Full Time RV Living–Family Reunion–‘bout time

For Dave’s family reunion we were able to rent the

Family Center here at the park. . .

how convenient was that?

the one brother was hung up on a shutdown. . .

Dave’s worked many of those in his lifetime,

so we certainly understood. . .missed him though!

Everybody LOVES the Blue Bell Creameries

 

Blue Bell Factory Tour (30)

after all. . .what’s not to love.. .

all under one roof. . .fabulous!

Blue Bell Factory Tour, enjoying the goods

so. . .although we’ve been for the tour several times,

when the gang wanted to go. . .we were definitely onboard for the ride!

I admit to being an ice cream snob. . .

so when I go to an ice cream social at the RV Park,

if it’s not Blue Bell.. .I just do without. . .seriously!

Ben & Jerry’s or Haagen Daz will fill the bill. . .

but they are so pricey, I’m usually too cheap to spring for them. . .

so when we are out of state, I just had to be deprived. . .

Fortunately, Blue Bell has been branching out. . .

and we found Blue Bell as far north as a

Walgreens in Pennsylvania last summer. . .YES!

 

I fell in love with all the art

displayed throughout the museum area. . .

I hope you enjoyed it as well. . .

and of course to end the tour. . .

Til next time,

Janice and Dave
