"Beat the Heat" Ice Cream Sandwiches on Butter Wafer Cookies

Oh My G!!!
It has been sooooooo Hot in the Midwest.
Not only hot but Humid as well.
So humid, 
my ice cream are quickly melting while I am taking shots of it,
I am wiping the lenses of my camera every 5 seconds
because it keeps fogging up.
This is the hardest photo shoot I have done.
Trying to get a good shot
before I lose the light from Mr. Sun again.
I tried shooting photos indoors but I am just not getting the light I need.
My kids love to play outdoors.
And with this heat I need to be creative with their snacks
after an afternoon play out in the sun.
Seems like my house is the pit stop for everything at summertime.
We are a Tire Shop,
First Aid, Snack Booth,
and Ice Cream Parlor for our neighborhood kids.
"Mr. Greg can you please put air on my bike."
"My Floating Ring does not have air, Mr. Greg, can you put air in it please."
"Something broke off my scooter do you think you can fix it?"
"Waaaaaaahhhhh, I just fell off my bike, I cut myself, do you have a Band-Aid?"
"Do you have bug spray?"
"Mom we're thirsty and huuunnngggrrry!"
Sometimes my husband and I wonder where their parents are,
and if they just tell their kids,
"Go to Aiden's house and ask them if they can help you with what ever you need."
We love our neighbors
and I think we know why they love us too! ;)
Here's a quick and easy ice cream snack
I make the kids help me make when they all raid my kitchen.
Perfect for any hot summer day.

Chocolate or Vanilla Pizzelle

  1. Hot and humid is the horrible combination. I can't stand it....
    These ice cream sandwiches are a real breeze!
    Stay cool and eat more ice cream!

  2. Love the look of your cheerful-looking colourful ice cream sandwiches. They do look very contrasting from our sad grey-looking winter views from my window.
