While walking around the block I looked up and noticed the ice cream man go from a normal speed to a slow crawl when he drove in front of my house. I thought it might just be a coincidence until I saw him drive to the next corner, make a U-turn and the come back by my house a second time at the same speed.
Oh the joys of summer time…

    is this photo when he stopped out in front of your house and waited for your kids to come out? blaring "it's a small world" or creepy clown music, just in case they were in the backyard or something? totally cracking me up!!!

    I thought he came back because you are the regular customer. 😉

    I probably helped the ice cream man pay his mortgage when I was a kid!

    Dave ASK the ice cream "person" to always come by our house! I ask him if he was crazy – we didn't have money to buy ice cream EVERY night!! I like what my friend told her kids, "Awww…when he plays that song, it means he is out of ice cream!"

    Oh my gosh… I thought I was the only one with the ice cream truck stalking my house! It literally drives by my house every day in the evenings, and twice a day on the weekends.

    I am right there with you Trey, Katie and Emma can here that music a mile away and start screaming for ice cream. The other day that made it real creepy was he stopped in front of the house for 1/2 hour waiting for the girls to come out and buy some ice cream. The whole time they were crying and looking out the window. I think we need to know who our ice cream man is. I have visions of the horror movie with the ice cream truck everytime i see him. Dina

    We can buy a gallon of ice cream for the cost of two items from our local icre cream person. But Jackson quickly picked up on that music and it can be heard, literally, almost a mile away. I won't buy ice cream from the truck, but when he hears the music and says, "I-keem" we head down the hill to McDonald's for their Sundae … which requires some help on my part for him to consume it all.

    To my dear, never-yet-met-face-to-face, young & as-yet-unlearned friend, I share this from a lifetime of expeience: you can never spend too much money on ice cream!!!!!

    There is no ice cream truck in our rural community (plus my kids are now grown) but when the kids were younger there was one up at the lake house my parents own. My oldest daughter used to snap to attention whenever she heard the jingle of the truck. One day her younger brother decided to play a trick on her and started cranking one of those old toys where the bunny/clown/whatever pops out as you are cranking the music. Sounded like the tinkly music of the ice cream truck and he and his other sister (and I think my parents, actually) got a good chuckle as my daughter snapped to attention, peering down the street for the non-existent treat.

    Ah, the joys of childhood and of younger brothers….

    now that brings up some memories! for me the ice cream truck ALWAYS came right around dinner time so I RARELY got a treat! But regardless excitement bubbled up in my chest when I heard that familiar tune – it was hope that gave me excitement – hope isn't it grand?! You just never know what might happen!
