What are your fond memories of this place?

This takes me back to such a wonderful time in my childhood...a time that seems so perfect in my memory...makes me SO sad that it isn't here for my children, but after they were laughing at this video, I think they don't deserve it....now (and don't you ever tell them I said this) the video is kinda funny...everyone didn't look this funny when we were little...

Remember any of this?


I found this among my things:


The pictures are so small, it is hard to read, but remember the Pig Trough? Didn't people who finished this on their own get a ribbon that said, "I made a pig of myself at Farrell's" ?

THe Hot Fudge Nutty Nutty was probably our favorite...or a butterscotch shake...mmmm...okay, I am in happy place right now...

So, is there a place your family always went to for birthdays or special occasions? Do you have a particular memory that is just IT for you?

Makes me think...one day, God will wipe away every tear...there will be no more sadness, no more sin, we will have great joy worshipping at the feet of our Savior...now I don't know much about what is going to happen in heaven and I am not going to even think about it...we couldn't even think up anything as good as what God has for His people in eternity. Gives us hope to keep on when your house is falling apart and a good friend is dying of cancer and you need a $2,000 repair on your car and you just got paid and you have $5 to last for two weeks and you fill in your details...I'm just making them up as I go...cling to the cross of Christ dear ones...one thing I know...it's better than any hot fudge nutty nutty!

We used to visit one in the Renton area when I was very young. The same one my dad asked my mom to marry him at. I'd forgotten all about Farrell's! Brought back good memories :)

I loved Farrell's! Do you remember the long candy parlor on the way in (and out)? It was great, We definitely went there for birthdays. Fun times. Thanks for the reminder!
