Today was a double whammy for field trips.
First, we headed to the downtown library with a couple of friends. We started out in the cafe for a treat and coffee for mama.
Then we headed for the library theater.
Amelie sat in story time with the rest of us, but Sera (feeling a little too old for puppets and rainbow songs) just sat in the children’s section and read.
Eventually we all came out of the theater, and the littles read together while my friend Alison and I perused the books.
Alison had found the audio book of Winnie the Pooh, and since one of the narrators was Judy Dench (amazing!) I decided to check out a copy. The narration of these stories is EXCELLENT. And I never knew that Winnie the Pooh wasn’t just a story for babies. Josh was laughing as we listened to it together after I brought it home. In typical british fashion, it is sweet for the children, but clever enough for adults, too.
We are also listening to Around the World in 80 Days, narrated by Jim Dale (my absolute favorite narrator), and the Redwall series. We LOVE audio books!
Later in the afternoon, we headed to the big kick off for our East Nashville Farmer’s Market. It is at a new location this year, and I LOVE it. The old location was a little bit small (or maybe that’s just the Californian talking–I’m used to big farmer’s markets) but the new location reminds me a LOT of the Templeton farmer’s market. Plus it is closer to our house.
The girls wanted to see the petting zoo animals first. This was the softest bunny ever.
The girls were excited to see an alpaca after we were just reading about carding their wool.
Sera really liked the alpaca.
Okay, Sera LOVED the alpaca.
But they also loved the ice cream, the peaches, and the handmade corn tortillas that we scored from the market this afternoon. You can see pictures of the day we were at the market on the ENFM website!
