The night before Nathaniel's third birthday, we all went out for ice cream after dinner. It is a tradition that started in 2009 when Hubby and I went to our last date before we officially became parents (I was being induced the next day). It is a little family tradition we have kept but really, any reason to eat ice cream is ok in our book ;) The (only) Cold Stone Creamery in our city is a very special Cold Stone. If you look closely at menu, everything is $4.99. You want an ice cream in Like It size with two mix-ins? That will be $4.99. Love It with waffle bowl and four mix-ins? $4.99! Milk shakes? $4.99! $4.99! $4.99! When we first discovered this, we went a little too often. And I've bragged so much about it to my family that when they visited us, it's a no brainer that we had to go here.
