You guys said you didn't mind pics...you might regret that. :)
We have a tradition of starting and ending the summer with shaved ice. We only get it twice a year. And, we always wait for darkness to fall before eating it outside on the driveway (I learned that Blue Raspberry stains carpets).
So...I invite you to pull up a chair and enjoy the Possum Family's "End of Summer" evening. If you click on the slideshow and watch it at picasa, you'll get the captions.
