In our process of moving we spent a week at my in-laws. We went on a hike with some of the family and my 4 year old little miss. It was a difficult hike but she made it all the way to the top, as far as she could climb on her own! I was a proud mama. She got lots of shout outs on the way up. Her papa took her the rest of the way which was super rocky and lots higher climbing than she could reach.
Probably don’t need to mention this but when we got home we were famished. We had an amazing pancake breakfast waiting for us with pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes and this buttermilk syrup. The combination is pretty incredible and the perfect after hike meal. I’m pretty sure we all stuffed ourselves silly and then made this meal again a few days later. It’s a new favorite for us.
