"Our" Park

We don't have a yard, so the small park near our house has become a frequent place to visit. The kids love the fountain area.

as well as the Baskin Robbins. Christopher was asking for more ice-cream here.

They are also pretty crazy about the playground.

Christopher, especially, really likes to just be outside.
There is a farmer's market every Tuesday, year round, and on Thursday from April to October. I will definitely be purchasing most, if not all our fruit and veggies there. This first time, I just bought strawberries. They didn't even make it out of the park.

Yay! Pictures. The kids look so happy. And I am envious of the farmer's market. That sounds wonderful.

Sounds like a neat place. Christopher's t-shirt is great! He's a cutie!

Cute kids!

I love farmer's markets! Most of the meat and produce in the stores here are local - and the farmer's market is a pain to get to. But, I still stock up there a couple times a month or more. We no longer have juice in the house or cookies, candy, ice cream - so, fruit is now the replacement and my kids now eat so much, I'm surprised they don't smell fruity!

And strawberries never make it very far here either!

oh my...those berries look awesome! I bet Christopher loves outside because he can run around without anyone telling him not to touch things! He wants to be BUSY!

The kid's red cheeks are indicative of the temp, I bet? :)

I miss you all.

I'm a big fan of farmer's markets too. I'm looking forward to the local one opening soon. What a great outing for you and the kids.

love love love the pictures - everyone looks so happy and you guys all just really "fit" into your new city. Can you send me the one of ashlyn lying on the grass ontop of Christopher? cheers. A few farmers markets have started up around here too, but not within walking distance which is a bit of a shame. The weather looks amazing too by the way! I am WAY jealous! also loving you finally wore my shirt!
