My Sassy Kids at Sassy Cow

One of our favorite places to hang out in the summer is Sassy Cow Creamery (HERE). It's a short drive into the country from our home. I've also been known to ride out there by bike to enjoy an ice cream cone. Carb-loading for the ride back, right?!?!

After school on Friday, I knew they would be looking for an after school snack, and I thought this would be a fun way to hang out, get Little Diva to talk about her day/week (since I hadn't been with her all week) and to enjoy a tasty summertime dessert. When we pulled up, Little Diva and I were both shocked by the amount of cars in the parking lot. Popular destination for a Friday afternoon! It turns out that Sassy Cow also offers free creamery tours on Friday afternoons.

Sassy Cow has so many phenomenal flavors in their ice cream case. Good ol' standbys and creative concoctions. Our favorite is always the Birthday Cake flavor, which is similiar to Cold Stone Creamery's Cake Batter ice cream. We love it! Instead of getting cones, we always get a pint (for only $4) and share it. It's more fun for the kids ... and more affordable on this mommy's pocket book!

They have a nice out patio outside with comfy seating, small chairs for the kids and tractors to play on. The kids always have a blast. Where else can you get some ice cream and sit outside, enjoy the countryside and let the kids play?

Of course, Little Dude enjoys all things pink and girly, due to my little obsession with pink (and that he has an older sister!)! He always chooses the pink tractor over the green one.

I'm looking forward to taking the kids back to Sassy Cow in a couple of weeks for our second trip of the season. Sassy Cow is hosting a Farm Adventure Weekend (HERE) May 21-22. Check it out if you will be in the Madison area.

  4. Not sure about kid-friendly apots in my area (don't have kids), but when I was younger, my favorite place was a nearby nature center. My grandmother used to take us walking on the trails almost every weekend.
