Finally . . . The Elusive RB Float!

Remember at the beginning of summer
when I said one of the things on our
summer bucket list
was to ride our bicycles and get a root beer float?? 
 
 No, you don't remember??? 
Well, I do and it's been nagging at me for months -- yes, months!
 
Finally, last weekend, it was really warm -- as in up in the 80s again
and sticky and just plain hot.
We had gotten a bit used to the cooler temps of fall and
 didn't really want to go back to hot weather.



But, we decided to make the best of it and do some summery stuff.
First, we hit the zoo,
as I thought the zoo was still open. 
They had announced in our official local newspaper they would be open
 one more weekend -- but their definition of
weekend evidently means Saturday only and, so,
we were a day late and a dollar short.
 
I'm certain I've asked her other times, but I asked again
and this time she said,
 "yes, she'd love a root beer float!"  
 
And so, finally -- check that baby off the summer bucket list
 (though we didn't ride our bikes -- the nearby DQ had closed for the season too).



But we did hit a Sonic drive-thru!
 
And let me tell you . . .
 
She thoroughly enjoyed
 
her very first root beer float!
