Chocolate Popsicles

Kids are so carefree & full of life.  Mine are bigger now & though they enjoy a good Chocolate Popsicle as much as the little ones, something about seeing kids enjoy a cold popsicle on a hot afternoon brings a renewed sense of the wonder & pleasure of life.  I got to spend a little bit of an afternoon with 2 sweet little boys enjoying popsicles.

They licked as fast as they could to catch every melting drop while we talked about dinosaurs, puppies & their baby sister.  They also refused to share with their mom - ha!  

When they finished their Chocolate Popsicles, their mom said they could have a Berry Vanilla one & they devoured those too :)

When they were done they washed their chocolate covered little faces & hands in my pool.  The innocence of these sweet boys had no idea they weren't getting just as clean as they would with soap.  It was fun & that's all that mattered.
