I scream you scream...

...we all scream for ice cream!

Brenham, TX, is home to the third largest ice cream producer in the United States: Blue Bell Ice Cream. We went on the factory tour our first day here-- and sampled delicious, creamy flavors at 9:00am! My favorite was watching the ice cream sandwich machine in operation... yum, yum.

We've spent the week preparing for Mexico, and closing out our first part of our US tour. Our show on Good Friday had a much better turnout than we expected, and I was surprised to run into a girl we had traveled with in 1997 and hadn't seen since... Stacy Grange! It was fun to catch up with her-- she drove down from College Station for the show.

And yesterday we went over our final procedures for crossing the border- we are taking the buses to about a block away, then unloading everything and walking over the border. We re-load on two Mexican buses on the other side, which have about half of the luggage space of our current ones. It is going to be an adventure!
