Waitin' on a Man 4

I woke up yesterday morning and I just knew.

It was the day that I would catch the Ice Cream Man.

I got all dressed up and sat on the front porch steps an hour ahead of schedule. He wasn't going to slip past me this time.

I got really bored just sitting on the porch. And cement is not exactly comfortable. So I took to pacing the driveway.

I had my money all ready to go.

And then I heard it. The music box melody that signaled the truck was getting close!

Turns out I was never waiting on a man. I was waiting on a woman. She was very nice and only gave me a few "You're crazy" looks when I took pictures of her truck!

I purchased a couple of "Big Sticks" from the Ice Cream Truck. (Which also sold candy and chips and soda. Nice. I have a feeling I'll be catching the Ice Cream Truck a lot more if I can.)

That folks, is the smile of success!

The caper is complete and I am fully satisfied!

Anytime I catch the ice cream truck, I always get the ice cream sandwiches. I know I can buy them in the store, but they seem so much better from the truck!

A woman!
What a plot twist!
This harrowing tale was fully satisfying.

That is awesome. I love your pictures!! Sadly it's too cold for icecream over here in the Midwest. It SNOWED this morning. :( I wish it would warm up already though! It's April!

I've been trying to catch our ice cream man (or woman maybe) for months! :O I'm starting to think s/he has forgotten our street completely... But at least you caught your :)

If I ever catch him/her I'm going to buy a whole bag of chocolate cones.

Mini - milk in strawberry or vanilla! Yummi - just the right amount of naughtiness, not enough to inspire guilt or a gluttony sickness.

Great post - the ice cream truck is always our first nod to warm weather. My kids love that truck! XOL

Haha! Very cute :) I especially love that you took pictures of the ice cream truck, because this is such a "blogger" thing to do. I'm so surprised people even look at us crazy anymore -- I mean don't a TON of people have blogs nowadays, haha?
