Saturday is a Special Day...

..not because I was getting ready for Sunday, but because it was just one of those days. Abbey's a 6:30 a.m. baby now and I decided to make use of the morning. So I hopped on my bike--er...I mean, Erin's bike I hijacked while she was out of town (thanks Erin!). And we rode up to the square for the Farmer's Market. I happened to turn on a street Melody was coming down on her way back from the market, but she can't resist a bike ride, so she went back with me. Then we headed to the park where Abbey had her first taste of dirt. Lovely.

We went back to Melody's and had the blackberry treasures she bought at the market and fresh bread. That's when I realized Abbey had lost a shoe. Somewhere. We'd been all over town. Amazingly we found it but in the meantime, Abbey had been snacking on the 'prize-winning' lettuce in the trailor. The SAME lettuce Melody warned me to wash and then wash again because of the bugs she found in hers. Again, lovely.

That night we had a bonfire in the Basso's new fire pit and made s'mores. It's fun to see Abbey playing with other kids. She's getting so big. Next, I'll have to post some video of her...dun, dun, dun...WALKING!

You're so funny Ash. I love how you tell your stories. I wish I was a better story teller. Did she get the chiggers from eating the lettuce?

Ashley said...

If by 'chiggers' you mean very irritable and insomnia, then yes, absolutely, she has chiggers! :)

What a fun day! I hope her "chiggers" go away soon----but I hear they can't be treated until around 18, and then they return unexpectedly, sometimes for extended periods of time!
