We're baaaaaack!

Oh hey!!! I love the fourth of JULY! I love spending time up at the cabin (for those of you who guessed.) with family, roasting marshmallows, hanging out on the paddle boat, fireworks and the rodeo! Doesn't get much better! But I also love coming back home and getting back on schedule (the twinners appreciate this just as much) And settling back into normalcy. Here are a few pics from our crazy weekend!
T&B's FIRST RODEO! They loved it! We even were able to teach them how to MOOOO! & whenever they saw the cows they would Moooo! 

T and I swinging on the swing! He could spend HOURS on the swing. He loves it!

We even hung out for a little while in the paddle boat! Since my babies don't like water I was a little nervous but they did great! 

Since the fourth fell on a monday we packed up and headed home! When we arrived home Brent and I both decided due to the holiday we would have a BBQ! Its a must!

On the menu?

Turkey Burgers with all the fixings!
Grilled Asparagus
Sweet Potato Fries 
Grilled Peaches!


I only had about a Quarter pound of Lean Ground Turkey so I added the following
1/2 C. Old fashioned oats
1/3 C. Oat flour
1 egg white
1 tbsp of  Rosemary
1 Tbsp of Oregano 

I mashed it all together and formed two perfectly sized patties!  Everything came together beautifully! I topped my patty on a bed of lettuce with tomato, onion (the size of your head).. cucumbers, with a smear of grape seed veganaise

Grilled Peaches are the bomb. They are so simple and become the sweetest thing you will ever eat. I sliced the peach in half and covered with agave nectar and placed it on the grill. The Agave becomes like a glaze and is simply perfection! 

We ended the night by relaxing out in our backyard watching all of our neighbors fireworks... (hey free, is free..) and once our backyard neighbors were done we went out front and watched others. (The fireworks that shoot up in the air just became legal in Utah so they were shooting over the housetops for us to see) It was so fun and I didn't have to burn up my own money.. haha! Thanks neighbors! ;)

Q. What is a MUST for your 4th of July Celebration? or for my Canadian readers how do you celebrate Canada Day?

Q. Grilled FRUIT? Grilled VEGGIES? Whats your fav?


  1. Looks like a great trip! And I agree- grilled peaches are seriously amazing. A must for the 4th? Family & friends! Good food always follows. Love grilled pineapple and peaches, eggplant and zucch/squash!
