Snow Cones & Sparklers

Last night we had a fun night of making snow cones with the Ross family. Holly really wanted to use her Snoopy Snow Cone maker - so, tonight was the night. She chose a few Kool Aid packs to make her syrup with. Bryan mixed it up... bitter, but used.

They put in their iced and cranked the handle. Holly started and then stopped. Bryan started with Holly and then needed help. So, Kristina hopped in and helped. Before you know it Uncle Don was holding down the machine with Bryan cranked, Kristina pushed the Snoopy part and Holly monitored the 'snow' coming out. Next time around... Poncho jumped in to help too! So, how many people does it take to make a snow cone... a really little snow cone? A lot! Holly had fun. The mess was big. The snow cones were bitter, not sweet. But -- a good time was had by all and a good amount of laughing happened!
Poncho surprised Holly with some boxes of sparklers for the holiday weekend. But, they did one box last night with her for fun - she loved it. A big improvement from the past two years where she was afraid to hold them. I think the evening was perfect for this five year old!
