Time certainly does fly. I cannot believe my little pup, Crosby, is TWELVE years old already! Well, he rung in his dozenth year quite well – pretty sure I’ve never had a birthday that could top this one ;).
Birthday Morning Pancakes (Funfetti Style with Sprinkles!) in the shape of his face… or hearts. You can choose.
He went sailing – although I don’t think he would actually pick this activity on his special day… he still got some quality snuggle time with Kinley!
One particularly gluten free friendly restaurant allows dogs on the porch – but more on this later!
Yes, he got his own birthday cake… the main reason was actually Kin and I have had an incurable sweet tooth lately. Well, I am happy to say it is cured (and there’s still some in the freezer for later!).
Finally? On his actual birthday (the 29th), he had Meatloaf Cupcakes with Mashed Potato Frosting. Yummm – and decorated with hemp seeds!
This little guy is definitely sad his birthday weekend is over. But we’ve got a THREE day weekend coming up to spend some more quality time with the old man!
I have been sitting on these photos for quite some time. Six weeks to be exact. When Kinley and I were looking for restaurants to go to after we ran the Bellin Run, Kinley happened across the website for The Urban Frog in Green Bay, WI. Their menu looked way too good to pass up and they even had Gluten Free and Vegan options! Can’t get much better than that in my book. They’re located right in downtown Green Bay – the perfect urban location.
For an appetizer Kinley and I shared their Guacamole and Organic Blue Chips. The guacamole was delicious. My only complaint was that it was gone just too darn fast.
I decided to get the Pumpkin Wrap. Pumpkin hummus, Granny Smith apple, raw almonds, dried cranberries, and feta cheese on a multi-grain tortilla. I got mine without feta and with a millet & flax tortilla instead. They also had gluten free Teff tortillas so I could have had my pick! I asked for it grilled, but it wasn’t so I ate it how it came. I was too hungry to wait any longer!
Dessert was out of this world good. I wish I lived closer so I could eat it all the time. I guess it might be a good thing I don’t live too close then… This is Frog Cake. Wheat-,gluten-, and dairy-free chocolate cake served with raspberries. Say what?! No wheat, gluten or dairy in the most delicious and moist chocolate cake I might have ever had? Excellent. Now you know why I want to go back!
Along with the food items I had they had very delicious looking smoothies and a bunch of other wrap and sandwich options – with a lot of local and organic ingredients! I really do want to run the Bellin 10k again next year so we have a good excuse to eat here again!
