The Last Sunday Sundae of National Ice Cream Month

Happy National Ice Cream Month!

SundaySundae

Today was the last Sunday of National Ice Cream Month, so we just had to venture out for some frozen confection. It’s be a shame if we didn’t.

It was recommended that we visit Zoyo Neighborhood Yogurt. (It is where Spoonz used to be located at on Thomas Road by Target.)

I know this technically isn’t ice cream, but they had Cake Batter froyo! My favorite! I haven’t been able to find it since Yum Yums moved to Wisconsin. And, fresh fruit! Whipped cream is available upon request, but it is not on the topping bars.

Whippy Dippin’ for Dinner

Happy National Ice Cream Month!

With Lily at camp for the week, this week has been all about Navy. Tomorrow, I go pick up Lily, so Navy and I are having one last little bit of fun, just the two of us!

After getting gas, we headed to Monroeville. Navy wasn’t sure why because it was a surprise. The only thing he knew was that we were going out for dinner. Continue reading

Fishing with Navy

It was just us tonight. Doug had to work a double, so he wasn’t able to deal with all of my fishing pole issues. I hate open reel poles. Things do not go well for me.

Navy and I did got an get some new bobbers, weights, and crappie bait. I seem to have misplaced my tackle box. Not sure if I should look for it, or just put a new one together in the meantime. Ah, the joys of having moved recently! Continue reading

Fishing with My Guys

Another day of spending extra time with Navy. I can already tell that this is exactly what his little soul needed.

Tonight, we went fishing. The pond was peaceful. The scenery was amazing. The company was awesome. We really didn’t have much luck, we threw back the one decent bluegill that was in our bucket.

Navy was so happy to be out at the pond that he didn’t want to leave, in spite of the mosquitoes and setting sun. He also got some fishing time in with his cousin, who just happened to show up. It was nice for two guys to be fishing together, and Navy loved catching fish with his cousin.

Home for a ridiculously late dinner. We had not planned on spending that long out at the pond, but Navy had such a great time. I really hope we can get some more fishing in before summer ends and/or the kids go back to school.

Hot Diggity Dog

Happy National Hot Dog Month!

Since Lily is at camp this week, we had dinner at one of Navy’s favorite places, Coney Dog Cafe.

Navy ordered his usual, a plain hot dog and chips. I got my usually, a Chicago dog!

It is so hard to find a decent Chicago dog, especially outside of a sports venue. I usually get one when we go to a baseball game, but I was so happy to find a local Chicago dog that didn’t come with the price of admission.

We both ordered root beer floats. There’s just something about root beer and hot dogs that go together. And, you can never go wrong with ice cream!

We haven’t been able to visit this place as much as we used to. Navy and I have made it our special spot. We’ve been going here together since we was 4 and in preschool.

National Ice Cream Day

Happy National Ice Cream Day!

Today, we took Lily to Girl Scout camp, so we stopped along the way to celebration National Ice Cream Day. It also happens to be National Ice Cream Month!

We went to yo 2 go in Columbia City. Yes, it’s frozen yogurt, and not technically ice cream, but we haven’t been here in forever!

I have tried the Vanilla and Orange Sorbet.  I really wish that they would have Cake Batter on my visits. Their topping selection doesn’t have all of the fresh fruits that I would like, but there are other goodies that make up for it (mini peanut butter cups, lots of different nuts, crushed Butterfingers).

I love that they have higher quality spoons that we can take home and wash, as opposed to the plastic spoons that many places have. We save our spoons from each visit. The kids love using them at home.

I also really love that this is a small town, family owned business. They started it due to their own son’s dairy allergy.  There’s the sweet story here.

Sunday Sundae on a Monday

Happy National Ice Cream Month!

Just Cream - Ice Cream Boutique

Yesterday was so busy and exhausting that we were too tired after our guests left. We didn’t want to drag two kids out for ice cream. National ice cream month or not. It was not worth it.

I’m glad we waited.

I asked around for some recommendations for unique ice cream spots that we hadn’t been to yet. The Internet never disappoints!

My only complaint was that we went at a peak time, around 7pm. While there wasn’t a line to get ice cream, all of the indoor seating was full. We sat outside, thankfully, it wasn’t hot or humid.

I really wish that I would have looked at the menu a little more in-depth before ordering. I went strictly with an ice cream cone in mind. I completely ignored their coffee offerings! I definitely need to make a return trip to try those!
