Silly Summer Fun

I found a pattern for a fun crocheted ice cream cone online It just looked so silly and fun. So, I had to make a couple. This is my orange sherbet version. I gave this to my 4 year old friend Rebecca. I hope she thought it was as silly and fun as I did. She lives in Portland and haven't gotten word what she thinks yet. These pictures were taken at the gas station. I was on my way to see Rebecca's mom, who was in town for one night. I thought if I give the cone to her mommy I won't have to mail it. Then I thought oh geeze I haven't taken any pictures of my handy work. So, at the gas station my daughter posed for some quick pictures.
She kept looking around making sure no one she knew saw her. BUT she was a good sport and posed with my crocheted ice cream cone!

Knowing my daughter was showing the telltale signs of teenage embarrassment I had to tease her just a little. We had to go through a fast food drive thru to get my friend an extra large Mr. Pibb. While waiting at the window for our order I slowly started to pickup the ice cream cone. I slowly raised it to my face (all the while my daughter is saying "mom don't you dare") and just as I started to pretend to lick it my daughter yanked it out of my hand and threw it to the back of the car. Far out of my reach! She did it so fast I hardly knew what happened. We both laughed so hard. Me, because my joke was foiled and she because she wasn't going to let me embarrass her or myself for that matter.
The pattern can be found at "The Adventures of Wondermommy."

Whenever my children told me I was embarrassing them, I threw this line: Embarrassing children is what makes parents' lives worthwhile.

Needless to say I didn't hear much in retort.

I love the ice cream cone. I knit two cupcakes for the same reason.
