National Ice Cream Day~What's your flavor?

This holiday rates right up there with Christmas in our house, National Ice Cream Day.  What other day of the year gives you permission to eat ice cream?!  Well, I admit, ice cream is consumed in our house quite often, no need for a holiday.  But it's fun to celebrate!

Did you know, in 1984, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed July as National Ice Cream Month. He also established National Ice Cream Day as the third Sunday in the month. 

Loved that man.

The kids are digging their Rocky Road cones.

Ice cream is one dessert I don't mind letting my kids eat.  Yes, it does contain sugar and cream but it's base ingredient, milk, has loads of vitamins and nutrients.   

Not sure, yet what flavor I'll go for today....maybe Pistachio Almond, or Mocha Almond Fudge?? 
What will you have today??

The flavor of the day is chocolate-peanut butter.

Your ice cream (and kids) look great!

Ditto to your entire first paragraph.
This fellow dairy farm family enjoyed homemade malts in honor of the occasion.

I'm pretty old school when it comes to picking ice cream flavors, but id say French vanilla is my fav. Richard from Amish Stories.
