Their new house is beautiful, with a huge backyard, pool, and water feature.
I walked around and took some pictures soon after I had arrived!
It was hot and sunny... until...
The clouds started rolling in and we could hear thunder. How dare it rain on my first day of summer vacation AND during Rebecca's pool day while she was visiting from Seattle! We moved the party inside the porch.
And watched it pour!
Sadie was scared, so she was wrapped in a blanket.
Lilly wasn't too affected by the thunder.
We kept ourselves occupied, while the lightning and thunder was directly over us!!
Eventually the rain cleared away and all too soon it was late afternoon.
I came home ready for something cool and refreshing, since I never actually got to swim in the pool! I decided a milkshake might be just the thing.
And it was. I call this a banana-almond-coconut-milkshake.
1 sliced, frozen banana
3/4 cup almond milk
1 tablespoon shredded coconut
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 scoop stevia (optional)
nonpareils and extra coconut for garnish
Put all ingredients in blender (except those for garnish) and blend until smooth. Top with additional coconut and nonpareils.
I'd definitely recommend this milkshake on day you get rained out from the pool... or any other day you need something cold and sweet to comfort you.
