My father started this tradition.
And, my husband and I stole it right out from under him.
Every Sunday, we all bike over to the nearest ice cream store.
It's about a 10 minute bike ride.
The kids get so excited.
They run around and sing, “Ice Keem, Ice Keem” over and over.
Well, at the least the ones that talk, do!
What kid doesn't love ice cream?
Before we go, we dress the kids in their rattiest clothes.
Why, you ask?
Have you ever seen 3 kids eating ice cream?
It gets pretty ugly. Quickly.
Not only do they get it all over themselves, they also always manage to dribble some of it on me and my husband, too!
My husband thinks we should dress the kids in garbage bags.
And, while I do find the idea slightly ingenious, I tell him NO - we get enough stares as it is.

Here's a fun song and coloring page to get you into the mood.
It's perfect for days as sunny and warm as we've been getting.
I hope your family traditions are less messy than ours, but just as much fun!

P.S. Bring plenty of baby wipes. So much more effective than napkins!
