Entry: I Scream For Ice Cream! Wednesday, August 13, 2008

   OK, we have been in this apartment for over a month now and have all rental furniture and the clothes we brought.  We have one small bag of toys and a stash of DVDs.  Sadie and I are officially bored!  She is ready to be occupied with school and friends and I feel the same way.  So in an effort to keep busy I have been hunting out things to do during the week.        

   Tuesday we drove 35 miles  east of Columbus to Utica, Ohio.  Utica is the ice cream capital of Ohio.  Bet you did not know that!  Anyway, it is the home of Velvet ice cream.  At the Ye Old Mill you can enjoy a factory viewing of the packaging and see videos and here all about how ice cream is made.  The mill grounds were very scenic and the weather was great.  We took a nature walk, visited the ice cream museum, took the factory tour and had lunch in the old grist mill.  We spent a lot of time watching the ducks in the pond.  Sadie even made up a dance that is similar to the movements she saw the ducks preform.  It looks like a duck version of the chicken dance. 

   The Dagger family still owns the company and the 3, 4 and 5th generations of the family run the business.  Sadie's kids lunch even came in an ice cream carton.  Sadie stuck with chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream and i decided i would have the company signature flavor.  Buckeye classic is peanut butter ice cream with fudge swirls and chunks of peanut butter buckeye candies.  I offered to let Sadie try and it is now her new favorite.  Today we picked some up from the grocery store to share with Ross.
