Sweet treats!

Even when freshly washed and relieved of all obvious confections, children tend to be sticky.”

~Fran Lebowitz

Cousin A has the coolest job ever. She works at a snowball stand. Not just ANY snowball stand – THE snowball stand. Dreams are delivered through that place, wrapped up in crushed ice and tied neatly with a marshmallow ribbon. They have or will invent every flavor known to mankind, and serve it with ice cream to boot. It doesn’t get any sweeter . . .or stickier!

T has never had a snowball before, so we had to stop by and visit. We grabbed an aunt or two on our way, just to make it even more fun, and while SuperPuff gobbled down freezing spoonfuls of sugar and ice, I had a wonderful time documenting the experience with my trusty Nikon.

It should be known that she started the evening off with a child-sized (thimble-full) Blue’s Clues flavored (whatever that means) plain old boring snowball, but after a few minutes decided that my much larger marshmallow-drenched cherry was the way to go. And who can blame a girl for that!? A fun first experience it was, to be sure. . .and somehow I forgot to bring the baby wipes. . .

Now THAT’S flavor!
