I had a great time with the kiddos today at A Scoop Above--an awesome little gelato place in Cottonwood, AZ. The kids got a 1/2 pb & j, a banana, milk, and a scoop of gelato for all of $2.99! Health food for less than McDs--with a wonderful playroom to boot!
The kids earned their $3, too. $2 was a bribe to try catfish at McAdoos on our trip to Texas--they all loved it, even Tristan, who vowed to order catfish next time around. Josyan liked it so much that he insisted that he wanted catfish at every other restaurant we went to. :-) And the extra $1, well that was for being so awesome on the 18 hour drive home!!!
I love the simple times with the kids. I know it's not much, but it means a lot to them. And I'm so thankful for places like A Scoop Above where they offer great products at a decent price. (50 cents for a scoop for kids 5 & under!!!) If you're in the area--give it a try. It's across from the DQ.
