Often times, after we’ve spent the day at the swimming pool, my kids ask to stop by Sonic to complete our attempt at cooling down from the hot summer weather. Slushies are on their minds, so with my arm fully twisted, we buzz through the drive-through on our way home. My kids have their favorites; anything blue for my son, cherry, grape and strawberry for the girls. For me, I always order the cherry limeade; Read More »
