It’s happened…it’s officially the last week of August. My morning commute was further slowed by the snail-like pace of school buses and this morning’s Facebook feed was dominated with first day of school pictures.
I refuse to give up on summer so quickly though. We’re going to sneak in one last family trip down to Ocean City so that we can celebrate the end of the season with sleeping in, sand and an all-you-can-eat crab feast. I’ll definitely be posting some fun vacation pictures in the near future – possibly even including Ollie’s first trip (that we know of) to the beach.
Until we pack up and leave for our trip, we’re having a bit of a mini celebration at home by eating lots of shaved ice snowballs and Italian ice while the roadside stands are still open. We’ve also been enjoying ice cream at home and I thought I’d share my super easy and tasty treat with you all:
Step 2: Add a couple scoops of mint chocolate chip ice cream.
Step 3: Scoot your dog aside on the couch, curl up under your blanket and enjoy your treat while watching trashy TV (VMAs anyone?). Yum!
So speaking of ice cream… let’s have an End of Summer Giveaway!
