And that’s exactly how we started our Sunday! We woke up a little before 8 a.m. and by 8:30 a.m., we were bundled up and hiking along the orange blaze trail at Weikwa Springs state park. When I say we were bundled up, I mean it. Ryan and I wore several layers to the trails today and Sadie debuted her bright pink bomber jacket that I bought for her.Gotta take our typical hiking family photo!

Once we started hiking, the chill started to hit us. When Ryan turned around to look at me he started laughing at my cocoon-like appearance.Fortunately the chill gradually dissipated as we continued walking and our hoods were not necessary about two miles into the hike.
Still, Sadie kept her pink jacket on because she’s skin ‘n’ bones and likes to look fashionable while she hunts squirrels. Our hike this morning was quite eventful! We saw a herd of about 15 white-tailed deer, which Sadie alerted us to when she took off running after them.
Our hike continued until we completed just shy of six miles in slightly less than two hours.On our way home, we kept with our hiking tradition and hit up Starbucks for his and hers Frappuccinos.
When we arrived back home, we wanted a hot breakfast! The breakfast tortilla I had before the hike didn’t keep me as full as I anticipated and I was ready for a more substantial meal.
When Ryan suggested pancakes, I was more than game! I made a batch of fluffy pancakes for us by following the instructions on the back of the Bisquick Heart Smart mix. Breakfast was scarfed down because we had to do a quick-change to make it to church on time.
Now we’re back at home and have lunch on the brain. After lunch, I will be experimenting in the kitchen while doing some laundry. Gotta check some things off the to-do list.
Hope you’re enjoying the weekend!
