Cold! Treat! Wednesday!

 Kelsey from the Girl Next Door podcast and Rising Shining shared on Instagram that she and her kids are doing "cold treat Wednesday" this summer where every Wednesday, they try a new place for ice cream or smoothies, etc. I though this was a greta idea and promptly stole it. We planned to do it on Tuesdays, but the way our weeks are shaking out, Wednesdays work better.

As an aside-- here are the other days-- Minecraft Monday (the only day of the week they can use their iPads), New Park Tuesday, Cold Treat Wednesday, Library Thursday, and Fun Fun Friday (where we pick from a grab bag-- and there are some WEIRD choices in that bag).

So far, cold treat Wednesday is a GENIUS idea-- low key, easy to squeeze in to a packed day, and a whimsical way to get us over the middle of the week.

Week 1 saw us at The Chocolate Shoppe, a perennial fave:

Week 2 found us at Icki Sticki (eating Chocolate Shoppe)

And this week! THIS WEEK! We went to the Terrace.

This summer is my 18th in Madison, meaning when it is over, I will have lived here longer than I have lived anywhere, and last summer was the only one that was Terrace-less. I missed it so much that I almost cried when we rounded the corner and saw the lake and the rainbow chairs and all the happy people.

Lake Mendota! We missed you!
Memorial Union-- I almost sobbed.
Yay for ice cream!
They barely make a mess anymore
She wanted a picture in all the big chairs, but we couldn't find green.


Best view in town!
