I took my oldest daughter to the Mayor's Summer Reading Challenge Grand Celebration at the downtown library last Sunday. They had so many different things there to entertain the kids.

While at the Grand Celebration we were offered something cold to try, something cold and delicious. It was from Rita's Ice. We could select either lemon ice or watermelon ice and we took the watermelon ice. This stuff was knock-your-socks off good. It's made with real fruit. It was so refreshing.
If you get a chance, stop by Rita's Ice over off Clifford & I-820W in west Fort Worth and try some for yourself.
