Last Saturday was my Dad's birthday! Since my Mom was out of town for my grandfather's funeral still, it was up to Dad, Samuel and me to have a great day together! Not a hard assignment!!
First, I made Apple Puff Pancake for breakfast from the Farm Chicks cookbook.
Then, we packed a picnic lunch and headed up Hwy. 24 to Manitou Lake. On our way, we stopped at the Donut Mill! I remember as we were growing up - we would go for drives in the mountains and stop here to get a donut!!
Unfortunately, they were out of apple fritters (the birthday boy's choice) but the glazed donuts were delish too!
We enjoyed a walk around the lake, our yummy lunch and some more walking. It was a beautiful Colorado day and the perfect temp to be outside and enjoy this beautiful scenery! The leaves weren't turned too much yet - but it was still fun to see the beauty!
