"weekending"

I realize that I almost exclusively only blog about our weekends now. On the weekdays we go through the daily grind…not much to report there…but on the weekends is when we have fun and adventures. Alas, they are always too short. I wish that every weekend could be a 3-day one. One day to party, one day to truly relax, and one day to run errands. It would be so nice to work PT and have every Friday off, but I know that it will just be less pay with the same amount of work. So….probably not going to happen.

Anyway, time for the weekend report!

I decided that I wanted to go to a farmer’s market this weekend. I have heard that it is a great place to take kids because there are many things to smell, touch, and sample. I admit that the quality of produce at the farmer’s market is definitely better, but not worth the skyrocket price. In addition to tasting some peaches, tomatoes, and cantaloupes, we bought mango sorbet, blueberries, and a jar of honey. I think it was $32 in all. Ouch. Who cares about buying local, I am sticking with the grocery stores from now on.

Although after popping in a few blueberries, hubby said with a sigh, “Today is the day I fell in love with blueberries.”

Then it was off to the Air and Space Museum in DC. In reality, Anna is much too young for any kind of museums, but we really like getting her out. Perhaps it was because of the crowd, but she didn’t want to walk when we were inside the museum, but while waiting for it to open, she ran all over the place. I love it that most of the time, she’s a happy-go-lucky girl. Her smiles and laughs are contagious and they make my day. I can say with certainty that they make hubby’s as well. :)

    These weekends make everything worth it. All of the noise out in the world and in our offices all just fade away when we spend little moments like these together as a family. So while every Monday brings along a bit of sorrow, it also means we're one day closer to the next weekend.

  2. Did you notice your blouse was blueberry colored? I bet hubby was talking about the lovely missus.

    And Anna sure does have an infectious smile!
