Yesterday morning we went out to breakfast and then headed over to the Farmer's Market. Above is a picture of our bounty:
- farm fresh eggs
- locally pastured, grass-fed beef
- heirloom tomatoes
- fresh pasta
- string beans
- Italian zucchini
- corn on the cob
- Gala and Macintosh apples, nectarines, and two types of plums
We really had a wonderful time, and I hope to make more of a habit of going to the Farmer's Market each week, before we do our regular grocery shopping, or even plan our weekly menu.
We had planned to go straight from the Market to do some scooting on the Huckleberry Train, then to the library, then perhaps lunch and Hand n Hand Park. But, we ended up buying stuff that needed to be refrigerated, so we had to head home. Once home, Bob started working on mowing the lawn, and I took Stephen grocery shopping for the rest of our weekly groceries. That's when things started to get less fun and little more "normal."
The kids were really having a blast playing together and with their toys, though, so we all ended up having fun. First, I had a ton of fun scooting with them in the driveway (I seriously need to get my own, grown-up scooter!), then Bob did a bunch of playing with them and their Geotrax, which I worked on a couple of projects around the house.
We ended the evening by grilling out the local beef along with my awesome salmon kabobs and the fresh corn on the cob. Dinner was amazing! Have to say, the salmon stoled the show! Salmon kabobs are like two sticks of buttah!!
All in all, it was a pleasant day. We didn't go to all of the places I wanted to go to, but the boys had a lot of smiles and fun times (they did a lot of imaginative play together), so I would consider it a success!
