Life’s a Picnic

by Cait on July 3, 2012

Another great day comes to a close.

Chad and I headed out for a 4-mile run in this perfect weather. If only weather could be like this all the time – a cool breeze always blowing at your back!

We came home, showered and then Chad, myself and his aunt packed up the picnic basket and headed to our barbecue!


We had all the makings for a great cookout –


I even manned the grill


Onto it went corn (fully in the husks per Chad’s aunt’s instructions) and homemade turkey burgers!

The corn smelled incredible while it cooked!


I definitely want to use this method in the future.

While the grill did it’s thing, I threw together a salad…


Mixed greens, avocado, shredded carrots, walnuts and dried cranberries.

And Chad’s aunt Denise (who joined the party late last night!) cut up the cantaloupe:


Which we all greedily snacked on before dinner


Before long we were pulling everything off the grill and digging in!


Turkey burger on whole wheat buns, topped with colby cheese, avocado, mustard, ketchup and lettuce.


Salad on the side and a couple of kettle cooked bbq chips for crunch!

And then it was time for CORN!

So unbelievably good.

After corn it was dog time!

Can you tell we had a puppy on our hands?


She was absolutely adorable. It took all my strength not to steal her. Her coat is super soft – it’s like snuggling with a fleece blanket when you hold her!

The rest of the evening was spent simply enjoying each other’s company…

So much fun.

To cap off the perfect summer evening Chad and I stopped for some gelato!
