Okay maybe this activity is more accurately described as a fun kids activity but either way, I had a blast doing it.
Basically you just get a block of ice cream and sculpt it into whatever you want!
Billy and I made a little white poodle. Please tell me that you could have guessed that without me telling you what it was.
The BIL and his wife made a beautiful upside down ice cream cone that had fallen on the ground and started melting.
The other BIL and his date made a taxi cab?
And the best part is that you eat it when you are done.
They dared him to stick his face in the ice cream and if he did then they would buy him a .99 taco. He will do anything for free stuff.
We obviously had to go redeem his free taco at 1 a.m. and Billy was finally able to try his spicy crunch wrap that he begs for every time we drive by taco bell.
What did you think of the results?
-I was really hoping that Desiree would come in first and I was rooting for Dathan to make the men’s team. The times were fast and I think that the runners that will represent the US in the Olympics are incredible and I am so excited for them.
Any fun/random date night activities to share with the class?
