We were very excited yesterday to go to the first day of the Logan Square farmers market! (Well, it’s a year round market, so yesterday was the first outdoor day.) We got there just a few minutes after they opened, took a quick look at some of the vendors, and then grabbed a seat and some brunch tacos.
At $2 each, and absolutely delicious, they can’t be beat.
And neither can the apple cider doughnuts…
Ha! I take that back, Izaak thought the doughnuts were gross!
After lunch we more slowly made our way through the market again…
And after the market we took a walk down Milwaukee…
Izaak’s new favorite thing is to hold hands while walking.
We then spent the rest of the afternoon napping and generally being lazy—which was perfect for a hot afternoon.
This past week was relatively quiet, but good. Derek has been savoring his last days of spring foraging and the boys and I have spent our time hanging out at home and the park, mostly. Not a lot of running, which has been nice.
The other day as we were leaving for the park we noticed this bug on the side of the house. We still need to look it up though, anyone know what it is? Those are some seriously long legs!
The other morning Izaak woke up at 5 AM, alert and ready to start the day! I was not quite that ready, but we still charged on—we ate breakfast, we played, we got dressed. And by 8 AM we were both ready for a nap. Just as I was going to catch a few more minutes of sleep, Sarah called me and asked if I wanted to join her for breakfast. Yes! A rare treat, for sure. Izaak was sleeping (Derek was home that particular morning), so Paul and I headed down to the Square to meet her.
As we were getting ready to leave we decided we’d also add a little shopping into our day. We took the more pleasant walk back to my house down Logan, which is always pretty.
I hope everyone is having a nice weekend!
Yesterday we unfortunately had to attend a funeral in South Bend–the mother of a friend of ours passed away and we definitely wanted to show our support. Derek was also able to schedule a meeting and the boys and I headed to breakfast and Izaak Walton for a bit. We had a nice time by the pond and on some of the trails–the boys felt very Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer to me.
First, eat the cake.
Then, poke it.
Next, goof off.
Then, start cleaning.
