National Ice Cream Day

2007.07.15
pixel
This counts as milk, right?
pixel
My nieces, Morgan and Maddie, savoring an ice cream on the front step at my moms. Not a bad way to spend an evening :) A bold blogger reminded me that July is National Ice Cream Month and July 15th is National Ice Cream Day. I will be celebrating it with Ben & Jerry's Cookie Dough Ice Cream!

"In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day. He recognized ice cream as a fun and nutritious food that is enjoyed by a full 90% of the nation's population. In the proclamation, President Reagan called for all people of the United States to observe these events with "appropriate ceremonies and activities."

Stats - D200 w/ my 28-105 lens, ISO 100, 28mm, 1/40s @ F3.5

P.S. Am I overdoing the selective coloring?
