IMG_1329 IMG_1328 you guys, saturday morning. it was a pretty great one. our favorite food truck was back from their mini vacation and we totally had our act together as a family of four...so, we decided that a trip to the farmers market was in order. we were out the door, bright and early so that we could beat the summer heat and have plenty of time to pack in all the breakfast goodies AND a grocery trip before the next baby feeding time. as per usual, ridley slept through the whole shebang. seriously. the baby life is tough.

we grabbed a table and arranged the uprooted kitchen spread. tempeh breakfast sandwiches, a trail mix cookie, a berry scone, and chocolate zucchini bread. a finest in vegan and gluten-free feasting. and elinor made sure to nibble on a lemon wedge so she could show us her best "sour face". that might have been my favorite moment of the morning. she's such a crack-up.

the afternoon was spent napping and dancing* and coloring. and eating tasty tacos. because, summer.

*okay, let me talk about the dancing for a bit. elinor has been a total dancing queen lately and it is awesome stuff. she takes my phone and moves through my playlist, choreographing special dances for each song. some are more interpretive and others are full-on street style. popping and locking. seriously edgy moves. this dancing obsession popped up in the past few months and has been exacerbated/enhanced/encouraged by our summertime guilty pleasure, so you think you can dance. thank goodness for hulu so we can watch that show. i love it. (and ben will kill me...but he loves it too.) we don't really watch much tv but that is one show that is just feel-good. and elinor is a big fan. she yells, "cue music!" and sets herself in the middle of the floor in the living room and copies the moves. it is AMAZING. watching her interpret the moves into her own version is the best.

but, back to food. on sunday morning, i made some cherry "nice cream" for us to enjoy before church and it was like summer in a bowl, i tell ya. we love this stuff and we ate a pile of it. and is there anything better than enjoying dessert for breakfast? well, maybe breakfast for dinner. i do like breakfast for dinner...

sunday afternoon was easy-breezy and leisurely. the kiddos napped while ben and i got some stuff done around the house and then we enjoyed some whole-lotta-nothing time together on the couch. it was perfect. we snacked and chatted and relaxed. it was just enough to help us reboot. and gave ben the boost he needed to get in the kitchen and get down to business making some pizza for us. what a way to wrap up a weekend.

and speaking of wrapping up...here's a smattering of adorable pictures of the darling threesome that i am blessed to call, "mine". they really are the best. and how dreamy is my man? a little one on each arm. swoon. gosh, i've got it good.
