Farmer's Market and the rest of our Saturday

The weather here has been wonderful.  Today,  we decided to enjoy it as a family.  I say this, like it's something new, but we have really been working on spending time together and being outside as much as possible.  We got up this morning, and went to the Farmer's Market.  They had lots of herbs that I wanted to plant.  We don't have a place for them picked out just yet, so I have to wait another week or two.  I can't wait though.  We bought a few things including a small package of emu summer sausage.  It sounds a little odd, but the lady said it's really lean.  When we try it, I'll let you know what I think.  After the Farmer's Market, we went to get coffee and saw that there was a parade.  I'd totally forgotten that Earth Day was being celebrated today and that's what the parade was about.  I thought it was really cute.

























































We came home from the parade and ate, then went to the park.  We took a couple of balls this time so Ben could play ball as well as on the toys.  It was so much fun.




















































In the past, we've spent a lot of weekends in Kansas City.  It's nice because the kids get to spend time with their Grandparents, but then comes the question, are we robbing our children of experiences here, where they live?  I think that in the future, we will continue to go to Kansas City, but we will need to make sure that adequate time is spent here as well.  Family can always come out to visit us too.
 
Terry also came out and helped with more moving this evening.  The kitchen, while still a work in progress is really turning out nicely.  I'm getting a lot done in there.  Here is a couple of pictures of the kitchen and then the laundry room/pantry area:




















































































And for the heck of it, just because it's so cute, here's a picture of Ben and Sydney after they'd both gotten diaper changes:
