Wegner Crystal Mine - Again cause we loved it so much! 2022/10/20

On the road back to Florida there are many paths that we could have taken. There's a special reason though why we picked coming through Arkansas. We had such a good time hunting for crystals at the Wegner Crystal Mine that we just had to come back and do it again!

A Fairlife Milk Protein Drink Taste Test Comparison - All 5 flavors compared

Theresa has really gotten into working out and lifting weights. To build muscles, protein is essential. Theresa has tried multiple kinds of protein drinks and has never found one she likes. That is, until now! 

Theresa - Fairlife has an amazing amount of protein and just tastes like flavored milk! This 150 calorie drink has 30 grams of protein, which is super high. 

All the other drinks have that "whey" flavor, but Fairlife is literally just milk. They've separated milk into its components then mixed it back together with more protein and calcium and less sugar and lactose. It's even lactose free, so even more people can drink it! They are also shelf stable and will last for 1 year! 

And let me tell you, finding all 5 unique flavors was a challenge. Coffee and Salted Caramel could only be found at Sams. The others you might find Chocolate or Vanilla, but Strawberry would be elusive. 
Since doing this taste test, it's become even more difficult to find these. Because of supply chain issues, Fairlife only advertises chocolate and vanilla on their website now, and all the other flavors are gone for now. 

But, since we have all 5 flavors, we've got to do a taste test and see what is our favorite! There's Vanilla, Strawberry, Chocolate, Coffee, and Salted Caramel!

Baja Mango Gem Mtn Dew - Mango Mountain Dew taste test

Another new type of Mountain Dew! Yes! And it's a Baja flavor too! Today we are all trying Baja Mango Gem Mtn Dew! 

This Mountain Dew has natural and artificial mango flavors. 
Patrick - But it contains 0% juice? How does it have natural flavors? 

What can we have to try it with? I thought maybe we could do a Frozen Mango smoothie with Mountain Dew as the liquid base!

Fall Foliage Colorado 2022 - 2022/10/01

Getting back into some blogging after a busy time off. When we last left off, we had just returned from California visiting friends. Now we're in Colorado and it's the start of Fall 2022. 

Fall? That means we need to go into the mountains and see the leaves changing colors! Just like we did back in 2019, we're joining up with my brother Patrick, his wife Megan, and their daughter Avery
