evanston, wyoming: the scoop.

see MORE

on our way to fort bridger to meet up with my family last week, we stopped in evanston wyoming to see what their little downtown had to offer. we happened upon the cutest little ice cream parlor called the scoop. and since we were on vacation, we decided the best way to celebrate such a thing was with ice cream and a milkshake for dinner. :)
  1. I seem no shame in that. Any decent ice-cream lover would have done the same.

  2. You have the cutest little family…maybe…ever?

  3. how on earth is e so cute! her faces just make my day when i stop by:) cannot wait to havea family like this.

    Are those jeans you're wearing, Naomi? Leggings? Either way, you look so chic. Bonus points for adding red to an already awesome ensemble.

  33. Love your cute red shoes! are they thrifted or might I be able to find a pair for myself somewhere?

  34. emily

  35. Kortnie

    SOO crazy! I was in Evanston Wyoming and Fort Bridger this last week too!! Gosh what a small world! I would have loved to see you….you are like a celebrity haha! I love your blog!

  36. Whitney

    never, ever, ever can there ever be enough ice cream in the world.
    Eleanor is adorable…but we already know that! :)

  37. Katy

    how fun! ;-)

    I also went to Fort Bridger this weekend to spend time with my family. I saw this guy at church that looked just like your husband and he was holding a baby that looks just like your little cutie. I thought it couldn't be you because you are all the way in D.C. I totally freaked out when I saw on the blog that you were there. Your family was sitting in the row in front of my family. I almost said something to you, but like I said, I didn't think it was really you. (Is it weird to have stranger say hi?)

  39. the scoop is the most perfect name for an ice cream shop!

  40. Mmmm, I love places like that. :)

  41. What a gorgeous little ice cream shop! I love those types of old-fashioned, vintage/homey restaurants and wish we had more around the DC area :)

    P.S. I almost bought that same phone case this weekend…simply gorgeous…but had to go with my heart and get the one with a Yeti :)

    Have a fabulous trip!
