Dairy Queen – That’s What I Like About Memories

Dairy Queen is one of those places that brings back so many memories.


Being from a small town meant that there was not a stop light, and Dairy Queen was one of the only places to eat.

I associate it with being a child, being an adult, and being a mom.


I have very vivid, special memories surrounding the day that I found out I was pregnant with all of the littles.




With Summer, I arrived at my parent’s house one August day and realized, “I think that I am pregnant.”  I had never been away from Sean when I found out I was pregnant, and I did not want to be this time, either.  I snuck away to call him and let him know my suspicions.  He agreed to go to the store, buy a pregnancy test, and bring it with him when he arrived Saturday morning.

Needless to say, it was a long three days, dreaming of being pregnant but not knowing for sure.  The moment he arrived, I ran to him, gave him a hug, grabbed his bag, and went to the bathroom.  Sure enough, there was a positive sign.


We did not want to tell anyone yet, so we just savored the moment, knowing that we had a little secret that just the two of us knew about.

We drove back home that evening, talking and dreaming about the future with a third little bundle of joy.

That is where Dairy Queen comes into play.  We stopped there for dinner, and I enjoyed every bite while I dreamed about the future with my little family of four, which in 9 months would be a party of five.


On our way to my parent’s house this week, I took the littles to eat at that exact Dairy Queen.  As I looked across the table at all of them, my eyes landed on Summer, realizing that she had completed our family in such a special way.


That Dairy Queen will always hold special memories.  It was just the beginning of special memories, wonderful dreams of a future with the baby growing inside of me joining us to complete our happy family.

    It is a special place for all of us. Even if the kids aren’t wanting to eat they think they have to stop in Goldthwaite at DQ.

    In some countries, especially those with small numbers of animals being milked, as well as harvesting the milk from an animal, the dairy may also process the milk into butter, cheese and yogurt, for example. This is a traditional method of producing specialist milk products, especially in Europe.**
