Trace ice cream social, happy hour at Olive & June

another slow and quiet week at AMH.  I was busy rebuilding cabinetry in the vintage airstream in anticipation of a quick camping trip.  Kat pledged to work both Saturday and Sunday in preperation to take off work monday, for the camping trip.  I spent the weekend working in the hot aluminum camper (airstream).  but, something came up at work and we had to cancel the trip.  resulting in a week without an end... 

I did manage a short break to run the boys down to the W Hotel Restaurant, TRACE.  they hosted an  ice cream social benefiting Safe Place.  we brought in some school supplies to donate, they set us loose on the ice cream buffet.

Executive Pastry Chef Janina O'Leary had many delicious frozen treats for us to enjoy.  we really appreciated the hospitality, the people at TRACE always treat us well.
