Brennan's Ice Cream

We had a visit from the ice cream van and Mr Rogan spoke to us about the importance of being safe and taking care when getting an ice cream and around the van. We know to never stand behind the van because the driver can't see us and to look and listen as we carefully cross the road to get the van. Then we got to enjoy some yummy ice cream!
