‘Twas a nice day for a hike!!! Excellent, actually. Perfect weather!
The four of us went to Umstead Park in Raleigh for a 6 mile hike that lasted about 2 hours.
GUESS WHO SPOTTED A SNAKE TAIL!!?!? I’m always on the lookout for predators… I ran the other way!
Ye ole mill
After the hike we headed to Sweet Tomatoes with coupons!!
I love lunch spots like this – a 50 mile long salad bar and buffet. Something for everyone!
-Unlimited food for Dad
-Interesting flavors for Matt
-A plethora of vegetables and ice cream bar for me
-And bread and sprinkles for Mom!
I had a big salad piled high with veggies, beans and a few salads
Sipped some tortilla soup
And dove into this sweet potato seasoned with maple butter!!!! My was that good.
There was lots of sharing at our table. Matt ate half of my potato and I tried about 5 things from his plate (didn’t care for the mac n cheese). Mom shared a bite of cornbread!
But for dessert, it was one for all
I had vanilla/choco swirl with sprinkles, cookies and granola
And mom had sprinkles with a drizzle of ice cream!
Our lunch was late and large, so Matt and I packed sandwiches to have whenever we got hungry again for dinner.
Avocado, cheese, tomato for me. Meatlovers for him!
<3 our mountainous home!
3 hours whizzed by and we’re unpacked and lounging now. Don’t see any dead spider bodies..guess that’s good!
