Summer Weekend #8

Consider me the world's worst documenter, though I have 9 years of blogging to show for it, because I hardly took any pictures this weekend. It was hot (though not really, I'm just ready for fall), we were outside, and I was in a mood. I can't even describe it, really.

But anyway, Saturday we went for a walk with the dogs and then to the zoo.

I accidentally dressed him in all Denver Broncos' colors. In Colorado, I'd have been horrified. Here, I realize it doesn't matter.

Against my better judgment, I ended up at Walmart because the list of things we needed on Sunday morning could only mean a trip to Walmart. I'll go somewhere else to grab some produce this week. All of their salads were going bad. 
Also, I got there at 9am and it was nice and quiet. By 9:30, the general population had made their way into the store. 
Next time, I'll go at 8:00. 

Since the weather was low 80s with no humidity, we went for a hike-ish kind of walk along some trail that's 70 miles long, but we only did a few miles. 

Honestly, this is the Pennsylvania I remember. It can be really beautiful as soon as you get away from the gobs of people in the cities. 

We stopped for ice cream because apparently this place is just "the best", but I wasn't overly impressed. Not much will replace Culver's Mint Oreo Concrete for me. 

He was verrrrrry upset when I stopped feeding him and we got in the car to go home. 

Oh, now I remember Friday night: we tried to grill pizza on the new grill and it didn't work and then we tried to grill naan and it caught on fire. 
We're trying steaks tonight. Fingers crossed.


  1. You guys are the home of the milkshake factory...yumminess all around!

  2. Oh no! Do you know WHY it didnt work on the grill? Surely it cant mess up steaks, right? (hopefully I didnt jinx you)
    I LOATHE when all the salad dates are bad... I've walked out of a place for that

  3. Yikes... caught on fire?! Haha!
    Walmart is the worst, but I also find myself there several times a year because their prices are usually so good. Sigh.

  4. I feel like almost any location on earth gets a whole lot better when you're not in an overcrowded city. Too many people too close together doesn't seem to be a great recipe.
