2014 Ice Cream Tour #12- Whitey's Ice Cream

I am going to say it right away, Whitey's was my favorite place so far in the 2014 Ice Cream Tour!  We actually ate here about a 2 weeks ago and all I can think about is going back and getting a "Boston!"  

The kiddo's got ice cream cones in a dish- again my son got a chocolate ice cream while my daughter got a strawberry sherbet.  The real crowd pleaser is Whitey's "Boston" which is a shake with a sundae on top. You might scratch your head and think no way but when you combine the flavors we did your mouth will be watering to try it!   

Our "Boston"  starts with a peanut butter shake (yes, still on the peanut butter kick) on the shake is a scoop of Reese's Peanut Butter Cup ice cream and then on that is peanut butter drizzle!  (Please never ever tell me how many calories are in one... I would run for an hour to eat one though!  Yes, they are that good)    

Yum, Yum, Yum- WE LOVE ICE CREAM!    

Whitey's is a local shop in the Quad Cities.   I believe there are only about 11 stores in Iowa and Illinois all within 50ish miles.   Yes, it is worth it to travel to come and try this ice cream- You must try to create your own "Boston" creation!   Let me know what type of combination sounds good... I can go try it for you if you want.   :) 

Whitey's is the place we take our guests from out of town!   The kids even make sure it happens when we have a new guest, they will not let us forget!  When my husband and I were visiting to see if God was calling us to the Quad cities we tried Whitey's and have been hooked ever since. 

So who is coming to visit me? Who wants Whitey's?

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

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!
