As we all know, it’s the summertime. From boating to going to the beach, from hosting barbeque parties to roasting marshmallows on the bonfire, from relaxing on a hammock to playing sports with family and friends … there’s nothing quite like the sunny, warm days of summer.
Every day, I see kids playing on the sidewalks, riding bikes, and enjoying their time off from school. I can’t help but think how my son will keep busy during the dog days of summer when he gets older. Will he enjoy playing catch, shooting hoops, kicking a ball, swimming? Do you notice what all of these have in common. They are all sports.
I grew up in a family that was into sports. From watching to playing, we did (and still do) just about everything. Baseball, softball, golf, hockey, figure skating, horseback riding, track, dance, basketball … I felt like my second home (and sometimes even my first home) was at a sports arena/field.
My husband was (and still is) completely into sports as well. I swear, he’s like a walking sports almanac. Ask him any question about a game and he’s bound to know every stat associated with the game. I always tell him that he should be a sports announcer because he’s so full of knowledge and information.
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1 package (9 ounces) chocolate wafers
- 1/2 cup blueberries, washed and dried
- Whip together the whipping cream and sugar until stiff peaks form.
- Top five chocolate wafer cookies with homemade whipped cream. Stack the cookies on top of each other to form a stack/mini cake.
- Top the top portion of the frosting with a few blueberries.
- Refrigerate for at least four hours to make sure that the stacks turn into mini icebox cakes.
