Recipe Friday: Birthday Cake Milkshakes

June 19, 2015

What a week!  M and C had camp, which meant V and I got to hang out for some one on one time.  We did the Children’s Museum — twice –, grocery shopping, a lazy day at home and of course, a trip to Target.

Today, as the camp for M and C came to an end, both of them had a little program in one of their classes.  Camp started at 9am.  C’s program was at 11:30am, M’s at 3:30pm.  Pick up was at 4pm.  You can imagine what kind of yo-yo action was going on today as I did my best to get to everyone’s activity with a cranky-free V in tow.

And did I mention that C leaves for a week at sleep away camp on Sunday and M leaves for Camp Grandma on Monday? There’s been a bit of running around going on to get everyone squared away.  Tempting as it was to just flop down on the couch and let the girls do what they would, I decided I had enough juice left to whip up a fun summer treat.

Ice cream, frosting, sprinkles in a frosty glass? Who doesn’t love that?
