Ready for Summer


I start looking for the ICE CREAM FAIRY along about May.
I love ice cream all the time but ESPECIALLY 
SUMMERTIME  ICE CREAM....
NOTHING says summer like a big bowl of ICE CREAM.
CHERRY PIE and VANILLA BEAN ICE CREAM
is  HAAAARD  to beat.
 I like SHERBERT as much as ice cream...
the limes and oranges and lemons.....ummmmm





Not sure how THIS photo of cute flowers got mixed in here....maybe it's the sherbert colors?
I wish I REALLY owned an ice cream company....
Wouldn't that be a good thing to own !!
The above sundae was made by one of the twins a few years back.
 A  COFFEE milkshake.....
my fav....
Glass of coffee ice cream, a cap full of Vanilla
and fill it up with milk....
O HONEY



AND, OF COURSE....

The Infamous
ROOT BEER FLOAT
or
COKE FLOAT....
which ever
FLOATS YOUR BOAT.
:>)













 
Another favorite ice cream treat is
RASPBERRY SHERBERT with 7-UP...
It is so tasty and sooo refreshing and I wish I had one this very minute. :)


...another SUMMERTIME treat...

CATE
the great grandgirl....
Her little face SAYS  IT  ALL....
she seems to be thinking.....
"I'm so ready for summertime FUN."

I hope you have an

Your coffee milkshake sounds really good BJ! Think I'll have to give that a try:@)

Kathleen Grace said...

The coffee shake sounds wonderful! I love iced coffee too, soI know the shake would hit the spot. My grandmothers specialty was vanilla ice cream with 7-up pured over, very light and refreshing on a hot day. It was our treat after we mowed the lawn or came in fromt he field on a hot day:>)

Robin@DecoratingTennisGirl said...

Yums, Beeej! I might have to splurge and make one of those coffe milkshakes!!! Love you blog header, too.

Glad you are enjoying the movie stars! :)

Valerie Snap-Peas said...

That coffee milkshake is going to happen here real soon - thanks for the suggestion!

One of my grandfathers was an ice cream man - a kids dream come true :-) I still love the sparkle bars.

Beverly said...

Um, yum! It all looks cool and refreshing. I love the coffee flavor and I love mango sorbet.

Just look at your Cate. She is a doll!♥

Patty Patterson said...

I love ice cream, too! I've requested a Cuisinart Soft Serve ice cream machine for my birthday. We'll see how that goes. People around here don't always listen - but if I don't get it, I'll buy one! :-) Because I like ice cream cones and it dispenses them! :-)

Gina said...

I think I'm going to be dreaming of that raspberry sherbert float! Yum!

Congrats to Linda!

Hi Bj!

I know I mentioned this last week but I think you new header/banner is the cutest one yet. I know it has to be the little birds....

All that ice cream has given me a craving, and it is 8:30 in the morning! Shame on you for making me want sweets again.

Your little Cate is the sweetest part of your post! I will have my 1st GREAT grand baby in August... a little girl!

Thanks for sharing at my party this week :)

I love Root Beer floats. My Grandpa used to make them in the summer and we would sit on the porch on those hot metal chairs watching the world go by. I tell you, those memories can't get much better!

Designs By Pinky said...

Oh BJ, I love ice cream too!!! I would eat it every single day and night if I didn't think that would KILL me:) The raspberry sherbert and 7up sounds GREAT!!! I will try that soon. XO, Pinky

What a SWEET post- I got the ice cream maker out to make ice cream with the grands the other day and the thing would not work properly. I was so disgusted. I need to get a new one- xo Diana

Blue Bell is the best. "We sell all we can and eat the rest". LOL

Ann said...

BJ, your ice cream pictures are tantilizing. I really want a big rootbeer float right now. I have so many memories of making home-made icecream at the lake as a girl. We would add all kinds of flavors. YUM.

Sweet Tea said...

We've been having Rootbeer Floats in the evening. I've got to stop it before it becomes another bad habit, but they are so darn good!...My hub's family makes the best Banana ic I have ever tasted. Soooooo good!

Pat's Pink Apron said...

She's a cutey pie. Looks like she's going to have a good time. I want to try that Bluebell icecream out. I've heard it's good.

PEA said...

Hello dear BJ:-)

I'm finally back to blogging and visiting and it feels good!! Sure missed all of you.

I love ice cream as well and have been making myself smoothies and milkshakes a lot lately. When I was at the grocery store the other day, I couldn't get over all the various flavours ice cream comes in now...I want to buy them all! lol I've never had a coffee milkshake, though...hmmmmm!!!! xoxo

Balisha said...

I made root beer floats last night...first of the year. These are my favorite way to eat ice cream. Paula Deen made a coffee and ice cream sundae on her show this week. A few scoops of ice cream, pour coffee along the side of the ice cream, drizzle with choc. sauce, top with real whipped cream, and a cherry of course. Her husband said it was the best cup of coffee he'd ever had.
Your new header is so cute...I love it.

The French Hutch said...

bj, your ice cream treats look so good you should have your own bj's ice cream parlor! The coffee shake would be perfect for this very hot late afternoon. Cate is a little movie star………….

You've made me hungry for cherry pie with ice cream, BJ! What a delicious post!

Doll in the Looking Glass said...

Oh, yum! I'll enjoy a root beer float from your ice cream shop.

Thanks for stopping by my post, introducing yourself and following me. I have returned the follow.

I am located in Midland, Michigan so it may be a while until I can stop by in person!

Vee said...

Your little great grandgirlie's swimsuit is so cute and she's so cute.

How can you discuss ice cream? Hmmm??? The coffee shake can be made with fewer calories if you use iced coffee instead of milk for liquid. ;> Do you care? I think not!

craftyles said...

Love all the ice cream-I'm screaming for it . My son's name is BJ-so of coarse I love that picture. Cate is sure a cutie!

middle child said...

I just discovered a new and now all time favorite ice cream flavor. Got it at a Lobster place in Florida. The flavor it.........Birthday Cake! OMG!

~~Carol~~ said...

Nothing says summer like ice cream and a kiddie pool! That's such a great shot of your granddaughter splashing away. And congrats to Linda, the nicest gal in blogland!
Happy REDnesday,
Carol

We have a little place here that is only open from late March until October. They have ice cream, but also the best nonfat frozen yogurt and it actually tastes good. I have started bringing home quarts of it so that I don't have to drive across town every time I have a craving! My favorite, if I could have anything I wanted...Chocolate almond ice cream with hot fudge and real whipping cream! Yummo!

On Crooked Creek said...

BJ,
Slow down, dear friend...it's a whole month until Summer officially begins! My favorite is the A & W Frosty Mug Taste..Root Beer Float!!! As a child, my folks would take us to a local ice cream establishment...The Purple Cow...Grape pop over ice cream! Don't knock it if you haven't tried it! It's delicious!!!
Fondly,
Pat
P.S. Move over Cate...make room for GG,BJ!!! She's adorable!!!
