We just got back from a few glorious days spent at Santa Rosa Beach on the Gulf Coast of Florida. We were only there for a couple of days but the memories we made will definitely last a lifetime. The girls were all about spending time on the beach. While there weren’t a lot of seashells to be found, we searched for sand dollars and crabs!
There was also plenty of sand castle building, swimming, and a fun game that my husband shared they used to play in the Philippines when he was younger.
They each made a ball of sand, trying to make the strongest one, and dug out a small ramp. Each person would put their toughest sand ball at the top and would roll down the ramp at the same time. Whichever person’s ball was left standing after the collision was the winner.
While the game is relatively simple, it was a great way to share past life experiences and open up conversations about my husband’s childhood in the Philippines. Not surprisingly is these conversations always seem to turn to food because it plays such an important part in life, right?! One of his other favorites stories to tell is climbing mango trees and picking just ripened fruit from the tree to eat.
This story is the inspiration behind my OREO flavor creation! In case you haven’t heard, OREO is holding a super fun sweepstakes for consumers to share their OREO Creations. Time at the beach with my family, and hubby’s stories of his childhood in the Philippines has definitely inspired me to create a Mango Sherbet OREO!
