Life has been CRAZY busy….. With baseball games and getting ready for extended school year (more to come on this topic), we have been running here and running there….I say that with such love because I wouldn’t have it any other way…..but sometimes the craziness can get in the way of things we wanted to do.....So to help with this, we do a Summer Checklist… much like my Harvest Checklist…. It gives us a list to help accomplish things we have been talking about doing and enjoying……
Here is our list:
-Pool, Pool, Pool
-Tim Horton Coffee
-Peaches, Strawberries, Blackberries- Picking Fresh Fruit
-Plant Garden at Home
-New Day Gluten Free Cafe
There is no specific order….. We just pick one and go…… So far we can check off two places from our list….. Tim Horton and the Zoo!!!!!
Let’s start with the COFFEE shop!!! Tim Horton’s is known for their donuts and coffee…. Anyone else feel as if Donuts are the comeback dessert/breakfast food…. Donuts are all over the place this season: on shirts, towels, phone cases…..hitting the social media posts and dessert bars….Im loving this trend because I love donuts…. I haven't actually had one since we went gluten free, but it was so fun letting Carter pick what he wanted…. Colby went with a ice cold milk and veggie straws, and I went with an Iced Coffee……
Carter loved his Donut, and we loved the experience…. Definitely worth a trip!!! I'm on the hunt for a gluten free Donut!!!! More to come......
The Zoo is probably our favorite and most visited place in STL. Taking the suggestion of my BFF’s we always go from 8-11am. This not only helps with the Midwest Summer Heat but also with the crowds…. I always ask what animals each kiddo wants to see and then we start there…. Such fun!!!!
Sweet Colby was very very excited to be outside and see all the animals…. It's intimidating at times because he is a little peanut but seeing Carter’s actions allows Colby to mimic his behavior….this is exactly what I’ve dreamed about…… Such love!!!!
Is there any place you think we should add???? Comment below!!!! Off to another place on our List!!!! Much Love!!!!
