|The 4 boys, sitting outside Popey's.|
We have been hearing about Popey's ice cream for as long as we've known the B's. I can't tell you how many times we sat down with a Blizzard or ice cream treat from somewhere and the B boys said how much they wished they were eating Popey's instead. Honestly, I thought DQ was pretty darn good when it came to ice cream. I didn't doubt that Popey's had good ice cream necessarily. I just thought maybe their deep and abiding love for it was more of a family loyalty thing. :)
We got to CT on a Monday afternoon and Popey's is closed on Mondays, so we had to wait until the next day for the B's to have Popey's again and for us to have it for the first time. Tuesday morning, that was the first place we went. We had some shopping and running around to do, but we stopped there first.
They have some good hard ice cream, but what we all really wanted was the soft serve. They had vanilla, chocolate and swirl. Along with that, they had a wall of toppings. Yes, a WALL of toppings you could put on your ice cream. If you wanted it, they had it. Fudge and caramel sauces, candy, candy bars, cookies, etc...it was all there.
To make it even more special, each of the boys got to make their own little masterpieces.

So that's a glimpse into one of my wee ones neuroses. Back to the rest of the Popey's visit, lol...

Q was hiding from the limelight this go around, but Z had a turn at the machine, then so did I.
|Z, an old pro at this by now. :)|
|My favorite mix? Hot fudge, caramel and Oreo pieces. :D|
