Just Another Saturday

We headed out for our Saturday morning trek to Farmer's Market. We scored some free strawberry shortcake, listened to a silly local performer, picked up a few tomato plants, and decided to purchase some honeycomb for the kids to taste test.
Then it was off to the library. Russ picked out a couple books and attempted to play chess with Levi. I piled up a stack of books and DVDs while trying to prevent Leif from escaping.
Unfortunately, the most picture-worthy scene happened next in Costco where I was, of course, without my camera. All 3 boys had grabbed a book and were stuffed in one cart, reading and oblivious to the world around them. Russ and I didn't know what to do with ourselves as we are used to spending the entire shopping trip keeping the boys corralled.

We headed home for ham and cheese sandwiches and honeycomb for dessert. Mmmmmm.
Do you notice the boys wearing jackets? Again! We have had a cold, wet, miserable spring. Other than the two days of 95 degree weather. What is up with that? It feels like March. This is getting ridiculous!

Ian would be jealous if he saw your honeycomb picture. Just this morning he asked when I was going to go to the market - I typically go every Saturday with only one kid in tow. Two weeks ago he accompanied me on a quest for honeycomb - and the honey people were all out! Today Tim was working and it was supposed to get HOT (it was 92 yesterday! no jackets here!). Me and three kids and several thousand people on a blistering day at the market? I think not. So Ian has to wait another week. What did your boys think of the honeycomb (or have they had it before?)?

Heidi,

I can just picture the boys all crammed in the cart with their books! I do wish you had your camera! One of these days we should post just pictures of our kids with a book. I have so many of them falling asleep in places with a book lying on top of them! I just can't resist those pictures! Wow the power of a book...and what lies within...

Carole~ Funny that Ian had been wanting some honeycomb! This was the first time my boys had eaten honey in the comb. They really enjoyed it. :) We actually had rain off an on for our Farmer's Market trip. Russ goes with us so it's a family outing. And our market is much (much, much) smaller than yours. :)

Niki~ Thanks for stopping by!

This Country Girl~ Wouldn't it be fun to do a linky thing with everyone posting pictures of their kids reading?! It is one of my most favorite sights. :) I'd do the linky thing if I had any idea how.... Yes, the power of a book.
