Ryan, my sister and I started our day with an easy and delicious breakfast by Van’s.
The Van’s cinnamon French toast sticks were a hit all around. All three of us enjoyed the crispy sticks topped with syrup.
Since we wanted to take Sadie hiking before the real heat of the day set in, we changed into our hiking clothes and hopped in the car.
While on our way to Weikwa Springs State Park, I drank a strawberry smoothie made with ice cubes, frozen strawberries, strawberry protein powder and ice cold water. I wanted a little protein in my belly to keep me full on our hike.
When we arrived, we decided to do a large loop, which we figured would take us around two hours to hike.
Not even a half of a mile into our hike, we came across a deer!
Though he ran before I got a chance to snap his picture, I did manage to capture a little of his hiney!
We also stumbled upon a small tortoise, which Sadie wanted to make her new best friend.
I wore my Garmin on our hike to see exactly how many miles we covered.
We ended up hiking just shy of six miles in a little less than two hours.
After a morning full of activity, we were ready for a filling lunch.
To me, Memorial Day = BBQ time!
Ryan threw some hot dogs on the grill which we enjoyed with cucumber and sliced green and red pepper.
After lunch, we headed out back to soak up some sun and read our books. We didn’t last long though because it is H-O-T!
Now it’s time to run some much-needed errands, including a trip to the grocery store.
Question of the Afternoon
What’s your favorite food that’s traditionally served at a BBQ?
I love corn on the cob and watermelon. Yum!
