You guys! I got to go to the Museum of Ice Cream!!!
So my mother recently turned 60. It dawned on me a few months back that this was happening soon, and I've had a difficult time processing it. My mom has always been in good health, and anyone who knows her knows that she is SUCH A CHILD AT HEART. Anyone who knows her also knows, that she loves ice cream more than anyone you've ever met.
So when I heard about this museum, founded by 25 year-old Maryellis Bunn, I looked into it and decided I just had to take her. So my sister and I got some tickets for us and my nieces (the stinking adorable little girls in these photos) and we took my mom last week as a surprise.
She had no clue what to expect, had never even heard of it, and she absolutely loved it as we ventured into each of the brilliant rooms! The museum was EXACTLY as described in their "About" tab on their website. It's a place that makes you feel like a kid again, especially when you get to go for a swim in that glorious sprinkle pool. (It's been almost a week and my mother is STILL talking about the sprinkle pool!) I personally loved how much artistic creativity went into each room, by artists such as Abel Benton.
The staff was wonderful as well. All decked in pink, they enthusiastically welcomed us into each room, sharing bits and pieces about the room itself and the goodies that came with it! Oh, and I can't forget to mention, we got to indulge in some pretty delicious ice creams and other sweets, from some LA favorites like Salt & Straw, McConnell's, and Little Damages.
I'd love to tell you more about this fantastic place, but I'd hate to spoil too much for those who have yet to go. I don't know if any more dates or tickets will be made available in Los Angeles, but keep an eye on this museum when they're on the move and make it a goal to go! It's a must!
