Sometimes its easy to feed Finley a snack while she sits on my lap. Here we are sharing some carrots and hummus
When Finleys Grandma and Grandpa from NJ came to visit, one of the fun things we did is go to the childrens museum in Everett. This place is cool! We lost Ben and my Dad for awhile in one of the exhibits. There were plenty of activities for Finleys age as well as for older kids and obviously even adults.
erWe have been trying to make a habit of going to the farmers market every weekend to get local eggs, meat, cheese and whatever local vegetables and fruits are in season.
We decided that Pax was most in need of a socializing experience, so he got to go to the farmers market this day. He did wonderfully and we learned that lots of people like whippets
We got eggs, carrots, braising greens, carrots, pears, apples, tulips, potatoes, cheese, pate, sun dried tomatoes and onions
Today we started out our morning with me sleeping in (we decided to take turns on the weekends). Its pretty nice to be able to sleep in one morning. And then we headed out for breakfast in the adorable neighborhood of Georgetown. There are so many fun restaurants and shops. We went to a place for brunch called Geraldine's Counter, which had a 30 minute wait (why do brunch places always have such a long wait?). While we waited we went to the Columbia City Bakery, where I introduced Finley to a the scone. She LOVED it! Maybe its genetic. She had a savory scone. She let me try some and I had to agree that it was one of the better scones I've sampled.
For brunch I had Gingerbread pancakes with apple topping and Ben had a breakfast casserole. We both enjoyed the very strong coffee with cream. Before we left for our hike, we stopped in for some dried meat sticks from Bob's Meats.
We went to a trail in Issaquah for an afternoon hike with Finley on Bens back and the dogs racing through the woods. It was really refreshing to get out of the city.
