If you know my Dad then you know one of his favorite foods is... hotdogs. Yes, hotdogs. He can tell you where the best hotdogs can be found practically anywhere in the tri-state area. So when we stopped by for a post-hike, cool-down at Rita's Italian Ice we noticed a hotdog place had opened right next door called, wait for it... Snoop's Dogs.
Jake and my Dad both approved. There has even been talk of starting an annual Lehigh Valley Hotdog Crawl/Bike. Just sayin' - you should probably get on board.
After Rita's and Snoop's we swung by a local farmer's market to pick up some juicy watermelon and oogle the beautiful scenery and the delicious baked goods. Sometimes I forget how rural PA is. I guess when I think of PA I usually think about my house and my neighborhood and forget about the huge open fields and farmland. It's pretty glorious.
^^Nature at her finest^^
^^We had a cookout with... you guessed it - hotdogs, hamburgers and all the fixings for Dad's birthday dinner!^^
^^Sugar-free vanilla cake and sugar-free chocolate frosting for Daddy!^^
