june fruit with greek yogurt & almonds. {grain-free & vegetarian}


8 June 2011

Maine is warm. Very, Very warm. We went to the Sandy River with the pups for an evening swim & worked up a little appetite. The water is perfect right now because it is not too low & is still cold. The walk to the beach was shady & breezy--a relief from the dense humidity. The pups, on the other hand, opted for frolicking through the dandelion-grown field. Maude chased a butterfly for way too long!
After our refreshing evening at the river it was time for a happy dessert!
