Together with my sister and her kids, we hand-cranked a batch of vanilla ice cream with our grandma/great-grandma on the cement outside of her front yard.  We were celebrating her 85th birthday… the same way we did when my sister and I were kids.

  1. Ice cream the traditional way..!!I did it only once with my mom,when I was 9. You brought me back such good memories!!!happy birthday to your great-grandma!!

  2. I’m trying to hold back tears as I look at these photos. It reminds me of my great-grandmother who made us homemade ice cream on the screened porch every summer and occasionally in the winter if we were good. Cherish those moments. I love it.
