So we pack ourselves up and head to the canyon to get her into the water. Or head to the mountains to go hiking to cool her off. It’s a great way to keep her cool. She will also opt for a night time car ride with the windows down and her ears and tongue flapping.

A few weeks ago I made a healthy cherry limeade smoothie for breakfast. After making the smoothie, there were still extra limes and cherries left over and my sweet tooth started kicking in. Cookies sounded amazing!
