We’ve been doing a pretty good job at knocking out things from our Summer Bucket List on a regular basis. It’s actually working pretty effectively because several of these projects/outings were not things I would have done in that moment had it not been for our list. Maybe I was tired or just didn’t feel like leaving the house. But I have this list in the back of my mind at all times so if there’s a moment/opportunity where something on the list is possible, I tend to take advantage of it. We’ll be able to do even more once softball season is over (we’re in All-Stars right now) and we’ll have more of our weeknights free. But so far – here’s some of the things we’ve done from the list:
We actually did two at once on Saturday. That greenway up there is at the Hayes Nature Preserve which has been doing some rennovations since 2 years ago when we used to go there a lot to pick up Donnie from kayaking outings. They have this new “natural” playground I’ve been dying to visit so, after we rode our bikes (and by “we” I mean “the kids” because I don’t do bikes) we hit the playground. It was really fun, and a nice change from the brightly colored plastic playgrounds we normally visit.
We actually did the outdoor concert, greenway, and playground all this weekend. All of that on top of a building rappel, a 16-mile long run, and some Father’s Day festivities is why I rewarded myself with this last night:
The recipe is here. I added the raspberries on top because they were on sale and looked good this weekend, and I added bigger pieces of oreo along the sides of mine because you couldn’t really see them in the filling like you could in the recipe. Everyone declared the dessert a BIG WHOPPING SUCCESS last night at Father’s Day dinner. So, all in all? A highly productive weekend!
How was yours? Did you eat any desserts that should be declared illegal?
