National Cheeseburger Day - September 18th

Today we celebrate National Cheeseburger Day!
We love cheeseburgers. The kids even know how to make them themselves, choosing cheeseburgers back on National Kids Take Over the Kitchen day.
Ian might be going through a growth spurt too because he's ate an entire Ultimate Double Cheeseburger from Jack in the Box all by himself!

And I wasn't letting them celebrate alone. For lunch I stopped by Shake Shack and got a SmokeShack cheeseburger. Yum!

Drumstick Ice Cream Cereal

It's been a hot one today and the kids played for 3 hours at the park! After dinner we had a special taste test treat. Drumstick Ice Cream and Drumstick Cereal!

I knew this cereal existed, but could never find it locally. Luckily my brother in Colorado helps me find the things I can't.
You know how I like to try the original along with what something is trying to represent. I was looking all over for these Drumstick Ice Cream cones. You can see that the cereal does not have peanuts, either on the picture on the front, or as a flavor in the final product. So I was on the hunt not just for a Drumstick without peanuts, but also with Mint as a flavor. Thankfully on a random trip to Walmart I happened to see these in the freezer section. Success! Let the taste test begin!

National Play-doh Day - September 16th

Recognized by Hasbro since 2006, September 16th is National Play-Doh day!
Started as a wallpaper cleaner, for some reason, once sales diminished, it found new life in the classrooms as a replacement for modeling clay.
With the grandparents here, they were more than happy to help celebrate the day!

And wow, that's a lot of colors of Play-Doh.

Chuseok - Korean Thanksgiving

Chuseok is one of the major Korean holidays. It celebrates the autumn harvest, honors your ancestors, and feasts with special Korean food.

National Cream Filled Donut Day - September 14th

It's a beautiful day here in sunny So Cal and the kids and I are outside enjoying the nice weather. It also happens to be National Cream Filled Donut Day.

1000th Post!

Wow. When I started blogging and writing up our trips 7 years ago, I was never imagining that it would evolve into this. But here we are, years later and still going strong.
I thought it would be fun to do a retrospective of the past 1000 posts.

Happy National Chocolate Milkshake Day - September 12th

It's National Chocolate Milkshake Day today and for my money, Chick-Fil-A makes one of the tastiest fast-food shakes around. I think it's because their ice cream (Icedream) has that old fashioned ice cream flavor and it makes a really good milkshake. And they top it with whipped cream and a cherry.

Krispy Kreme's Pumpkin Spice Donuts

Is it Fall already? Krispy Kreme seems to think so because they've brought out the Fall treats early. 

For one week only, they're selling their new Cream Cheese filled Pumpkin Spice Glazed Donuts.

National Salami Day - September 7th (And World Beard Day)

For a quick savory treat, the kids like salami (and cheese). Perfect because today is National Salami Day!

And I threw in a few more meats that they might not necessarily like, but I certainly do.

National Cheese Pizza Day - September 5th

We're a family full of pizza lovers, and usually we're fans of meat pizzas, but today for National Cheese Pizza Day we can go without.
