Summertime tradition

When we go swimming, we always come home for ice pops on the back porch. We do it so much that as we drive away from the pool now, Cali says, "Ice pops? Blue?" (Blue is usually her color of choice:) She knows what to expect now! And it also helps to make leaving the pool, not a big deal. They've got their treat to look forward to after all.

As you can see, they love them. Especially Miss Cali. Just look at that little scrunched-up face of sheer delight.

Only in the grand scheme of summer time can RED be considered a completely acceptable flavor.

We are popsicle fans ourselves here! And Sarah's color of choice is always blue too!
