Two of the items on our Summer Bucket List was to tour the Homestead Creamery and eat ice cream sundaes for lunch. We decided we could knock both of those items out at once, only we'd be eating ice cream for dinner on this occasion.
Inside the store are many local products like cheeses and cases of regional meat.
They also have spices, jams, apple pie fillings, and extracts.
We like to eat our cones on the back porch, which is covered and relaxing.
They have about 20 flavors to choose from.
I got my standby favorite, peanut butter.
Check out the size of this cone - that's why it constituted dinner!
Paul decided to try something new, and got blueberry pomegranate.
Pierce had lemon crunch in a kid's cone.
And we all shared with the twins.
Ice cream for dinner makes for happy boys.
Turns out the tours are only offered on weekdays, when they have people working in the production part.
So we went out back to the petting zoo instead. The people who were working the store gave us an entire loaf of bread to feed the animals! They're so nice there.
They have a great sandbox set up, so the kids can feed animals and play in the sand, all at once.
Of course, Pierce went straight after this digger.
He was in the construction zone.
And no worries, I did supplement their dinner just a tiny bit when we got home!
