This summer, (30 some years later...ahem) we set out to find our own ice cream truck. Last week we had one failed attempt. No running or chasing involved, just ambling through the neighborhood trying to pinpoint the location of the fading tune while not letting the girls get too discouraged. But...today, we got him. I heard the familiar music, charged downstairs, grabbed a wad of cash and ordered Brooklyn to, "Don't let him get away!" I let the ice cream man know, "We've been waiting all summer for this." Brookyn informed me she had been waiting her whole life for this. Success, sweet success.
PS-of course they chose the most freakish looking treats- for the gumballs no doubt. What is it about gumballs in ice cream that kids can't resist?
