Caleb and Nana's Adventures....National Ice Cream Day At "Fresh Local Ice Cream"

Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month?  In 1984 President Ronald Reagan decided that July would 
be National Ice Cream Month and the 3rd Sunday in July would be National Ice Cream Day.  As luck would have it 
Caleb and I were both free, as were his Mom and Dad, on the 3rd Sunday in July and so decided to indulge.
Now where should we go to enjoy some ice cream?  I went to my favorite source, Google, and did a bit of research.
 I decided on Fresh Local Ice Cream in Raleigh.
We drove up to a cute little stand alone ice-cream shop.  You order at the window and then take a seat at
 one of their outdoor tables.
































So many tempting flavors.  It was hard to choose.  I finally decided on the Coconut Almond Crunch.
It was delicious!!  The girl at the window was friendly and answered all of our questions with a smile.

My Coconut Almond Crunch and Caleb's Chocolate with sprinkles.  Good choice Caleb:-)


























A few ice cream facts from the Farmers Almanac..."The History of Ice Cream"
A.D 54–68: For centuries, iced desserts were a luxury.
A.D. 618–907: The origins of ice cream date back to China's T'ang period, probably as a dish for the 
country's rulers.
1744: American colonists brought along recipes from Europe.
1851: Baltimore dairyman Jacob Fussell opened the first commercial ice cream factory. 
1939: Grocery stores didn't start selling ice cream until the 1930's, and by WWII, 
ice cream had become so popular that it turned into somewhat of an American symbol 

If you are in the mood for ice cream and you are in North Raleigh I suggest you try Fresh Local Ice Cream. 
I think you will love it.  I did.
Get out and try a new restaurant or go on an adventure.
