This afternoon we had a special treat planned. Harper recently got a marble jar to go along with Handley's and this reward system is working just as well with her as it does with Handley. She can be so stubborn, but when I remind her of earning marbles she usually will jump at the chance and do whatever it is I'm asking of her. Both girls filled up their jars earlier this week and this afternoon as their special reward we went to a new frozen yogurt place, Cowlicks.
We invited our playgroup friends to join us, too! Handley was most excited about being able to put her own toppings on the ice cream. Knowing this I gave her a little bit of frozen yogurt and let her pile on the toppings. I told her she could pick 3 and she ended up with marshmallows, gummy worms and chocolate chips. Harper picked sprinkles and M&M's.
After everyone was done eating the girls enjoyed playing together and must have made quite an impression on the employees there because the guy behind the counter was giving them extra gummy worms and sharing pictures of his pets with all of them before we left. It was too cute!
