Pastries and Sculptures

The summer of 2017 has been hot, and I'm not being overdramatic. Temps in the past weeks have been up in the upper 90s, and we've had loads of heat advisories when the mercury rises to the 110s. It's not fun.

Especially when all that sunshine beckons. All that warmth and light taunts, then once you're outside, the humidity just kills you, and you turn into a ball of lazy sweat. SO! When the sun's out AND the forecast is for a bearable 85F, you bet your ass I drag Ben out for a quick, early morning walk anywhere! 

This time, I bribed convinced him to a quick walk through Laumeier Sculpture Park after we indulged in a late breakfast from Nathaniel Reid Bakery (which is super closeby!) We took a sandwich to-go (all their sammies are scrumps) and treated ourselves to a kouign-amann which we freaked out about because we'd only heard about it via GBBO. 

Laumeier is a beautiful place to have an impromptu picnic, which we did that day (and people-watching, of course) Then, we zipped through one of their trails (quickly, because the temps were rising!) Delicious and sweaty way to start the weekend, for sure!
