When it comes to the summer, the ONLY dessert my kids want to eat is ice cream. It’s pretty unanimous across the board. Ice cream cools them down. Ice cream fills them up. Ice cream is something they enjoy. Ice cream makes everyone happy. I’m all about it because it’s something that I enjoy, too! The funny thing is that because there are so many flavors, everyone in my house likes a different one!
