Ice Cream Sundaes for Two

Happy Mail for my sweet niece Zoe!

Earlier this summer, while I was on vacation visiting my family, I promised my niece that I’d take her out on adventure and that we’d go out on a date for ice cream.  Sadly my trip was so short that we didn’t have time to squeeze in our date.

 I’m hoping this will make it up to her!

My favorite part of this surprise— I tucked ice cream jokes and cash into the mini (cleaned out) Ben & Jerry’s containers.

On our last day of summer vacation we decided to knock off one last thing from our Summer Fun List!  We didn’t even get close to completing all our projects.  There is always next summer!

Twenty-five cents for a cup of love and joy.
Pretty good deal, huh?!
