It was an ordinary week night...except they were told that they were going to go to an ice cream party at the retirement home.
They had no idea what to expect. What was an ice cream party? But, these little ones were visibly excited.

The ice cream party was quite a simple event. It was to celebrate two special people, who had come home to visit with PaPaw's extended family. Actually, the fun of being together was the key, the ice cream bar and coffee, was secondary...but not to them. It was too good to be true...a few moments of unsupervised time, and in front of them were all the goodies.

Their dear aunt came to the rescue, helping each of them get a small bowl of the much anticipated ice cream, plus the toppings. What fun!



The newest family member was there, as well as the most mature member of the family members. Everyone was thrilled to see both of them, and obviously the two of them were happy to see each other. Love the little smiles.



It was too good to be true, across the table he reached to share his ice cream with her:)

The little one shared her aunt's ice cream...down to the very last drop.

I am sure that the next time they hear the words "ice cream party", it will be more anticipated than there this one was. For now, their daily sugar intake will be limited.
Thanks great-grandma for the ice cream party you shared with us.

Another precious post filled with good times shared with family. Your picture of the youngest family member smiling at the most mature family member is very touching. I just sat here and looked at it for a few minutes imagining how special it must have been to see it in person.
Thank you for sharing this lovely post and I wish you a wonderful weekend.

Hi Judy,

Lisa Shaw visited my blog for the first time and left a comment about your place here. She said I reminded her of you and left your blog name. Visiting with you I see we do have many similarities... Married almost the same number of years... daughters, grandchildren and a grateful heart toward the Lord. I saw the precious photos of you twin Grandbabies... I have twins too.

I have perused several of your posts and enjoyed getting to know you a bit.

Kindly, ldh

So very sweet! Your grands are so very precious! That picture of the little guy feeding his sister some of his ice cream is sooooo adorable. Seeing all these sweet and loving faces must have brought such joy to your mother-in-law!

Ice-cream and grands...the best of the season! You captured the moments...so sweet. Now I am wishing for a little 'ice-cream weather'!

Have a great weekend.

I love the photo of the baby smiling at your "most mature relative" - priceless. I hope someone prints it for her to keep forever and ever . . .
