Bellville, Brenham, and Blue Bell Oh My! Part 2

{a very excited dad at the Blue Bell factory}

Growing up in Omaha, Nebraska, my dad had never ventured out to the Blue Bell factory as most Houston-area raised kids have. It was fun to not only get to go with him to go on a day trip with him during my spring break, but it was fun for me to get to see him enjoy something that we could get to do together without worrying him worrying about work or me about school. Instead, we just got to learn about ice cream, eat it, and drive through Texas. Sounds pretty good to me.

Overall, the day was fun, meaningful, (definitely) delicious, and relaxing. Though Houston isn't anywhere near as bustling as a city as New York, it certainly has a hurried quality to it every once in a while. Getting out, even for a day, for some country roads, and extra Texan accents does a girl good-- and what better to do to cure that than to visit an Ice Cream factory? I highly recommend it. With tours being only 45 minutes long, there is certainly enough time to explore all of the antique stores and bluebonnet fields surrounding the area. And, with your tour, you even get a free scoop of ice cream. Sounds sweet.
