For dessert, we had some tasty and moist Coconut Cake with vegan cream cheese frosting.
I always make my parents pose for family selfies when I visit.
Later in the evening, when the sun was setting, my mom and I took the canoe out for a spin around the lake. After both of my parents retired, they moved to a lake house, so we can just go out the back door and get in the water. Love it!
The next day, I got up early and drove to the nearby Tohi Trail, a half-mile paved loop, to run my planned six-miler. My parents have only lived in their new town since last fall, so I'm still exploring new places to run. Since it was only a half-mile, I didn't run the whole thing on that trail, but I did a number of loops and ran the rest in the nearby neighborhood.
When I got back to my parents' house, my mom was finishing up our Father's Day brunch. She made the BEST Vegan Breakfast Pizza! It had a crescent roll crust with gravy, Impossible sausage, Just Egg, and Chao cheese. Definitely a new favorite brunch treat. They usually have champagne for mimosas, but they were out so we spiked our OJ with a citrus-y White Claw. Classy!
After breakfast, I always like to do yoga on their dock. My mom snuck out and started taking pictures of me during my practice, so I did a few poses just for her.
Here's a picture of me and my dad. He's really the best! My dad has always been the cool dad. He's a biker and an outlaw who does what he wants. And he has a heart of gold. He's about as punk rock as they come, and he taught me to always follow my own path and not give a damn what anyone else thinks.
