Picnic date night...with my kids!

So anyone who knows me (Jessica) in real life, knows that I love ice cream. A friend asked me a few months ago what food I would eat if I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, and it was a toss up between sushi and ice cream. With ice cream finally winning, because you can have so many different flavors and toppings I don't think I'd ever get tired of it!

So, when Breyers debuting their new gelato line, you know I was excited! I think actually I shrieked "Yes!!!" While jumping up and down like a kid. 

(Because I love ice cream, in case I hadn't already brought that up.)

So in order to make this extra super fun, I planned a picnic 'date night' with my kids, where we had a fancy gelato picnic in our backyard, complete with a ruffly pink picnic blanket and fancy pink drinks, at my daughter's insistence. Because fancy gelato sampling is the perfect inspiration for an impromptu family date night! And I thought it would also be a fun excuse to share some cute pictures of my kids with you all.

We tried all four flavors of gelato; vanilla caramel, raspberry cheesecake, tiramisu, and *drooling* triple chocolate. I know, I know. My job can be so hard sometimes!

The clear winner was the raspberry cheesecake, by a landslide. Possibly this was because it was also the "pinkest" flavor. And we all know that for some reason, pink things just taste better! Now, on to the cute pictures:

The Dude (my son Ender) was a big fan of the raspberry swirls. Oh and yes, he does have my eyes, lol.

 My girly girl had fun trying to eat without using her hands.

Our favorite part by far was the graham cracker crumbles over the top. Graham crackers + creamy 
cheesecake gelato + raspberry swirls = win. We ate them off the top first thing!

This ended up being a great excuse to have a fun event with my kids, and a good excuse to eat all the gelato we could cram into our tummies!

I thought this was a fun way to have a "date" with my kids on a hot summer evening. How would you all use Breyers Indulgences for a date night?
