Ice Cream Pie

With my brother's families around for the Memorial Day Weekend, I knew exactly what I'd made for dessert one night.  I used to make this all the time when we all lived at home together- my brothers would ask "Can you please make an ice cream pie?".

I needed to make two pies for the number of servings (10 adults and 7 kids), so I grabbed goodies to make a grown up ice cream pie and a kid ice cream pie.
Start with a graham cracker (or Oreo cookie) crust.  The grown up pie had a layer of English Toffee Caramel ice cream.  The kids' had a layer of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, of course.
 Next came a layer of hot fudge between the layers of ice cream:
 Both pies were topped with a layer of Crushed Vanilla Bean ice cream:
 The kids' pie had gummy bears, mini marshmallows, M&Ms and drizzled Hershey's Chocolate Sauce:
The grown up pie was drizzled with Hershey's Chocolate Sauce and sprinkled with chopped up Skor candy bars:
As you can imagine, the kids went crazy for the ice cream pie...including the big kids- my brothers hadn't had an ice cream pie in many years!
I started the weekend Friday afternoon doing SUP Yoga on the Colorado River.  Saturday morning we hiked.  I went for a trail run while everyone else had a picnic.  Then a water gun fight broke out and we rode over to the bmx track to ride the bumps, played tennis, buzzed my son's head, took a nap, had dinner and roasted marshmallows.  Sunday was more playing outside and more nap time.  Monday was yoga, swimming, bmx track and back home for more nap.  What a fun time!  I think we earned those calories.  How did you spend the long weekend?
