While we were in Paris my brother- & sister-in-law brought us to a wonderful ice cream parlour that had the kids, especially my Maggie, grinning from ear to ear. The place is called Amorino, and they have a huge selection of delicious gelato. Ice cream scooped in the shape of a rose? Priceless! And the look on the kids’ faces when they discovered another branch in Grandma’s hometown of St Malo? Pure delight!

I paid extra close attention as they prepared ours, and am planning to surprise the kids with our own ice cream flowers at home … Best part will be the practice — Yum!
