Summer, so I'm officially back

School FI-NA-LLY ended on the 14th.  I fully intend to do a post on how the year went, yada, yada, but for now, I'm just enjoying being back in the land of the living.  Not that I'm not exactly doing nothing next year.  Oh you know, because I'm me, I fully booked up the whole next year before school was even out.  I took on two little part time jobs, joined a homeschool co-op, decided to help run a Good News Club, and you know, practically keep myself running nonstop again.
But it's SUMMMMMMER people, and I am fully enjoying exactly what that means!  I have been to the water park twice, already road tripped it for a weekend to visit family, went to an amusement park for my girl's birthday's, I'm going camping in the near future, and tonight I visited the local farmer's market with my sister and Liam.
Oh yeah, and by the way, she totally had her baby which I totally did not blog about.  And he's the cutest little thing ever.  I will get to that.  I have post plans.  Never fear. Liam definitely deserves his own little post.

But for now, I am focused on the fun of a farmer's market two minutes from my sister's house.  It was a warm summer night, a lovely time laughing with my sister and walking around and eating.  Let's be honest.  Eating tri-tip and fries off a street vendor is pretty much amazing.
 Although she swears her corn dog was to die for.
 Ainsley lives for fries which she believes should be it's own food group.  I mean....I get it.  And water tastes better with a straw, with ice, and in a cute mug.  It's true.  I don't know why but I like this one.
 Lot's of people set out chairs near the country band so they could sit out and listen.
 I came away with blueberries, white nectarines, and peach flavored local honey.  Though these blackberries were some of the biggest I had ever seen.
 Antique shops were also walked into and browsed.  How could you pass them up?  Well, we didn't.


 Ainsley really wanted to dance.  She had to convince Tessa who stood for about two songs in the middle, frozen, sucking on her shirt.  Then there was a little swaying....then she was in full "attack the song" mode.  They were dancing themselves into a frenzy, and I finally had to pull them away when my sister's black jeans were screaming "I've had enough sun already!" and Krista was about to melt with a little baby carrier acting like a heater attached to her front.
The band and dancing was a big hit.  We may just go back next Friday.  Besides Hunter is kinda mad he had to go to Boy Scout day camp at the fairgrounds a block away and make marshmellow shooters, and shoot guns, and do funny skits, and make hovercrafts instead of going with us.  He just MAY be able to convince me to make it up to him. Just for his sake.

Sounds like he had a rough time.
