Reuben is in love with this ice cream. I think he was pretty happy that I had to test the recipe several times to get it just right.
To make it even better, this has a no-cook ice cream base – less time in the kitchen! AND there’s a no-churn option if you don’t happen to own an ice cream maker.
I feel like we had an early start to summer. June was hot right off the bat. So we spent as many afternoons as we could at the beach. Reuben’s family lives right on a lake, so we definitely took advantage of that. 😊
I made popcorn and smoothies for us to eat while we watched the parade. 😋
As we have for all 12 years, we attended the annual Lake Itasca Family Music Festival that my uncle puts on. The kids loved the playground, picnic meals, miniature train rides, coloring contest, and more!
The county fair is pretty much a must-do on our summer list. The kids got free sunglasses, and we rode on the carousel (Helen also insisted on riding the mini roller coaster, even though she was terrified once it got going. Ha!).
You can see a short video of our trip to the county fair below:
So there’s just a peek at our busy summer. What have you been up to over the hot months? What are things that are on your must-do list every summer?
