blueberry banana sugarloaf

Quickie for you!!  Big day tomorrow…or shall I say early day tomorrow.  I am getting up bright + early to take E + K to the airport at 4am.  Eek!  And, tomorrow is Chris’s first day.  Exciting stuff!

Breakfast was simple but completely delicious.

We used Bob’s Red Mill buttermilk pancake mix for breakfast.  They were fluffy and smooth. Yum.


  • pancake 1 – blueberries
  • pancake 2 – walnuts
  • mini pancakes 3 + 4 – bananas

The bananas caramelized and were awesome.

I also topped it with a little cocoa-coco pnat butter mixed with a drizzle of maple syrup and a little coconut milk.  I heated it up and drizzled on top.  DEElicious.

We packed a ton of food today and went off an on all day adventure!!  It was so so much fun.

  • 1.5hrs bouldering at the rock gym
  • drove to Estes Park
  • drove to Nederland
  • drove to Boulder for an early dinner
  • drove to Sugarloaf Mountain

Driving through the mountains was gorgeous.  Estes Park was packed with tourists, so we basically just drove through.  Nederland is an awesome mountain town with a lot of shops + a few restaurants but all of their power was out today!  It was a bust.  Apparently a truck knocked out the power lines.  We looked around but then headed to Boulder for some grub.

Sugarloaf Mountain was where Chris took me for a hike + dinner on my birthday.  It was just as lovely this time but not quite as clear.

The kids played :)
