Sweet Made Sweeter

All day Tuesday, it rained in Brooklyn and the sun stayed behind clouds.  Boo!  The day was downright dreary...not exactly the kind of weather for getting back into your routine after Memorial Day Weekend.  

But then...we got to spend the late afternoon with these cutie pies!!!  (Best thing ever.)

These two siblings (and near neighbors) are some of our favorite kids.  We had a little outing planned with them...and I'm telling you, seeing their little faces completely turned my day around!!!  :) :)  

We were headed to Wendy's because we got invited to try their new Frosty Waffle Cones.  So fun, right?  I don't even eat dairy/gluten, but I was still so giddy to share the experience with these two - and to have an excuse to go on a little outing with them (and, of course, Danny loves his Frosties.  :)

On the way over, the kids were SOOO excited.  They told us they had to eat lots of vegetables before coming.  haha.  

They could not be sweeter.  Here they are patiently waiting for their cones...

And...behold...Frosty Waffle Cones!!!

This little guy said he had never had a waffle cone before...haha.  
He didn't realize you could eat the sides of it.  :)


They both said that the best thing to do on a rainy day was....eat icecream.  :)  

Afterward, we thought it would be fun to surprise the table next to us with some cones.  I mean, why not share the love?  :)  We asked the kids what they thought of the idea and they went NUTS.  They were SOOOOO excited about surprising this other family, which was the sweetest thing ever.

So we bought a few more waffle cones and made a delivery...

I can't even tell you how happy and surprised that other family was.  Yay for the perfect ending to a rainy day.  And I kind of melted on the way home when the kids asked what our next adventure will be... :)  :)  

We're so grateful to Wendy's for sponsoring this post.  And for the record, I'm also grateful for their gluten-free baked potato and chili.  It's pretty much the only gluten-free meal to be had on roadtrips!! :)

  1. Oh my goodness!!! They are precious!!! I'm smiling so big just reading this :)

  2. Hot road trip tip: When you are in the South, Chick-Fil-A grilled nuggets and their fries are GF (double check that they're also DF, I'm not sure off hand). It is a favorite stop for my GF little boy:-)

  3. Really? Wendy's?

  4. I have always had a soft spot in my heart for Wendy's. I know they are just generic fast food but I LOVE how supportive they are a foster care and adoption. Did you know that they have a program that helps subsidize adoptions for their employees?! I will support any company that supports families that way. :-)

  5. Those children are adorable.

  6. Ice cream sure is a fun way to spread love! Teaching children to give others something they enjoy so much themselves is such a good idea.

  7. Really, really bummed to see your blog - which I usually associate with positive, healthy, soul-feeding things - promote and partner with a company that produces mostly toxic, unhealthy food and that is a huge contributor to the country's obesity epidemic and an array of other health problems. If something isn't healthy for you (given that dairy promotes inflammation), why promote it for other people and why profit from that promotion? I'm sure you can make enough money from partnering with companies that do good in the world and whose values align more closely with those of this blog.

    Cute kids, though.

  8. don't get your panties in a twist over it @anonymous. people can have a treat every once in awhile.

  9. Ah, this post made my day. I just love how you guys always find simple, sweet ways to show kindness to people. The part about taking the treat to the other family (and the adorable photo of the kids with it) actually made me tear up!

    This blog makes me feel lighter and happier every time I come by to read. Thank you for that! :)

  10. awww this post is adorable and those children are adorable. sounds like everyone had a wonderful day and the pictures of you and dani with the kids, melts my heart. i really hope that you two have your own adorablenesses soon. you two will make excellent parents.

  11. I love the baked potato and chili options. I think your complainers don't have children. We eat at Wendy's more than I'd like...and I'm the kind of mom that makes my kids eat extra veggies to eat a treat.

    I'm also gf and now going dairy free too, so I will miss the couple bites of frosty I share with my kids.

  12. When we are traveling, my husband and I often end up at Wendy's because we know the chili (for him) and baked potato (for me) will be safe! We don't eat there on a regular basis, but when you aren't near home or a kitchen, it's hard to stay GF. But NOT eating GF isn't an option...so Wendy's it is! And plus it tastes pretty good.
