Got Kids?

Yesterday marked the first day of Summer.  What is a better way to celebrate than getting some Vanilla Ice Cream and Root Beer and making a yummy frosty treat for the family?  Ummm....I can't think of one.  LOL.

Well the family enjoyed and did so rather quickly, but little Haylee didn't get a float for herself.  I sat by her and fed her small spoonfuls of ice cream and let her slurp the root beer from my spoon.  She was in awe.  SHE LOVED IT.  She was giggling and leaning towards me as if she was saying, "gimme more, gimme more".  Kenzie grabbed the camera and snapped some adorable pics.  I just knew that these would be the pictures I would use to complete the LO/sketch challenge for this weeks' Scrap Your A** Off challenge.  I also knew I wanted to make it a summery layout so I looked to a few other ongoing challenges to get more inspiration.
