Everyone Screams for Great Ice Cream

For my family, there aren’t many problems ice cream can’t solve. Tough day at the office or school? Root beer floats are the answer. Painful shots at the pediatrician? Ice cream cone is the remedy. And on a no-good-very-bad-day when everyone is in a funk, I’ll loudly declare that it’s Ice Cream in the Bathtub Day and serve ice cream to my little girls. Yes, in the bathtub. It works like a charm. They giggle and laugh and everyone feels better.

A Truckload of Savings

An ice cream truck passed by our old house nearly every day from March through October. My daughter didn’t know exactly what it was, only that its music served as her soundtrack as she twirled around the living room. Besides not wanting to fend off pleas for ice cream every afternoon, I also didn’t want to overspend on terrible ice cream – with unknown ingredients.
