We have been waiting for this day for an entire year. Besides Christmas and possibly birthdays this is one of our most anticipated events. What is it you may ask... why it is FREE SLURPEE DAY! July 11! A day when children and adults unite in their love for a perfectly blended frozen treat known as a slurpee!
After last years hilarity of waiting in line for 20 minutes while the clerk cleaned up the mess from previous over-eager slurpee consumers, only to find a new mess within one minute of re-opening the machine... we were excited to find out what this year's experience would bring. We headed to 7-ll number 1 where we enjoyed the Cherry Minute Maid version. We knew from last year to avoid the Crystal Light red flavor that actually stung your throat chords on the way down. Then we set out for 7-11 number 2 where we found our new favorite flavor... Peach Mango Fusion! We had never tasted anything so sweet! 7-11's 3 and 4 were skipped as we were still fighting brain freeze. (Gotta love Colfax - 4 7-11's within 1 mile or so).
How else did we celebrate this wonderful day... by watching "The Goonies" in the park.
Life is Good!
