HERSHEY’S CAMP BONDFIRE – Fun with Friends

Bo

Wow, only 10 days before Miss A starts her official first day of Kindergarten {not including orientation}. I cannot believe it. Although I bought school supplies weeks ago, have all of her uniform tops hung in her closet, and have started putting her to bed at an earlier time, I still just don’t feel like the summer is over.

In an effort to say, “goodbye” to Summer and, “hello” to school in a fun way, we decided to get a bunch of our friends together and have our very own Back-to-School party with a HERSHEY’S CAMP BONDFIRE twist. It’s been hot, hot, hot out lately, and because there were a few little ones running around we figured to keep our s’mores cold. We used our s’mores for ice cream toppings and created our own fake bonfire, that wouldn’t burn little hands. It was a total success!!

Here are some pictures from our Ice Cream Social:

Everyone had a blast and the s’mores toppings were a hit! The kids especially loved the bite-size pieces of Hershey’s chocolate bars in their ice cream and us moms snagged some too!

No matter if you’re roasting s’mores the traditional way, or making it fit your family celebrations HERSHEY’S CAMP BONDFIRE is about being around people you love and making great memories.

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

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.

Red, White, and YUMMY! – A Patriotic Summer Treat Giveaway {CLOSED}

It seems like the past few weeks have been filled with red, white, and blue for my family. First we had Miss A’s Cat in the Hat birthday party with red and white from Cat’s hat and blue from Thing 1 and Thing 2’s hair. When we went shopping for decorations the party store had a couple of aisles solely dedicated to the three patriotic colors, it was pretty cool.

A couple of weeks ago we were invited to a Memorial Day gathering with some great friends. As usual we try to bring something to parties with us and this time we figured that Blue Bunny’s Bomb Pop® {The Original} would be fitting since they are red, white, and blue. Not only were they a hit among kiddos and adults, but they were refreshing after a yummy meal. {DaddyB even had one on the drive home!!}

Here are a few pictures from our Memorial Day fun:

Blue Bunny Bomb Pop

I know with 4th of July coming up people are going to be putting hints of red, white, and blue everywhere including the menu. If you want to find something festive, easy, and that everyone will love {even the kiddos with peanut allergies!!} I recommend Blue Bunny’s Bomb Pop® {The Original} or for summer parties in general Blue Bunny has a few different flavored Bomb Pop®s pretty cool!!

Don’t you want some for your Fourth of July celebrations {or to keep in your fridge for an everyday snack}? I am giving one lucky winner Bunny Bucks for 4 of your favorite Blue Bunny Ice Cream products!!
