Weekend photos - April 2008

Photos from the weekend

(above: honeycomb found on the ground at a Lake Springfield park.)

This limo was so long I couldn't get the whole thing in the frame.

Are these little Ben and Jerry cartons cute or what?
Finally, one carton is really a single serving!
Looks like one carton holds 3.6 oz. Less than half a cup.
BTW, free cone day is coming up on April 29, 2008.
Check here for locations.

BTW, Baskin Robbins is hosting their 31 cent scoop night on April 30, 2008.
(Yes, we do have a local Baskin Robbins.)

Hmm, could this be the clue we need to determine the flavor of International Buffet's blue ice cream?

Wow! The dog park was more than a bit soggy on April 19, 2008.
I'm wondering if some mulch could be added to make it a bit less of a mud bog.
Would rubberized mulch help at all?

Looks like we might be getting a Texas Roadhouse restaurant.
I wonder if those are similar to the Logan's Roadhouse restaurant chain?
At Logan's they sell desserts in these little containers (see above photo) that you can take home with you.
