Attention, Willoughby Dog Lovers! Family Fitness With Fido Brings Canine Fun to Norfolk on October 25!

October 12, 2014 2:31 pm

Willoughby dog lovers, rejoice! On Saturday, October 25, from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., the Norfolk Botanical Garden will host Family Fitness with Fido, an event celebrating all things four-legged and fun. Hosted in conjunction with the Norfolk SPCA, this event will feature a dog park, dog-related vendors, pet adoption, and much more.

Leash up your favorite canine pal and join him on a self-guided, two-mile walk through the botanical garden's lush green grounds. With so much to look at, you and your pet will forget you're even exercising. Looking to give back to local animals in need? The Norfolk SPCA will be on hand collecting much needed pet supplies. Be sure to check their online wish list to see what you can donate. Items such as cat food, dog food, pet treats, and kitty litter are in high demand.

Admission to the event is $5 for garden members and $11 for non-members. Seniors, veterans, and children all receive reduced rates.

Fall in Love with Fall Baking

Fall in Love with Fall Baking


Wait, is it Fall yet? The warm afternoons have me confused. I love the crisp and cool fall mornings, but by mid-day, the temperature turns up. So since the mornings have fall-like weather, let’s stay there!

Breakfast can always start the day off right. But if you are like me, you’re thinking, “I don’t have the time to prepare breakfast!” Well, you can make something the night before or even Sunday afternoon to prepare for the week. So when we do have a fall morning you are prepared. Slice and warm up a piece of bread or indulge in a muffin and top it with a teaspoon (or however much you please, I won’t judge you) of butter to melt over it. That will definitely start your day off right. I am sure the family will love you forever!

Try out some of these baked goods:

Apple Muffins with Caramel Frosting

Cinnamon Streusel Quick Bread

Fall Harvest Muffins- This has to be healthy, right?!

Pumpkin Pecan Crunch Muffins

Chocoholic Muffins- I.LOVE.CHOCOLATE. YUM!

Do you have a favorite bread or muffin recipe? Share!

Warm and Delicious Regards,
