Oh, ice cream! There isn’t much that tastes better on a hot summer day. So to celebrate National Ice Cream Day, we invited FRESH Cary to bring their truck to the pool! National Ice Cream Day is celebrated each year on the 3rd Sunday in July, so this year it was July 16th.

FRESH prides itself on getting its’ ingredients fresh each week from local dairy farms. Since they only opened in Cary in the spring of 2017, I had not yet tried their ice cream. I was very excited about the opportunity!

The weather did not want to cooperate and there was a threat of rain and storms most of the day. That certainly didn’t stop our members from showing up to get some ice cream! After FRESH had been serving for about 30 minutes, everyone had to get out of the pool because of thunder. That may have kept everyone out of the pool, but it certainly didn’t keep them from hanging out, having fun and eating ice cream! Members kept showing up and some even brought their dogs (FRESH advertises that they have special dog ice cream)!

The ice cream was definitely as fresh and delicious as promised! Can’t wait for National Ice Cream Day 2018 to hopefully do it again!
