Okay, this post is for my husband who is currently working in England.
I wanted him to see this little field trip I set up for our girls to celebrate the end of school and a visit from my mom. Sometimes I am sure that he wonders (heck I wonder) if it wasn’t for him would I do all the hiking and traveling that we do.
This wasn’t too ambitious, but our day trip started with lunch at the Cornell Dairy Bar. I had heard that the ice cream there was extra special. When I got there the ice cream looked so good I decided that ice cream would be our lunch. I tried the Yam flavored (it was good!), but went with a peanut butter chocolate choice.
Then I took the family to Taughannock Falls State Park for a hike. The kids had fun collecting rocks and getting their feet wet.
A normal look from my 9 year old on hikes.
and due to these lovely expressions from my children I thought the post-procession needing a bit of something.
After our hike it started raining so I took them to a great used clothing store in Ithaca called Mama Goose. I let the girls each pick out an outfit that they changed into. We then went to the Commons (Ithaca’s pedestrian mall) to do some browsing at a used bookstore. We also picked up a few cheap hats.
The girls enjoyed modeling for me.
Finally we made it to the Moosewood Restaurant for dinner. It was a day trip worth repeating.
