You guys! The sun is shining and the kids want to do EVERYTHING outside. Must mean it is summertime! That also means it is time for Fun, Sun and summertime food! #SummerGoodies for everyone.
This weekend Colorado decided to show her true colors and we had a Saturday of almost 80 degrees, it was perfect summer weather - I won't tell ya how Sunday was. Like I said, Colorado weather...
My children are certainly all American kiddos. The instant it is warm out they want to be outside in the backyard running like crazy and when it is time to refuel they want summertime food. Not to mention some great traditional treats like ice cream! Yum!!
Jude and Teagan soaking up the warm Colorado sun while playing in the backyard. I love that Teagan is at the age now that she enjoys the simple pleasures that can be found in the backyard! Great sibling play time and the naps after this fun make mom happy! ;) There is something about summer that makes me happier and more relaxed. Maybe it is all the energy we get to burn while outside? Maybe it is the great summer traditions we have started building as a family? Maybe it is the yummy summertime food that we all enjoy and wait for every year? Who knows but I LOVE it! Bring on the sun, fun and food!
Now when I think about summertime food I think of ice cream and the grill. Those two things do not go together but did you know that pizza and the grill can go together? Yeah, Jude was confused too. Thanks to Jack's Pizza we found another summertime favorite.
Jack's Pizza even has an easy tutorial to walk you through this Pizza Grilling experience. The best part about this idea...EASY! We were able to play and enjoy the weather while our dinner cooked right next to us. No worries about running inside to make sure the pizza was cooking properly.
This was no ordinary baked pizza. The crust was grilled to perfection in just 16 minutes! The crispy crust made the dish! Yummy!! Jack's pizza is made with 100% Real Wisconsin Cheese and has a Preservative-Free Crust. Happy things to see for this mom! I am so glad we tried this new Grilling idea. Pizza is probably Jude and Teagan's favorite thing to eat for lunch or dinner so I know we will be trying Jack's Pizza grilling again! Toddler Approved!!
"You cannot buy happiness but you can buy ice cream. And that's kind of the same thing."
Do you agree? Ice Cream of any kind brings a smile to people's faces and lets be real it tastes amazing! We ended our family fun in the sun dinner with NESTLÉ® DRUMSTICK® CRUNCH® Dipped Cones. I have these stocked in our freezer for summer. It really is the perfect summertime treat or dessert.
I think Jude's picture speaks for itself. Jude approved Ice Cream cone. Drumstick ice cream cones bring back memories for me. My grandma always had these in her freezer and once summer showed her face we were able to grab those yummy NESTLÉ® DRUMSTICK® treats and cool off!
Ice Cream Drumsticks and Jack's GRILLED Pizza make for the perfect summertime fun! I look forward to many more afternoons like this in our backyard this summer. Make sure you head to Walmart to pick up these great #SummerGoodies - it is the place that has everything to make your family fun in the sun memorable.
Do you have any Summertime traditions or summertime food you look forward too?
