Here’s the link for the Plymouth County Mosquito Control as well so you can call and have your yard sprayed.  It’s also a good idea to go around your yard and make sure there’s no standing water anywhere as mosquitos can breed in that.  Please keep you & your kids safe!

Cruise + Ice Cream = FUN!

IMG_1225 Once again, we did the ice cream cruise out of Plymouth harbor and  had a ton of fun!  We had GREAT weather last night!  Once the boat leaves dock, they start the make your own sundae bar (and there’s usually enough for seconds!)  Chocolate or vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and the toppings of your choice!  After the sundaes are done, it’s time to boogie down!  The kids do the limbo and then can dance, dance, dance.   It’s a great time to get pretty family pictures or kids pictures while the sun is setting too! 

IMG_1286 The ice cream cruise is a “must do” during the summer!  Lobster Tales runs the cruises during the summer on Wednesday and Friday in July & August 7-8:30pm.  (Or you can do what we did and charter the boat for 50 of your closest friends)  Tickets are $15 for adults and $13 for kids under 12.  It’s best to make reservations…give them a call at 508-746-5342. Check out their website for more info about the ice cream

cruise or the other cruises they run like the Pirate Cruise or the Wine tasting Cruise.  You can also find them on facebook.
