Doughnuts are running fuel. Just FYI.

Happy National Dougnut Day! My girls started the day off right with cronuts (glazed croissants).

Don't worry. I'll reward myself for this morning's 75 minutes of pool running later. With a doughnut.

Yesterday we hit up another splash pad (after my pool running session, of course). Because three splash pads in four days just makes sense. Except maybe to Princess Grace, who was bored with just her sister and my nephew to play with.

Ellie Bean, on the other hand, kept herself entertained. All it took was a pair of goggles.

I kept myself busy eating my nephew's toes.

Then we headed home for the perfect summer meal: BBQ spare ribs, corn on the cob and watermelon (I should use a smaller plate so my meal doesn't look so sad). Bonus: no one acted like I was poisoning them when I filled up their plates.

Pool or splash pad?

What is your favorite summer food?



  1. Which splash pad is this? Looks like a lot of fun.

    1. It is in Highland by City Hall. It is a lot of fun!

  2. I agree, doughnuts are excellent running fuel! I ran a 100 miler a few months ago and they had glazed doughnuts at the starting line. I considered the possibility that this could be a bad idea, but ate one anyway. And it worked like a charm!

    1. I'll have to remember that if I ever do an ultra! BTW, I put your Doughnut 100 on the race calendar. Congrats on yet another 100!!!

  3. That picture of Ellie is AWESOME! We need to hit up that splash pad next time. I like the pool and the splash pad for different reasons, so it depends on my mood and the reason for the trip there as to which one I like better. I hope you got your donut.
