We had our last day of school this week, and we are already feeling the Summer vibes. And the heat! In the South, we have two seasons, not four. It’s either hot, or it’s cold! Generally speaking, it’s mostly hot. They girls started breaking out the sprinkler during Spring Break! 

I had a total mom fail moment today. I checked JaMonkey out of school early because she had a doctors appointment that took me months to secure. As we were walking to the car, I got a call from the office to confirm my appointment for the following day. I checked her out of school an hour early on the last day of school. She was pretty upset with me. I tried using logic with her that it was no big deal, they were just watching a movie, but she is sad every year on the last day of school. There were tears, so I fixed them with ice cream. I had a free one thanks to my Sodapalooza cup from RaceTrac. Can you say lifesaver! The mom guilt was heavy, so I felt like I needed to do something. Swirl Word waffle cone to the rescue. 

One of our favorite things to do during the Summertime is to pop into RaceTrac in the mid afternoon when it is the hottest part of the day. We get a cold drink and a frozen treat from Swirl World. Our RaceTrac has an outdoor patio area that we sit on while we enjoy our treat. The best part is that Sodapalooza is going on so we can get freefills all summer long. Sodapalooza is from May 3 to July 31 and all you have to do is purchase a 2017 Sodapalooza cup. You can freefill that cup all summer long with your favorite fountain and frozen beverages! The limited-time-only cups are available at any RaceTrac location for just $11.99 and come with some great coupons (between $30 and $150 in exclusive coupons, depending on your location,) for free food items. The cups go quickly, so I suggest getting one as quickly as possible. They have a few colors to choose from, I saw a bunch of people already taking advantage of their cup while I was there. You can save $2 on your Sodapalooza cut when you download the RaceTrac app for iOS or Android devices. That’s unlimited refills all summer long for $9.99! 

What will you fill your cup with?
