Another wonderful editorial photo shoot for Cincinnati Parent Magazine! This time it’s all about summer sweets, thanks to the kind folks at Graeters… Little Avery chose strawberry but I personally have a weakness for some black raspberry chip! Cincinnati folks, do you have a favorite flavor? Some seriously good stuff there. πŸ™‚

To celebrate this month’s cover shoot, I am giving away a free $10 gift certificate to any Cincinnati Graeters store, just leave a comment at the bottom of this post to enter! Don’t forget to leave your email address, or I won’t be able to contact you when you win.

(This giveaway is in no way sponsored by Graeters or Cincinnati Parent magazine – the giveaway is totally from me because I’m excited about summer and I love to share ice cream. This giveaway will end Sunday April 6th at 11:00 pm, and winner will be announced on the following Monday morning. Winner will be chosen at random. If you happen to win, but you do not live in the Cincinnati area and or do not otherwise have access to a Graeters store, I will happily eat your ice cream for you. πŸ˜‰ Or maybe I’ll be nice and pick someone else.)

You are welcome to leave me some kind words, but I’ve already picked the winner.

While you are scrolling down to the comment box, check out this adorable little 5 year old with the best dimples on the planet… Avery was the perfect model and although the morning we shot was 40 degrees and I made him dress in shorts and sandals and eat ice cream, he rocked it and never whimpered once about the cool weather! I think he was just happy to be eating the ice cream… it makes everything better you know. πŸ™‚
