Most Americans today are familiar with extended families. In fact, the modern family typically includes parents who are remarried, children that are adopted, and many other variations. It’s become much more the norm. To honor stepfamilies, a day of acknowledgment is held every year on September 16th.

National Stepfamily Day highlights the importance of the bonds and relationships these families share. While there are sometimes hurdles faced by families where divorce and new sibling assimilation must occur, there are also great bonds and victories to be celebrated—and that is what this day recognizes.

What better way to celebrate such an important family day than going out for ice cream?


A lot of family bonding, regardless of how it is formed, happens around the dinner table.  Figuratively speaking, breaking bread with your family offers a great time to catch up on each other’s lives, talk about serious topics, and just spend quality time together. Some families even make it a habit to visit restaurants or stop for a special dessert after a game. For some, this tradition is carried on for many years.

What better way to start or continue this tradition than with good, old ice cream?  Pralines offers many different types and flavors created with the highest quality ingredients.  There is something sure to please everyone’s taste buds.
