Family trip to TCBY!!

So we were all eating dinner and Stew says, "Family trip to TCBY!!" And so we all piled in to the van and made our way downtown to get the cream! We were quite the challenging order through the drive thru, but we all successfully got our ice cream as we wanted it and made our way back home! Yeah for ice cream!!!
