Nate’s Trail Mix

Nate’s Trail Mix

How much do we love our sweet boy? More and more each day.

Over the weekend Nate asked if we could make some trail mix a special way because he doesn’t like all the ingredients that come in the Costco blend of trail mix.

I asked him what he would like in his very own trail mix so we could make a list and I could pick up the items we didn’t already have at the store. As he rambled off what he wanted I wrote down what we didn’t have.

After dinner he and I began to measure out what he wanted most in the mix and added it all to large bowl.

This is his very own mix and he is incredibly proud of it. We love how creative he is. We(he) hopes everyone enjoys it as much as we do!
