This is already #6 in our Ice Cream tour! Yes this is Nelson's Ice Cream and there are only two locations for this family run business, Stillwater Minnesota and St. Paul Minnesota.
If you are looking for old fashion ice cream and a huge portion then this is the place to go! Nelson's offers over 40 flavors of ice cream and the amount you get huge and the price is fantastic!
We all ordered the kid size and none of us finished the monster portion size.
So since my ice cream was overflowing the cup I put half of it in a bowl. I finished all of the monster cookie flavor but became to full to eat the butter brickle flavor. I loved the monster cookie ice cream a lot, probably because it had a lot of peanut butter and I have become a peanut butter addict! My kids shared the ice cream flavor which actually has real gum in it.
I am so thrilled to recommend you all to plan a trip to Minnesota and go here for some great ice cream! :) Truly this child size was only $3.50... and most people can split it! :)
Nelson's also has a food challenge and since my husband was not on our road trip we are planning a time to go back so he can tackle the "Lumberjack" challenge. What exactly is the challenge? 5 softball size scoops of ice cream any flavor with three toppings! If you can finish the huge portion you get your picture on the "wall of fame!" So yes you better believe my husband is very excited for this challenge.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
