I really need to slow down on my picture taking. It’s a bit out of control and ends with long update posts like this one is going to be. You’ve been warned. I posted our weekly meal plan and prep yesterday, so this is all about the weekend fun.
It started off Friday with Mexican and margaritas on a patio. Clearly it was going to be a good weekend!
Saturday morning we grabbed breakfast at Toast.
Their Cali Benny is incredible. I basically licked my plate clean before we strolled down to the Davidson Farmers Market. It was my first time there this season and enjoyed perusing the booths and getting ideas for future meals. There was so much to see, including goat cheese in the process of forming a rind.
It almost turned me off to goat cheese… almost.
Feeling in the spring spirit, we tackled yard work during nap time.
Then I changed and left to attend Susan’s Baby Sprinkle! She is having her second child, so Jenny threw her a mini-shower, or a sprinkle. It seemed like a full blown shower to me, though, since Jenny is one of the best entertainers I know.
I ate (a lot), sipped wine and really enjoyed catching up with friends and celebrating baby Lydia.
After the sprinkle David, Hailey and I enjoyed a cook out at our friends’ house.
Katie and Adam are beer people, and we enjoyed sipping on some fancy beers they had on hand. Being that I like beer but don’t actually know that much about them, all I can tell you is that they were delicious!
The weather was gorgeous and we enjoyed hanging outside and letting the kiddos run around together.
Have I mentioned how much I love watching kids play together? It melts my heart.
After dinner (well, sort of during dinner), Hailey decided she was exhausted and melted down. The great thing about having dinner with friends with kids is they get it!
Sunday we got to visit Baker’s Farm! Dr. Baker is a friend of ours that has a passion for animals and it shows.
He might be one of the nicest guys I know and we loved the full-farm tour.
Hailey got to pet all the animals, but I think her favorites were the ducks or goats. Her face lit up and she’d run towards them, squealing, with her arms out.
The goats were my favorite, too. Matilda just had two babies 6 weeks ago. I wanted to pack one up and bring it home.
Baby goats are the best. Visiting the farm always makes me long for land and animals myself. I mean, who wouldn’t want these cuties as pets?!
Before we left we tried some of Jeff’s fresh honey from his bee hives.
Incredible. It hadn’t been spun yet, so we put the full honeycomb in our mouths. We chewed it, sucked out the honey, then spit out the remaining wax.
Hailey might have liked the honey the most.
She couldn’t get enough!
We left with fresh eggs, honey and a desire to be farmers.
It was quite possibly the perfect spring weekend!
