all fixed up...sort of

This afternoon, Brinley and I went out to visit Olivia and clean up her grave some. The dirt is so dry out at Saltese that it took me longer than expected to rake the mound flat. Then Brinley and I hauled rocks from the other side of the cemetery to her site so that we could make a little border around her spot. It took us about an hour and a half to get it all done. Brinley was a trooper and loved finding her own rocks to bring home and paint.
She looks like a little homeless child here, the shoes she is wearing are about 3 sizes too big, but she insisted. This picture doesn't do it justice, she was SO dirty and loved every minute of it.

Later, Julie and Cody invited us (Matt, Brinley, my Mom and I) to the coolest little ice cream shop on Southill. What a fun place. It sits right in the middle of a residental neighborhood...we have a lot of places like that here. The place was packed due to an article in the newspaper. The ice cream was really good and if you want to visit this neat little shop, you can find it at 1001 W. 25th.

Yummy!! I am going there next date night. I love ice-cream!!! Have you tried Maggie Moos yet? It's comparable to Cold Stone Creamery.
Although I still like my Tillamook "Udderly Chocolate" from Albertson's. If you haven't tried it...It's a must!!

Tiffani- I like Maggie Moos better than Cold Stone, they have way better strawberry shakes...I know, with all that selection why would I get a shake?
