Shadow Shot Sunday ~ midair

I enjoyed watching this tyke learning how to bounce a basketball at a back to school event Ralph and I attended Sunday.
We are members of the local Salvation Army's advisory board and helped out a bit at the event.
There were a lot of volunteers there so we really didn't have to do too much!
But we gave our moral support to the effort. I'd say a good time was had by all.

And here he is looking at the dunk tank, which I'm sure he would have liked to try out!

Shadow Shot Sunday

I dug into the "archives" this morning to find a photo so I could join in Shadow Shot Sunday!
I've been away too long from this fun meme. 

I took this in September 2010. It's a mulberry tree in our front yard.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ... fro yo?

I had fun writing this yesterday..almost as much fun as I had taste-testing the frozen yogurt. 
I thought I'd re-post since I've neglected my blog for too long.

Catchin' a wave - Peachwave - in Shelton 

SHELTON - I don't know why it took us so long to try Peachwave, but I'm sure glad we did. The self-serve, soft-serve frozen yogurt was simply scrumptious. I thought it tasted just like soft-serve ice cream.

Daughter Allegra and I visited Peachwave at 702 Bridgeport Ave. Wednesday and we weren't disappointed. She chose cupcake and peach-flavored fro yo (on left in photo) and covered it with Fruity Pebbles (she is still a kid, I guess!).

I had pistachio with chocolate accompaniment. Great combo! I chose M&Ms and birthday cake cubes for a topping. And a bit of whipped cream. Is that enough sugar for one day? I should say.

There are lots of toppings from which to choose, including more healthy choices like fruit and nuts. Next time!

One of the company slogans is "Promoting healthy dessert in a fun way."

After you make your fro yo sundae it gets weighed. That's when you find out how much you gave yourself and how much you have to fork over!
But it's truly worth every spoonful.
If you live in the Valley or surrounding towns, another close-by Peachwave is in Oxford, at 71 Oxford Road. And there is one in Monroe, at 535 Monroe Turnpike.

If you haven't tried it yet, and you love ice cream like I do, I recommend stopping by and catchin' a wave.
