i’m not sure how we first happened upon sweet things ice cream shoppe in downtown lexington virginia last fall, but we have been back many times since. they have the most incredible homemade oreo ice cream we have ever tasted…. among other awesome flavors. last weekend i tried the butter pecan and it was also amazing.
if you are ever in lexington virginia, you should grab yourself a scoop.

    I love your skirt!! Where did you get it?

  2. There is one drop of ice cream back there, and he is after it. The first picture..

    I like the skirt with the tights, black and blue or just black?

  3. I love that place! We went there probably 7 years ago.. And it's still my favorite memory of going to DC. We sat out front on a late August afternoon and people watched as we ate our yummy ice cream. Thanks for reminding me of that fond memory.

    Sundae School rocks! I've just started making home made ice cream with a White Mountain hand crank machine and the kids think it's awesome.

    If you don't make your own ice cream you should give it a try. Here's an interesting article I found that might be helpful to folks thinking about making their own.

  41. Are those your little twin sisters? They are adorable! So pretty!

  42. I went to W&L;, and we all practically lived there on the oreo ice cream. Good choice. Who do you know in Lexington!? Isn't it wonderful!?

  43. you family are so stunning! Bet your kids are going to be supermodels! :) xoxo

  45. Hey, next time you are in town you will have to let me know {I can give you a free Ghost Tour…all of the tour guides including me are LDS!} I live right down the road from Sweet Things! Their pumpkin ice cream is REALLY good as well and Chris-the owner is a SUPER nice guy!
