We went on a drive through the Hudson Valley this past weekend.
After a while driving down main street after main street, I decided all I wanted was some fresh-picked corn and soft-serve ice cream. Twist. Duh!?
And just around the next corner I got both at Dressel's. A dozen ears for $4.45. What? Shucked it on the grassy patch in our backyard before boiling it up that night. Softserve? Twist. Check. And they had a kid cone, which was perfect for my new calorie-counter husband (and the rest of us). When was the last time the four of us got ice cream for less than 7 bucks? Sheesh.
We ate lunch at Joey's. I had a great breakfast panini and Lolly devoured her banana maple crepes. She has been EATING lately...must be growing. As we ate, a local singer performed Clapton hits for us with voice, guitar and harmonica...it was random and a nice little piece of America (I know Clapton's not American, but the town, the singer, the food, you get it).
Phoebe wanted to know what all the red, white and blue flags were about. We explained that it was our nation's flag and displaying it was these citizen's way of expressing patriotism...pretty sure she had her headphones back on before we finished our speech.
And then suddenly the day was over. We devoured the corn and then tucked the kids in, and stayed up too late watching one of those HD movies on TNT.
