When you have weather like this:
Hikes are mandatory.
In preperation for fun times outdoors with Maggie, I threw together a quick cold breakfast. Tried out a new cereal plus a classic:
Does anyone else mix their cereal?!?! I can’t remember the last time I had an entire bowl of one brand/kind. Sliced a nana, and poured the Almond Milk…good times.
Two thumbs up, all around!
As I was leaving this morning I had to deal with this. I SWEAR this photo was completely un-touched by me, as in…she did this to herself.
She was looking at me like:
A) Yes, I am a dog in a blanket and propped up with a pillow.
B) Why do you care.
C) Go away now…….eye closing time needs to continue.
Tough life, eh?
With a snoozing boxer at home (and a snoozing pomeranian elsewhere in the house) it was time to meet Magz for a hiking adventure!
We were ready for action.
We were promised animals such as these:
There must be a steadily growing trend of Turtle Takers in my neck of the woods. Sadly…the only “animals” we saw were stuffed and/or plastic.
(is anyone else humming the Jurassic Park Opening Theme….admit it…….you are.)
Regardless, the hike was yahhhhh-mazing. It is a 6 mile trail….3 up, and 3 down. The first 2.3 miles are easy breezy with a few rolling hills, and the last .7 is pure hill out-of-breath craziness. Love! Check out the scenery!
LIZARD! Ok, I guess we did see animals. I love how it is still keeping with the Jurassic Park theme which I know you are STILL humming.
We were stylin’ and profilin’, YO!
Before we knew it, we had reached the top! There is a massive (and ancient) Fire Tower at the top of this hike that scares the ever-living-poo out of me. Maggie thought she could get me up it, but alas…the Blogger Boy only made it to the second level before I tucked my tail, and reversed back to solid ground.
Maggie, however, was a total trooper…and took my camera ALL the way to the top!
I took her word for the view, as I watched from below. 😉
The pics turned out amazing, though! So beautiful!
By this time, my hunger was ready for the picnic I had packed, so it was so long…Tower O’ Fire (and doom, in my case)
We headed back down the trail, and then it was lunch time!
Almond Butter and Jam sammies….Veggies (Orange Pepper, Asparagus, Broccoli) and Pine Nut Hummus….and BOOTY! This time I decided to give the Veggie a break for a hot second, and went with New York Pizza! Loveeeee.
Also sliced up a nice Starfruit for dessert! Love these little guys.
On that note….it is time for a MUCH needed shower, and get ready for work tonight!
Have a great day bloggies, get out and enjoy that sunshine as much as you can!!!
