I hope your weekend was a blast. My weekend included running and ice cream which in my opinion is the perfect equation for a good weekend.
Sundays are my rest days from exercise so we take it pretty easy over here.
Brooke got to watch some cartoons with my dad after church.
I went to Sundance ski resort to go walk around for a bit. When we got up there we saw that the ski lifts were open so we decided to go for a ride. Next time I want to bring my mountain bike to ride back down:)
Gold Brooks shoes and a view. I felt good about it.
The whole family came by a little bit later (even my brother and his family from out of town) for Father’s Day dinner. My dad requested taco/taco salads and fruit, he is a smart man.
Tortillas (the TortillaLand ones that you cook yourself), lettuce, Costco mango salsa, chicken (chicken, taco seasoning and water cooked in the crockpot for 8 hours on low), guac, avocado and cheese.
It will be a sad day for me and Brooke when watermelon season ends.
Brooke and her cousins ate outside.
And my dad got a really fun picture of me with my plate licked clean.
For dessert we had Costco berry pie and ice cream goodness.
To make—> mix one package of crushed up oreos with about 1/4 cup melted butter. Press onto the bottom of pan and let it freeze for 30 minutes. Top with melted hot fudge and freeze for 30 minutes. Layer on top of the fudge your favorite ice cream (we love the Tillamook mint chocolate chip ice cream) and then top that with whipped cream and a few more oreo crumbles. Freeze until you are ready to dig in.
The pan was gone in just a few minutes.
We then all sat around for a while on the couches and yep… I still haven’t put batteries in my clock.
