Cousin Day + Hand Mixed Ice Cream

Lily invited her cousin Grace up for a cousin day today. So far they've had a picnic, gone swimming, taken a bath, had a snack, watched a movie and eaten ice cream! When I told Randy all that they had been doing, he said: "I want to be four again." Haha. Being a kid is pretty great. And being a kid at the beginning of summer? Well, that is just about the best thing in the whole wide world.
I mentioned in another post that I hand mixed some ice cream Cold Stone style for dessert one night. It's right smack dab between hard pack ice cream and a shake. It's totally yummy. I made raspberries 'n' cream for the girls. I scooped vanilla ice cream out onto my cutting board and placed a few fresh raspberries on top, then just scooped and smashed the ice cream until it was mixed. 
Cute cuzzies.
And for me, I mixed in some lemon cookies. It was pretty naughty. 
I'm looking forward to trying some more kinds of hand mixed ice creams this summer. Here are some topping ideas dancing around my brain:

marshmallow creme
 caramel sauce
roasted/salted nuts
shredded coconut
any fresh or frozen fruit
peanut butter
oreos- mint, golden and regular (no brainer)
candy bars
lemon and lime zest (WORD TO YOUR MOM!)
And the list goes on...

Hope your Wednesday is going swell, dudes. Thanks for popping in!
