summer's sweet and simple pleasures ~ 3

Summer and Ice Cream just go together...

Summer heat warrants trips to the store for buckets of ice cream.

Favorites in this family are;

  • Vanilla (plain, yep that would be me with cold coffee remnants poured on top)
  • mouse tracks
  • butterscotch
  • fresh gelatos, almost any flavor will do
  • rolo
  • other assorted bits and flavors are additions like sauces, nuts, coconut and real fruit.
  • Always a good thing is chocolate! Chocolate anything.

But when we do have the mouse tracks, our children do this above!

They savor the little peanut butter cups, and munch on them at the end of their spooning activity from the bowl.

I laughed when I saw this son recently, obviously never growing too old for saving the best until last.

Ahhhh, the sweet and simple pleasure of observing another in deep celebration of his bowl filled with little treasures to savor for later.
