Stay Cool this Summer with Ice Cream and Cold Treats in Lansing
When it comes to cooling off on a hot summer day I usually choose swimming while my sons and hubby usually choose parks. But – if there’s one thing we all agree on it’s saying yes to tasty ice cream and sorbet together. This will be especially helpful this year as swimming and splash pad options are few in our area.
You know that hunched over panting look that kids have after running and playing in 80+ degree weather? It’s so darn refreshing to get out of the baking heat and stand up straight again, with a cold treat in hand.
When we mention grabbing a tasty cold ice cream treat together as a family, their sweet little faces light back up again.
