    Surprised my 4 after school with a cone. Couldn’t believe there wasn’t a long line in the drive thru.

    I wish I could go. I miss DQ. Since COVID the inside of our DQ has still not reopened so the drive thru line is always backed up and so slow.

  7. MrsG

    I took myself and 2 kiddos to get cones after the zoo today. Spring break in AL woohoo!
