Coffee and Donuts on the River

Last Sunday Scott and I had a little coffee and donut date in a pretty park in Grand Junction, Colorado.

While looking for a place to see, we noticed a mini-river that lines the park, and flows through the through a pretty shaded area (we ultimately decided to take a seat there).

Our picnic was quite lovely, even though it was slightly interrupted buy a group of kids tubing down the river we were sitting over (it was actually pretty cute). We enjoyed a selection of donuts from City Market (best grocery store in the state), and sipped on hot drip coffee from a local coffee shop called Coffee Muggers in downtown Grand Junction.

Out of all the donuts we picked out, the strawberry cake donut was Scott and I's favorite.

To be honest, I really, really enjoyed these couple of moments alone together, in nature, and I'm already looking forward to many more picnics in the future.

Have you been on any picnics lately? What's your favorite kind of donut? Mine's any kind that has maple frosting on it.

  2. I haven't been on any picnics yet but I did sit on a blanket at a softball game. A really cute blanket. Hahaha
