Summertime Memories {Recipe: Old Fashioned Chocolate Egg Cream Float}

Summertime as a little kid was the best. My mom had an in-home daycare, so every day I had friends my age to play with. There were no video games, only 3 channels on TV – none which were interesting to a kid my age, huge shade trees in our backyard and lots of fun! […]
