Don't Let Summer Go.... #IceCreamRun

This post was sponsored by Global Influence.

We live in a very rural area, less than 2,000 people live in our little town, but in summer our town comes to life. I love seeing the tourists, and all of the fun events! Starting a couple years ago, we even had an ice cream truck come around a couple times a month and seeing my children get to experience that was great! 

The first time, we heard the music for a while then we realized it was coming down the street! It was about 8pm, and we were in our PJ's getting ready for bed, but we ran outside and we all had some ice cream! 

I love memories like that, and I love summer, and I'm not ready to let it go just yet! There are still a few warm summer days left although school is calling, and I will be headed to Walgreens to get some great ice
cream treats- and I don't even have to wait for that little ice cream truck to come around.

This weekend has been full of great times with my family, and I really hope that I can help those great times linger on throughout early fall. 

What have your favorite memories of this summer been? Do you have a favorite ice cream memory?

Just Pretend Kids! #Giveaway

We received the tutu and wings below to facilitate the review.

We were pretty excited when we got a fun package in the mail a few weeks ago! The kids always love packages, and Annabelle was absolutely thrilled with this one!

I had picked out the Pansy Tutu and Wings from the Flower Collection for Annabelle, and she loved it.

The set is adorable, and she really has enjoyed it. I do think the colors are much bolder on my computer screen. The yellow was much more muted, as was the dark purple, when actually in our hands. Unfortunately, the wings didn't last long with the boys around, either. They are wire with panty-hose-like fabric stretched across to make the wings. 

The tutu has held up well to lots of use.... LOTS of twirling! 

There are a lot of other girly dress up tutus and outfits, as well as some great costumes from Just Pretend Kids, so be sure to check them out if you are looking for costumes or fun dress up clothes for your kids! Just Pretend Kids also has boxed party kits with a special gift for the guest of honor!
