A Trip To Blue Bell

On President's Day, we made a day trip to the Blue Bell Creamery in Brenham, Texas. Steve, my brother in-law, called and said he and his kiddos were going to Blue Bell and they invited us to come along. Kevin had the day off and none us had ever been to Blue Bell, so we took him up on his offer. We packed up and made our way to Brenham. Before we made it to the creamery we had lunch at the Brenham Municipal Airport. We ate at the Southern Flyer Restaurant at the airport. It is a 50s style diner. The waitresses are decked out in poodle skirts and the whole nine. It was fun. Afterwards, we watched a few planes arrive and depart. Then we were off for our 11:30 tour. It was so fun to watch how the ice cream that we eat at home is made. Matt and Alex especially loved the ice cream sandwiches being made. They are a Parks staple. If you have never made the trip to the creamery, I highly recommend it. At the end of the tour you get a sizeable sample of ice cream. They let you choose from about 30 flavors. I had my fave rocky road. It was a great day! The only thing missing was Jennifer. She had to work. We missed her!!
