Oh summer, you were so good to us. We spent our mornings sleeping in, our afternoons swimming at the community pool and our evenings jumping on the trampoline or taking family bike rides. While every day was not butterflies and roses, the laughter and good times that filled our hearts outweighed the siblings fights. I'm not sure I could pick out my favorite thing from this summer because there were so many great memories. But with that being said, I knew I couldn't let it end without a special treat - especially since our last day of summer vacation ends on National Root Beer Float Day! (August 6th)

Vanilla ice cream is always a freezer staple in our household. Cohen recently discovered A&W root beer during a family dinner after a baseball game. So now both ice cream AND A&W root beer are weekly items that are added to the grocery list. After our last summer dinner, I decided it was time to cheers to one of the best summers ever because A&W Root Beer helps create the perfect timeless family night treat: an A&W Root Beer Float!

A&W Root Beer Float

--Vanilla Ice Cream
--A&W Root Beer

1. Scoop 2-3 scoops of vanilla ice cream into a mug or cup. I usually make sure the ice cream reaches the stop of the cup. :)

2. Slowly pour the A&W Root Beer over the ice cream until it starts to fizz and foam to the very top of the cup.

3. Top with a little bit more root beer as needed, throw in a straw and sip away!
