Ice Cream Social

Carol and Elizabeth were having a perfectly lovely ice cream party with a couple of friends, when Elizabeth remarked that she had heard of a wondrous place where a Giant Ice Cream Sunday resided. So off they went to look for it. Never let it be said that they would be satisfied with a little ice cream when they could have a lot.

Here they are - having found the magical enormous ice cream.

"Wait, Elizabeth, what are you doing?"

"Hurry on up, Carol, this is yummy"

And so, our story ends, as Carol and Elizabeth enjoy endless spoonfuls of strawberry surprise, thinking not of the spoonfuls of Mylanta that may come later this evening.

If we cannot eat all the ice cream we want, how about paper ice cream cones. Then we can have as much as we want. These cones were stamped 3 times each. The bottom cone part was colored with watercolor pencils and the ice cream was stamped on patterned paper and glued to the original cone.

This is Elizabeth's grandson, Blakie, who is 20 months. I babysat him this past Saturday and we played in his backyard. Papa came over with homemade ice cream ( leftover from the 4th) and you can see that Blakie is very fond of ice cream. Oh, yeah!

"More, please"
It was nice that the hose and his little pool were handy for clean-up.

This is Carol's grandson enjoying an ice cream at Snookies in Des Moines. Looks yummy!

Hard to beat freckles and ice cream on a summer's day.

I think he would like to have one as big as the one in the corner.

This is the ice cream bowl and spoon that I gave my husband in 1986. From then on, everytime he had ice cream, he used this bowl and spoon.
