Ye Olde Mill and my birthday

Last Tuesday, July 28, I turned 36 years old! I had a good birthday, even though Jacob tried to tell me that I was turning 46! Bill had bought me doughnuts from Tim Horton's as a birthday breakfast treat. He got me honey cruller donuts which are my favorite! The rest of the morning was spent at home, when my mom and sister came over. 

After Bill got home from work, we headed out and had Burger King for lunch. We decided to spend some family fun time together and so we then took the kids to Ye Olde Mill at the Velvet Ice Cream Company in Utica for a treat. We go there every year for the Ice Cream Festival, but we wanted to go when it was a lot less crowded and we could just relax and explore the grounds a bit.

 We walked through their little museum and read some fun facts about ice cream. 

We let the kids play on the playground. 

We took part of a nature walk, until the trail was roped off due to recent flooding. 

Then we got to the best part....ICE CREAM! Benjamin had chocolate ice cream in a bowl. Jacob and Bill had Buckeye Ice cream cones. Rebecca had cookie dough ice cream in a cone. And I had peach cobbler ice cream in a cone which was divine!

After eating our ice cream, we walked around and looked at the ducks and fish in the ponds. 

Then we headed home hot and tired. For dinner, Bill took me out to eat at a local Mexican restaurant. The food was great! Then we went to see "Ant-Man" which was okay I guess. Not the greatest movie. 

Overall, it was a very good way to turn 36 years old.
