The Dog Days are Over & a $25 Target G.C. Giveaway


2013-06-23 18.54.052013-08-16 15.24.18

The dog days of summer are officially over at my house.  Within less than a  24 hour time span the temperature dropped from a humid 85 degrees to a crisp 46 degrees.  Welcome to Minnesota!:) Luckily before the autumn weather was upon us we managed to enjoy a few more summer days.

Highlights of the season include running under the sprinkler, swimming lessons, nature camp, an epic ocean-bound family vacation, and of course enjoying a few sweet treats.  School has started and with it brings a multitude of responsibilities- homework, volunteer commitments, and a more intense work schedule.

We have tried a multitude of Popsicles this summer.  My kids are big fans of the frozen yogurt variety- Swirlz.  But most frequently I purchased the traditional variety for the family.  Well, except my husband still depends a box of the Jolly Rancher kind for himself.

2013-08-16 15.19.55

After supper was consumed my little guys would ask for a treat…..aka a Popsicle.  It was such fun to see their eyes light up when they saw which flavor was under the wrapper.  Each of us has their preferred flavor.  Doesn’t everybody? Orange, cherry, grape, but my kid’s all time favorite was the mystery flavor.  They loved trying to guess flavor based solely on taste.
