Here Travis is using his flip flop (he wanted a knife but, thoughtlessly, we had failed to pack one) to achieve straight sides and sharp corners.
And then, we went to visit my favorite ice cream store, which is right near the park. Travis and I had Cappuccino Crunch ice cream, which, aside from my mom's coffee/chocolate chip ice cream, is The Best Ice Cream in the World. Oh. my.word.
And, just to humor me (her expression is a little reluctant, isn't it!) Katie got on the horse she liked so much the first time we went to our ice cream store!
She's bigger now, but still just as sweet!
Days just don't get better than this!
