream, We all Scream for Ice Cream! Today we and some great friends of ours loaded up the car with ice cream books, snacks, and iphones and headed about an hour and half down the road to Brenham.  We took the kiddos to the Blue Bell Creamery to see how ice cream is made and packaged.
We raced there to make sure we weren't late for our tour... but we were anyway so we caught the next tour.  While we waited we checked out some of the antique ice cream displays.

Outside their was an antique ice ceam delivery car that we hitched a ride on.  There were no cameras allowed on the tour... can't let the ice cream secrets out.  We did learn some interesting  facts on the tour
  like Homemade Vanilla is the only flavor made everyday, all the other flavors are made on certain days.  They only make 6 flavors a day!!  Also it takes 60,000 cows to produce the amount of milk for one day of production!
And the best part of the tour - After the tour we got to eat ice cream! Yummy!

Both Merritt and T chose Rainbow Sherbet while the mommies got cookies & cream and Buttered Pecan. Did I already say Yum?!

After the gift shop, we headed out to grab some lunch - What a fun day with our friends!!

My favorite sign!
