Vanilla Ice Cream Day
In my opinion...
Best?  My Grandpa's Homemade! Here's our family recipe - I have more memories than I can keep track of with the sound of the ice cream maker churning in the garage during family get togethers. YUM!
Vanilla Ice Cream
1 quart half and half
¾ cup sugar
*1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Place in an ice cream maker.
*Could also substitute in peppermint extract and peppermint candy pieces.

Next Best?  Kirkland Vanilla

Best Soft Vanilla in my town?  Rizuto's 

Vanilla is my favorite - it's simple, uncomplicated, and delicious.
Are you a fan or a 'hater' of vanilla?  

Gorgeous Grandma Day

When I was younger my Grandma Ashley would let me lay on her lap and she would "tickle" my face and back while I was there. Confession: At age 41, I still have days I wish I could lay on her lap and have her do that! *wink*

My Grandma Wells was a square dancer and she had tons of square dancing skirts and I remember spending time at her house playing dress up with those skirts and seeing how far they could twirl out. I loved them!

My Mama is a great, and gorgeous, Grandma. She has invested herself (and my Dad's money - haha) into her grandkids - whether they live down the road from her or across the country.  I am so grateful for my children's Grandma and grateful I can call her Mama.

I hope you have a Grandma person in your life that gives you some good memories.  It doesn't have to be a Grandma by relation, families come to us in all sorts of ways!
