how to make a well-spent weekend

First off, find some people that you really love being around and join them for a few days up north where it is a bit cooler. Next, place yourselves in a downtown craft fair and walk and look and enjoy the creativity.
Discover new "living creatures" and observe them with awe and wonder. Touch them, talk with them and become good friends.
Find yourself an open curb to watch the small town parade while sipping a refreshment.
And be totally amazed at the talent that drives by. This kid...amazing. I don't know if it is dancing or roping or just pure genius...but it is certainly incredible what this guy can do.
Next, find yourself some gorgeous scenery with water and earth. Set up a blanket underneath a tree. Enjoy some grub while exploring (and respecting) the natural world. Finally, top it all off with some sweetness.

Mix and enjoy.

Serves as many as you would like.

You should probably contact DQ and send them that pic. She is the poster child of cuteness and ice cream. :)
