This event happened a few weeks back ,but I have been busy living thus the post delay. This was our second year attending Kids in the Kitchen hosted by Junior League of Washington. It’s actually so well put together we will absolutely continue to attend annually.

This free event highlights wellness and movement for family’s with a focus on the children. The crafting tables had healthy food plates kids could assemble, recipe books that were compiled of recipe cards gathered during the event also a oversized coloring mural allowed children to draw their favorite fruits and vegetables from each season. Multiple sample stations with fresh juices and build your own trail mix to name a few. They had the cutest little obstacle course where the kids got a certificate upon completion. Liv still does her push ups after this exercise. The hockey team sport as well as the instructor led movement class rounded out a great day of healthy lifestyle activities. Literally on the way out the door I entered into a raffle and …. Wait for it…… I WON! This is a new phenomenon for me! Winning raffles that is but I gladly and graciously accepted my Whole Foods gift basket. If the edible goodies weren’t prize enough I also had a gift card included in my basket! Very Very Good Event!

My family had an amazing time at the Turkey Hill Ice Cream Factory. If you love ice cream this place is a must. Some time ago I purchased discounted admission tickets ,and children under 4 enter the museum free! I’m so glad we didn’t let our tickets expire.

The museum guides you through the family history of Turkey Hill allowing you to hop in their first ice cream delivery truck and watch a short movie about the ice cream factory. You are able to start to finish experience what it takes to make delicious ice cream and teas. There are cows to milk, quality control microscopes to determine if the milk is up to par, mixing and packaging stations where you can name and design your own package! You can even take a walk through the freezer, make a commercial and best of all…. UNLIMITED SAMPLES! The samples are a size of a scoop somy family was soooo full before we got to the Taste Lab! We were able to make our own pint sized flavor! This was a yummy experience for any ice cream lover!
Thanks to my love for snapping these great photos in between bites of ice cream 🙂
