We started the day with heart-shaped waffles--dyed pink to boot!! Sorry I didn't get a photo of that. Then we decided to take the kiddos to a nearby town, Tuscumbia, to an old-fashioned ice cream parlor then to the park.
The Palace Ice Cream & Sandwich Shop was first built in 1833 as a drugstore. By the 1990's the drugstore was gone and the building was in disrepair. A local couple who had grown up frequenting the drugstore in the 40's & 50's decided to restore it in 2000. It's really a great little spot!!
(Aren't those the cutest t-shirts that my sister, Kari, made the kiddos?!!)
We had some yummy soup and sandwiches followed by some great ice cream~comfort food!
Then we headed a few blocks away to Spring Park. Even though it was a sunny day, it was still pretty cool. But we stayed for a little while and let the kiddos get some much-needed outdoor playtime. I think we've had a little touch of cabin fever lately.We fed the ducks and geese some of The Princess' leftover sandwich. They seemed to like it just fine!The kiddos wanted to try touching a duck--and, of course, Vince was egging them on!
The Princess actually got pretty close to this one, but would jerk back at the last minute. The duck finally had enough and flew away.
Then we headed back home for a nap! Does any day get any better?! :)
