Happy Free Cone Day!

After we dropped Emma off at Crickets today Grace asked if we could get some ice cream.  Ice cream sounded like a fabulous idea to me so I began to contemplate where we should go.  After a little thought I settled on Ben & Jerrys.  As I drove to B&J's I thought about what kind of ice cream I would get (Jimmy Fallon's Late Night Snack?  Cherry Garcia?  Phish Food?) and how we'd probably have the place to ourselves since it was the middle of the day on a Tuesday.  As soon as we arrived we noticed that there were an awful lot of people standing outside of Ben & Jerry's.  If it had been a gorgeous 80 degree day like we had a couple of weeks ago this would not have been shocking, but seeing how it was in the 60s and breezy this seemed a little strange to me.  It could only mean one thing:  It must be free cone day!  What a perfect day to get ice cream!  Grace chose Phish Food and I had Mint Chocolate Chunk.  Sadly Jimmy Fallon's Late Night Snack was not an option.  As we headed out of Ben & Jerry's and back to our car Grace loudly proclaimed: "I love free cone day!"  And I couldn't agree more!


  1. We tried to go to free cone day only to find out the B&J that was the closest to us had closed. Bummer.

  2. Oh that is a total bummer! Hopefully one will open near you soon!
