The Prestons just couldn't help themselves. They had to purchase the ice cream truck for sale just down the street.
Marie Preston, The Polar Express: "One day the light bulb went off, and we thought what a great service to provide the community."
Looking inside the Polar Express, you can see the similarities in the staff's facial features. That's because this truck is run by the whole family.
Gregg Preston, The Polar Express: "With that we thought it was something our family could really do together."
The Preston's say passing out sweet treats, they're not only bonding as a family, but they're learning important life skills too.
Marie: "Great lessons like math skills and people skills, and they kind of rotate responsibilities."
From counting change, to customer service, the Prestons say the ice cream creates a building block for bonding the family with the community.
Gregg: "It's been an added connector for us, with the people we know."
It's a summer jam-packed with serving up sugary treats, but the Prestons say life couldn't be sweeter.
