MommyB Celebrates National Ice Cream Day with Friends & Blue Bunny {Giveaway -CLOSED}

July 14, 2012 16 Comments »

I love celebrating anything, whether it’s my younger sibling’s good grades, to Miss A being brave enough to dunk her head in the pool, the biggest or the smallest successes and accomplishments are what life is all about, so why not celebrate?!?! And while we’re at it, sometimes we’ll enjoy a birthday weekend filled with 3 days of fun or even party a little early, which is exactly what we did today.

Blue Bunny Pool Party

Little known fact: In 1984 Ronald Reagan declared July National Ice Cream MONTH, and this Sunday, July 15th, is National Ice Cream DAY. Big thanks to “The Gipper” for making my month a yummy one!

In honor of National Ice Cream Day, what better event to celebrate than at a fun-filled pool play date. We were a little worried that the dark clouds would hang out all day , but the sun came out and the temperature rose post-haste.

After a yummy lunch I broke out Blue Bunny’s adorable, Champ!® Mini Swirls Birthday Party Ice Cream Cones. Tah-Dah:

Immediately I felt like the Ice Cream man {without a truck of course}. All the kiddos {and most of the moms too} were running straight for me, as if something in their brains signaled when I pulled the first ice cream cone out of the box. Three words: Ice-Cream-Radar. Look at these ice-cream lovin’ kids:

Champs Mini Kids

Not only were these icy, sweet snacks perfect because we needed to cool off, but they are a GREAT size for little hands and mouths too. One mom said she didn’t feel so guilty eating one because of it’s size, although I must admit, today proved hard to stop at just one  Champ!®.

Blue Bunny’s Champ!® Ice Cream Cones come in different sizes and flavors, but we especially loved the Mini Swirls Birthday Party and Chocolate versions. They were such a creamy and a nice treat for our party. Want some of your own to celebrate National Ice Cream Month? I’m giving one lucky reader 5 Blue Bunny Bucks that will buy you 5 Blue Bunny Treats. You can buy lots of different Champ!® Ice Cream Cones, five boxes of The Original Bomb Pop®, or mix-and-match. The choice is yours.

    Birthday Cake is by far the most amazing I’d say.  Also love the duff carrot cake, red velvet cake, and wedding cake.
