This past week was my younger son, Jakob's birthday.  Yesterday we celebrated (again) with 2 games of Lazer Tag, and then ice cream for him and his friends at Mortensen's Ice Cream in Newington, CT.

They have over a dozen *homemade* ice creams and at least 15 different toppings to choose from.  All of them had a blast with all the choices.  They a 12 scoop sundae, 24 scoop sundae.. and the ultimate

200 SCOOP WHEELBARROW SUNDAE

I think this has got to be one of the LARGEST sundaes ever.  So, if you have a birthday party, little league, sweet 16th celebration.. anything where there are a lot of people you can have one MAMOUTH SUNDAE... oh, did I mention.... you get to keep the wheelbarrow?

HISTORY OF MORTENSEN'S

Mortensen's was founded in 1915 with Elmer Mortensen delivering milk door to door by horse and wagon.

After having farms in Simbury, CT and Bloomfield, CT, he and his wife Joan moved to their farm in Newington, CT.  Along with their seven children, they soon made Mortensen's A familiar landmark on the Berlin Turnpike.  The whole *FAMILY* of cows were hard to miss grazing on the roof of their dairy Bar.

In 1976 they opened their present location, and began to make their own homade ice cream on the premisies.

Just as Elmer persisted in processing the best milk possible they are dedicated to serving the finest food and all natural ice cream anywhere!

Below are some more pictures I took.
