dates and dinosaurs

(tried a little editing to make it look like it's on old picture)
All plans were cancelled this Sunday after Ella got sick, so we had a whole day to make our own little adventure. Andy had been wanting to go out to the desert to scout something out so we decided to make a day of it. It's date season (who knew?) in the desert. I didn't think I even liked dates. I think the only dates I have ever had are the dates in some trail mixes and I usually just pick over them. Last year in one of my magazines I read a little hype about date shakes so we had to give it a try. Shield's has been around since 1924 and the shakes are beyond delicious. I am converted!
Every date product you could ever think of can be found here.
What dates look like before they are dried.
Waiting patiently for their date shakes.
Worth the wait.
Made some friends in the desert.
Fun little day in the desert.

  1. I have always wanted to stop by the dinosaur place! And I had no idea dates start out yellow!?! Looks like a fun day.


Thanks for stopping by!
