REFRESH YOUR SUMMER WITH GOT MILK?
 
I had the opportunity to go with my kids to the Got Milk event and taste some of Heather Perry’s recipes.  They had a really fun event set up with food, drinks and art  projects for the kids.  My kids had so much fun making frames and painting cows!  Here are some summer drink recipes for you!  I have included recipes for the kid friendly drinks, too!
