We had some time to kill before our reservation so we headed into the arcade, which was conveniently located right next door to Beaches & Cream. I think it was the highlight for Aria. She had a blast trying out all the different games, and didn't even want to leave when our reservation time popped up. Who knew she would like arcade games better than ice cream?
We talked her into heading over for our ice cream date though. Super cute little ice cream shop - right out of the 50s with pastels and even a juke box playing oldies. We hadn't planned on ordering the infamous 'kitchen sink' - multiple scoops of every ice cream flavor plus every topping they offer plus a huge pile of cherries on top. I was leaning towards a nice modest brownie sundae, Aria wanted strawberry ice cream, but Chris thought go big or go home. So, we ordered the kitchen sink. Sirens and lights go off when they bring it to your table, it is quite the experience. We ate and ate and then ate some more, but in the end the kitchen sink won.
Was it fun? Absolutely! Would I order it again? Only with at least twice as many mouths! Was it a memorable Mother's Day? Indeed!
