The Popsicle

After lunch today we went outside to have our first popsicle of the summer. Avery was determined to hold and eat her popsicle without help from me.
This is how she began licking the popsicle. (yes, the wind was blowing as usual up here)
Then when it started dripping she began carrying it upside down so it wouldn't get on her fingers. She licked it this way for a while.... actually a long while. Until....
SPLAT! Her popsicle started melting before she could eat all of it and the majority fell to the ground (which made a good place to play in later... or so she seemed to think)
The rest ended up falling off too before she could eat it, but she seemed to enjoy doing it herself. We watered the flowers after we ate the popsicle so along with the lasagna from lunch and popsicle on her clothes, they were wet when we went back in the house. So fun!

That is so cute..splat! We just found the best invention EVER at Wal-Mart. It holds the popsicle or an ice cream cone and keeps you clean. I love them!
