To the Market We Go

The first half of our day today was spent doing various chores around the house. David mowed while I did kitchen cleanup and vacuumed up all the Maverick tumble weeds. 

While I was getting ready for the day, Ayden got an old tube of mascara out of the trash. I didn't think he'd be able to get it open so I let him play with it. He was sitting right at my feet playing with a few small items, mascara tube included. All of the sudden I had that moment that all moms experience once in a while. You know, that moment where you all of the sudden think to yourself, "he's way too quiet..."  I turned around and looked down to see that Ayden had figured out how to get the tube open and hen proceeded to use the mascara wand as a hair brush. Awesome. 

At least its in his hair instead of his eye!

Once we were all ready to go (and the mascara had been scrubbed out of Ayden's hair), we set out for the farmer's market!  We always enjoy the market. It gives us a small taste of the city and gives us a chance to talk with like minded folks. David made a couple of contacts who said they would LOVE to have some volunteer help. David can learn a thing or two and they have some extra hands during the peak of their season. Everybody wins!  We bought a couple of things then walked to a local juicery. We got a mixture of Granny Smith apple, cucumber, lemon and ginger. Fresh juice is always so exhilarating and tasty. Ayden fell asleep during our walk back and transferred to his carseat without waking up. 


We are about to switch to a convertible carseat and I've been worried about having to wake him if he falls asleep. We've had a couple of times recently where he transferred easily without waking, though, so I think it's going to be just fine. The older he gets, the more soundly he sleeps. This is a great thing!

Have you been to a farmer's market yet this season?

  3. I have lots of those "He's being too quiet moments"
    Usually I'm right and he's into something he shouldn't be!

    1. Yup. I'll leave him playing and know that as long as I can still hear the activity, it's okay for me to turn my back. As soon as there's silence I know he's up to no good! Haha.

  4. My son was super quiet the other day and when I found him he was "reading" to himself. I posted it on Facebook. It was a much better scenario than I was imagining as he is currently potty training! Lol we have missed the farmers market the last several weeks, but we're determined to get out! Also waiting on tomatoes and strawberries in our garden! It's been weird weather!

  5. Yes, and I couldn't live without them. We live in a small community and they have a farmers market outside the library every Wednesday and Sunday.
