A few years ago I was walking through Sam’s Club when I spotted an incredible deal – a bright orange ice cream maker for only $14.99! It was the middle of summer, and it was so unbelievably hot, so I snatched it up and came right home to start looking for ice cream recipes.
I quickly ran into a problem – I couldn’t find any ice cream recipes that were simple enough for my (then) three-year-old to help make. All of the recipes I found either called for eggs, needed to be cooked, or both. Now, I don’t know about you, but I have found eggs to be the absolute worst kitchen mess to clean up – and my kid has a knack for dropping them on the floor. Plus, try telling a kid you’re going to make ice cream, but you need to wait five hours for the mixture to cool. See how well that one goes over…
Friday is the start to our weekend, and I always plan something fun for us to do. Over the summer, we went to bounce houses, sprayscapes, beaches, plays, movies, miniature golf and more. All in the name of Fun Day Friday.
Fun Day Friday started as an accident. The Goose was taking swim classes every Friday morning, and we always ended up heading over to McDonald’s for lunch immediately after. I was tired of always doing the same thing, so one week I decided to change things up. I took The Goose to Subway for lunch and then to the park for a playdate with a few of his friends from school.
