A can of worms...

Anna had  a whole dollar bill and lots of change in her sock purse.  She has been saving for something for a while now.  She finally figured out what she was saving it all for.  Ice cream from the ice cream truck.  She only recently realized (either after we or friends told her) what the truck with the loud music really was.  I was reluctant open that can of worms and tell her in fear that she's ask every day to have ice cream, even though she is very good at taking "no" for an answer.  I just thought I wouldn't torture her more by tell her "no" almost every time she asked.  Sad and probably a little mean, I know.  At any rate, she knows the ice cream man well now.  She was proud to hand over her dollar to get the neopolitan ice cream sandwich she selected that cost $1.50.  
She and Daddy waited for a long time for the ice cream man to drive down our street, then at the intersection (below), he turned the other way... so they had to wait a little longer.
Daddy's fudge bar, and that gross neopolitan sandwich.  She loved every last bite.  I took lots of shots of her enjoying her sandwich and thought they uploaded.  They didn't...and I erased my card thinking they did...  Dang.

Will knows it's called the ice cream truck but I don't think he realizes why it's called the ice cream truck...
