Eat Ice Cream For Breakfast!

Yeah, you heard me! This Saturday I'm asking everyone to eat ice cream for breakfast. After years of multiple hospital stays, the death of a sister, and finally a life saving bone marrow transplant, Aren was able to have a wish granted by Make-A-Wish. His wish was to go to Disney World and we stayed at an amazing place called Give Kids the World which was an all inclusive "resort" specifically for families from wish granting organizations. March 7th is founders day and four years ago they started a tradition where all children were encouraged to eat ice cream for breakfast...hence the ice cream parlor is open from 7:30 a.m. until 9:30 p.m. every day. I am proud to say that Rick, Aren, and I did our part to live the dream and we ate an ice cream sundae every morning for a week.

So, come on people! Join me this Saturday morning and have some ice cream for breakfast. Remember the children who have been recipients of the amazing service of organizations like Make-A-Wish and GKTW. Come on...it's for the children.!

When we first moved here I saw a report on this place. They are awesome and I will do my best to have Ice cream on Saturday (if all sickness is gone)

Well, I can't eat ice cream but I'll do my best to see that my kids get some. I know they will be disappointed :0)

Don't have to ask me twice. We're going grocery shopping tonight and planning on buying the works!

Higleys said...

I had Matt buy me some sugar-free ice cream stuff. It's not that good, but I will eat it for breakfast. :)
After this kid is out, and I no longer have GD, I'm gonna have a big ol' banana split...and french fries...and juice, I really miss juice.

Oh my goodness! Looks like I'd better go shopping!

Can I have sherbet instead? Because I'll totally have ice cream for brekkie if so! Emergency Fair at the Church tomorrow, please stop by and save my soul from the tediousness of our 72 hour kit.

Okay...this sugar free stuff is kinda growing on me. I did have to have some extra protien besides just the ice-cream. So, I had left-over meatloaf, and ice cream for breakfast.

Thanks for helping the children...and ew...meatloaf?

Hanging head in shame. I chose to do the Wii Fit instead of going to the store to get ice cream yesterday. and then I was to tired to get out of bed this morning to go buy sundae's at Sonic before the kids woke up. so how about we eat Ice cream for Lunch today?
