Day 25: Ice Cream King

Hi friends!

I can't believe we're almost to the end of the month! I hope you have been having as much fun as we have!

Today's book is another library favorite, The Ice Cream King by Steve Metzger. It's a cute story about a little boy who get's to have his own ice cream world, but discovers that it's no fun without someone to share it with.
We have a tradition around here called Daddy Queen (like Dairy Queen, if you're not familiar). My dad started it when I was little, and now we're passing it on to Matt. Basically, instead of going out for fancy ice cream treats, you take a trip to the grocery store and stock up on all sorts of ice cream and goodies. Making your own fancy ice cream is so much more fun!

What could be better than seeing all of these goodies and knowing that you get to pick whatever you want for your ice cream. This is certainly not an every night dessert, but it's fun every once in a while.

Abbey chose Strawberry ice cream with pretzel M&Ms, brownie pieces, chocolate syrup and whipped cream.

Mommy went with strawberry ice cream, brownies, strawberries and whipped cream.

and Daddy doesn't believe that fruit and ice cream should go together (he's obviously wrong), so he went with vanilla ice cream, brownies, M&Ms, chocolate/caramel syrup and whipped cream.

Now, dig in!


Just joining in? Make sure you check out the rest of the series!

Be blessed!
