If you haven't had this protein-rich ice cream from @halotopcreamery you're missing out! This stuff is so so good and only 250-350 calories per pint. .
Currently loving their salted caramel, black cherry, oatmeal cookie, cookies n cream and chocolate mocha chip. Oh and s'mores...ok, seriously though, way too many to pick just one. 😋What's your fav???

  • As a kid growing up in Southern CA, I vividly remember all our yearly summer trips to Disneyland. But one memory that really stands out from the rest was watching the Electrical Parade on Main Street. And now that @disneyland brought it back, it's been unreal watching it with my two littles. I can't even tell you how magical🌈 but I can show ya. Check out our stories. 🤗 We keep replaying it over here. 🤣
