Adventure 1/50 was a family affair. Several of my family members met me at the Foreign Candy Company Outlet Store on Saturday, August 10, 2019. We scoured the store looking for fun and interesting candy to fill our baskets. I purchased mostly chocolate bars but everyone else picked up sour chewy candies. It is such a fun place to stop because you give yourself permission to be like a kid and get the yard long bubble gum or the spaceship wafers. You also realize that you don't have to purchase a lot of candy and for 20 minutes you just had fun.
Out in the parking lot of the candy store it was time to make a decision; go get ice cream at the Wells Blue Bunny Visitor Center & Ice Cream Parlor or eat supper first and then ice cream. Jack, the sensible one, suggested supper first and then ice cream. We decided to try the Iowa BBQ Company in Le Mars, IA. This was a good decision. If anyone is headed to Le Mars I would suggest eating at the Iowa BBQ Company. I also suggest the Ribeye Brisket with Mac & Cheese and Corn Bread.
Stop 3: The Wells Visitor Center & Ice Cream Parlor in
The newly renovated visitor center & ice cream parlor was a good way to end the first adventure. Here some of us got the Molten Lava Chocolate Extreme Shake while others got fun flavors of ice cream and cones. Jack enjoyed the most colorful ice cream flavors; Cotton Candy & Rocky Road. Gabe enjoyed his chocolate face until his daddy got out the wet wipes to clean him up.
Thank you family for joining me on my official first of 50 adventures.
I wanted to mark my upcoming 50th birthday in a special way. After thinking about this for a long time I am putting my plan into action. I am going to go on 50 adventures over the next 2 years to celebrate my 50th birthday. I am inviting family and friends to join me on any or all of the adventures. Some are going to be big, some will be small, but all will be fun.
