Like a Kid in a Candy Store

Quite literally.

I think Jason was feeling a little bad about being gone so much and told the kids that we would go to the candy shop down the street. Can you think of much else that would get kids outragously excited? We may as well told them that we won the lottery. Walking in the door, Grady starts in with the "WOW! Whoa! Oh man!" It is so funny. Jason actually lets each kid get their own basket and get whatever they want. Which really is not as bad as you would guess. They all only pick a few things(with the exception of Grady, but we just kept pulling stuff out of his basket when he wasn't looking)

Its funny because the kids always pick out gummy and sour stuff, then want the homemade fudge and chocolates that Jason and I get. I really like the cooler wall with all the unique drinks (real diet root beer!) and sodas. There is this carbonated orange juice that is so so good.
We adore this place. The owners are really great people. So nice and generous too. Last year I won a $25 gift basket and you should have seen that thing. The kids thought they died and went to Heaven. And they don't even bat an eyelash at crazy kids. I guess that what you sign up for when opening a candy store.
So if you are in the area, stop in there. Such an awesome, fun kid friendly place. I hope more businesses like this open in Lakeside.

We stopped there after a few beach days over the summer. We loved it. My thought was why had we not stopped here before. We seriously would walk out of there with a huge bag full of candy for like 7 bucks And yes, the owners were pretty amazing and how they handled all the kids and customers. So, I would have to agree if you have not been there you should check it out.
