Simply Extraordinary // Activity Idea for You and Your Family

I recently got back from a trip to Virginia where I was staying with my sister and her family. These guys are my favorite and I love every chance I get to spend time with them. While most days are spent following them around as they go about their daily lives, I love and admire the effort they put into quality family time - and not just because I'm visiting! But on my last day, which was a stressful day for their whole family due to busy schedules and tired kids, I decided to whip up a little break-time for us all.

I first ran to grab some Häagen-Dazs® Ice Cream at Giant-Landover, their local grocery store. Then, I grabbed a blanket, some bowls and spoons, and set up an outdoor picnic for the whole family to enjoy. This was such a great moment for us all to stop, slow down, and enjoy the simple things. None of us even got "photo ready" because it wasn't about that. I loved seeing them all come together over some indulgent Häagen-Dazs ice cream while we all laughed and just allowed ourselves to be fully present in this simple moment.

The best part about Häagen-Dazs® Ice Cream is that it has no artificial flavors or colors, is made with Kosher-dairy, and many of their flavors only contain five ingredients! Their ice cream has a real quality that you can taste. I bought the Häagen-Dazs Trio Triple Chocolate, Häagen-Dazs Caramel Cone, and Häagen-Dazs Strawberry flavors and my family had a hard time deciding which one was the favorite. They were all so good!

If you're looking for a quick way to bring your family together, be sure to try this Häagen-Dazs ice cream picnic idea! It was so fun, took only a few minutes to setup, and allowed us all to fully enjoy a simple moment with simple ingredients.
