I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Turkey Hill Experience

We were not financially compensated for this post. We were given free tickets to the Turkey Hill Experience for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed are our own based on our experience.
Me - Turkey Hill Experience, wow! Turkey Hill was fun. I liked the free ice cream and drinks. I tried only two flavors. Even though samples were unlimited, I felt bad and felt like it would be like stealing to have more. My Dad, however, had no such problem, and he had a lot of samples. I had a lot of drink samples, however, because I kept getting really thirsty. My favorite drink was the fruit punch. Besides eating samples, there were a lot of other fun things to do at Turkey Hill. We got to make up our own flavor of ice cream. We got to design a package for it. We got to make a commercial for it. All of that was just virtual though, we didn't actually get to make up flavors that were made for us so we could really eat them. The commercial was actually recorded though but only to air on Turkey Hill's own web-site and to be sent to us by e-mail. In the Taste Lab, we got to make up our own flavors by adding flavoring to vanilla ice cream. I tried to make chocolate but my taste buds rejected it, and it still tasted like vanilla to me. I liked that we were able to add as many toppings and add-ins as we wanted. We learned that toppings are called variegates and add-ins are called inclusions. My family and I all had a good time at the Turkey Hill Experience.
Virtual Ice Cream Flavor
Mom - The Turkey Hill experience was a lot of fun. Luckily, I managed to not go crazy with the free ice cream samples. I only had two, Butter Brickle and Muddy Sneakers. Butter Brickle is Toffee flavored ice cream with buttered candy toffee pieces. Muddy Sneakers is white chocolate flavored ice cream with chocolate, caramel, and peanut candies in swirls of caramel. I liked them both but I especially liked Muddy Sneakers. As for drinks, I only sampled the fruit punch because I don't like tea or lemonade. The fruit punch was delicious though, and I had several cups of it. The virtual  ice cream flavor I made up was called Caramel Toffee Chipb. The extra b at the end was because my hand slipped when I was entering the information into the computer and I didn't notice until it was too late to change it. Other fun things we did at the Turkey Hill experience included flipping through a picture book of cow statues all decorated in different ways (some of them were quite creative),  Melia and Aurella got to pretend to milk cows (the fact that real liquid came out and they weren't reals cow was a little bit creepy though), we learned a little bit about the history of Turkey Hill and of course, we tried out even more Turkey Hill ice cream in the Taste Labs.
And that's our view. If you could make up your own flavor of ice cream what would it be?

 Tune in tomorrow for Funny Friday.
