My sister Stephanie is going to be staying with us for a few months until Uni starts back up again in the new year. It’s nice having her around and not just for a week, we’ll really get to hang out and just be, together. Let it be said though, our house is tiny so on the weekend we decided to get out on the road and go for a Sunday drive.
Disregard the look on Steve’s face, he loooooves Sunday drives as does Aidan. They head out every Sunday morning along country roads and sip their chocolate milks. It’s bonding time, man time. Aidan tells Steve stories, they sing, count all the animals and name the colours of all the cars that go by. It’s the one morning each week that I get the house all to myself, I make a nice breakfast and read the Sunday Magazine in peace.
This Sunday was different, this Sunday was all about heading out on the road together. Aidan entertained us with the wonders of his imagination and Steve and I fought over the radio station. Ahhh family.
We headed out west towards the Nepean River and just cruised. The pretty horses pranced, the sun shone and the air was thick and hot. In the old days we would of had the windows down, our arms out of the windows like aeroplane flaps. Childhood was freeing.
Where we grew up everything looked the same, scrubby flatlands, not a single hill and the road from Alice Springs all the way to Darwin was just a straight line. Dad always used to take us on Sunday drives, we only went along because it usually meant we’d get an ice cream at the end of it.
Which is exactly what we got at the end of ours. Baskin-Robbins invited our family to buy some treats in store and we were all excited. Stephanie used to work for Baskin-Robbins so it was fun having an “expert” on hand but it didn’t make selecting any easier.
I was so excited to get Pralines & Cream, it’s the only flavour I’d been craving since I was offered the opportunity and guess what… they didn’t have it at Penrith. I was crushed to the point where Stephanie wanted to take a photo of my sad face. I got over it though and picked another flavour, Vanilla Choc Chip Cookie Dough.
I got mine in a sundae because I just love Baskin-Robbins chocolate fudge sauce. Stephanie got Love Potion and Steve got a Berry Smoothie. Aidan, well he was absolutely beside himself when his order arrived…
Mint Choc Chip Kid’s Fundae with cream, sprinkles, nuts and a cherry on top… magical!
It was really hot outside so we decided to chill out in the little cafe area and savour the moment. Not a single drip of ice cream was left and the look on Aidan’s face as he ate each and every bite of his little piece of heaven was awesome to watch. With kids it really is the little things that delights them isn’t it… honestly I don’t think “big kids” are much different so why not indulge yourself too?
