Finer Things Friday: Summer Bliss

It was so perfect I forgot to take photos.

Homemade Butterfinger ice cream, straight out of our White Mountain Freezer.

Family gathered with a neighbor friend on our freshly painted (yesterday) picnic table.

Not too sweltering, only-a-little-windy Kansas evening.

Three-year-old birthday girl smiling with a sweet, milky, drippy grin.

Summer bliss.
