Sweet Ending to a Perfect Summer Day – Grilled Peaches and Plums with Vanilla Ice Cream
Aaaahhh summer. Days like today are the reason why I love summer. Ask me if I love summer when I am dragging around town running errands when it’s almost 100 degrees out… not so much. But today was perfect. We took a short ride (30 minutes) to New Smyrna Beach where we spent most of the day playing in the waves and sand. Now, I’ll tell you that my days at the beach are not the same relaxing days as they used to be, these days I am constantly on watch and can’t relax for a second, my 3 1/2 year old son jumping monster waves while my 17 month old daughter is speed crawling the opposite way…aaah! (as I am sure moms everywhere can understand!) But something about being near the ocean just brings a sense of calm. I always leave the beach tired in a good way, feeling refreshed.
Here are some pictures of the cute little farm stand that we stopped by on the way home. Their farm was right off the road in a small town called Osteen. It’s run by a couple and their daughter that live right there on the farm. They were very friendly and super nice. I asked them if they get a lot of business from the beach traffic and they told me that it has slowed down a bunch since the gas prices are so high. That made me sad because they are so far out of the way I can’t imagine they get too much local traffic. So if you are ever driving down 415 from Lake Mary to New Smyrna stop by and pick up some produce from them! : )
