snow cones

Some friends of the family that are visiting from out of town gave my boys a present – a snow cone machine!  We've never had one before so I had no idea how much they would enjoy it.

It’s great that they are old enough to put it together and figure out how to use it without my help.  That means I get to do more of what I love to do, which is to take lots of photos. :)

    I love the shot of their hands with the snow cone and the syrup bottle - really nice light.

  8. we love our snow cone maker!! I never would have gotten one, except I was craving shaved ice throughout my last pregnancy and I couldn't run to Sonic every day :) I never realized how much we would use it, at least once a day during the summer. We've also discovered making your own snow cone syrup with koolaid and simple syrup - much cheaper and many more flavors :)

  13. Thanks for the reminder Deb- I will be pulling out my snow cone machine this weekend- it will be a hot one. When I was expecting my first- I could not get enough of snow cones- I still LOVE them. When I spent a summer in NC- there was this little snow cone shack with about a million different flavors it seemed & we would stop there every day so we could get one.
