Today was our Farmer’s Market day! It’s something I look forward to each week; a special thing to do on the day that B is gone 14 hrs or so. Thankfully, it wasn’t 112 degrees out today like last week (slight exaggeration, I suppose:) so the walk to town was much nicer!
I like for the boys to see all the fresh produce and for them to help me choose what to get. I want them to see that food that is good for you can be treats, too, instead of ice cream or candy. I want them to appreciate all the colors and flavors of the fruits and veggies!
Today we got some mini sugar plums, green beans, cucumbers, peaches, corn and coffee cake. Unfortunately for me (since I absolutely cannot resist baked goods), the first table when we walk up is a bakery called “Scratch Bakery” and they sell pretzel bread (which I adore!) but the man pointed out this cinnamon coffee cake loaf which the boys unanimously agreed was our choice of the day.
It was definitely a good choice!
We shared a fresh lemonade, too, as we have been doing the past 3 weeks. There is nothing better than freshly squeezed lemonade! The lemonade man recognizes us by now and gives the boys a cookie to share and each their own straw.
As you can see, they were far too busy sucking up any remaining sweet lemonade remnants to pose for a picture. And can you blame them, really?
