solar eclipse and BOGO 99 cent blizzards

Last week, we were ready with our glasses for the solar eclipse. (Our next-door neighbors drove south to see the eclipse in totality, and our social media feeds were full of our Nashville friends experiencing it in totality, too. Maybe someday for us!)

We invited Kendall and the boys to come check it out, too.

Great-Pop-Pop and Great-Mom-Mom had come to hang out with us just because, so it was fun to watch the eclipse with them (even though they've already seen a solar eclipse).

We loved watching the crescent sun through the glasses (when the clouds stopped hiding the sun), but I especially love the crescent shadows!

Amos didn't care to enjoy the view.

Dairy Queen has a special (until September 3rd): buy one blizzard, get one for 99 cents. So, to celebrate the solar eclipse, we had ice cream for dinner.

Anna joined me for the only flavor blizzard I ever order: chocolate with Oreo. (Anna approved.)

Lydia (not pictured) enjoyed chocolate with Resee's peanut butter cup, and that side of the table had vanilla with Resee's peanut butter cup.

Hooray for solar eclipses and ice cream for dinner!
