Can you believe it? May 5th, Cinco de Mayo, first day of the Tower Grove Farmer’s Market, and there they were. Delicious, fragrant, juicy strawberries. Ah. I’m ready for summer.
It was the perfect kick-off to a hot 90-degree weekend, and despite certain someones being slightly melty and unpleasant in the heat…
I meant me, not Emil!
… we all managed to have a fantastic time!
We had plenty of delicious local goods from which to choose, though it was hard to decide what we would snack on with our friends once they arrived. At least now we know that everything is delicious!
We arrived at 9am and the market had already been open for an hour. It took the boys about 10 minutes to find the water to cool off (it’s going to be a HOT summer!):
When we met up with our friends Ingrid and Brent and their girls, Ingrid and I ran off to collect food while Brent and Andrew stayed with the kids at the water fountains. We came back with strawberries, rustic bread, salami, cheddar cheese, lemon creme goat cheese, and lemonade.
I must say, despite the heat and the fact that we didn’t stick around for as long as expected (Emil and Oliver were practically begging for a nap), we had such a wonderful time with our friends. Seriously, I just can’t get enough of these two and their awesome girls! We are so so so lucky.
Plus, check out this girl’s hair. Quite possibly the cutest little sweaty curls I ever did see.
We spent the rest of the weekend hanging out on the back deck while the three boys (yes, even Emil got in on the action!) played in the water. And I may or may not have drank some beer. Hope you had a wonderful weekend too!
