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 🙂

Taste of DC 2013

If you love food then the Taste of DC 2013 is where you need to be!
As a native to the area shamefully there were landmark eats that I had never even sampled such as Ben’s Chilli Bowl ( I know …I know) ,but after attending the event last year I’m totally locked in to a few new restaurants that I can’t live without. In general it’s a really good time with food and freebies.

The event will be held October 12-13, noon until 7 pm daily

Nom Nom Nom! Who ‘s Coming?

Art & Ice Cream

This past weekend we had the pleasure of hanging with Liv’s new friend Sebastion.

Lucky for us our play date was scheduled for National Ice Cream Day!
The kids were thrilled when they heard we planned to get some cold treats in this heat. Union Market hosted DC Scoop which was a wonderful event with tastes of the best ice cream, gelatto, and other frozen treats. My fave frozen treat hands down was the Liv was entertained by the Boogie Babies musical guest while we stood in crazy long lines for our desserts. One of my favorite beverage brands Honesty set up a really cute pop up shop. A free photo booth was also part of the event that the kiddies enjoyed. Dolcezza Gelatto was hands down my favorite! They served up a blackberry flavor that was SO good! They have a few locations around the city so that is very convenient for my taste buds.

After we finished at the DC Scoop we headed over to ArtJamz so Liv and her buddy could unleash their inner creative!
