Yummy ice cream, all homemade by friends and family. Cake batter, honey lavender, chocolate peanut butter, fresh mint chocolate chunk, and strawberry basil. WOW.

Mara made a quick, simple smash cake covered in white sprinkles. Apple cinnamon since Alder loves applesauce and cinnamon. Lots of smashing coming up.

Also of note, and a very good idea if you have homemade ice cream on hand: root beer floats!
