Homemade Ice Cream

After looking at some old pictures of my kids making ice cream, I decided we needed to make ice cream again. The last time I remember making it was when Andrew was about 3 years old -- he looks so cute on our front porch watching the process. Anyway, I ordered an ice cream maker since our old one seemed to be missing, and last Sunday we made our first batch. It turned out great. The kids really enjoyed the entire process -- from hunting down a recipe to mixing and the watching and waiting for the ice cream to thicken. We just made vanilla to start with, but I think we will try a few different flavors as the summer continues. 

Claire was so excited that she didn't want to leave the mixture for even a minute. She sat and watched and watched until it was ready. 

Finally done. We realized we could have more than doubled the recipe, as we had lots of extra room in the freezer.
