To market, to market

October 16, 2012

I have noticed lately that I do a lot less supermarket shopping than I used to.  My massive coupon-filled weekly Meijer excursions have been replaced with small trips to the local grocery store or farmers market a few times a week. I'd like to say that I have made the switch for noble reasons, such as to support local growers, or to buy more nutritious food for my family.  But let's be honest.  The main reason I do it is because its easier with two kids!

This morning was a cold but beautiful autumn day.  We bundled up and headed out to the farmers market for one last chance to get fresh tomatoes.  There were lots of other goodies there, too.  Luke had a blast helping me pick out produce, especially the decorative gourds (which he calls "my pumpkins"). Then it was on to the tea shop, which just happens to be right next to my favorite consignment shop, so I just had to have a look. :) Since I consign with them I didn't have to pay anything for the gorgeous Boden sweater I found - score! Happy kids, happy mommy!

Here are the boys posing with all of our treasures!

Every time we go to the farmers market, Luke wants to see the animals. I guess that's what I get for teaching him that animals live at farms.  He is always so confused.
