a Saturday morning

On this Saturday morning, Paul, Finn and I found the first strawberries of the season at our farmer's market. I'm sure in the next few weeks we'll have strawberries coming out of our ears, but for now, it was nice to see the early birds.

Following the farmer's market, we hit our favorite local coffee supplier via airstream.

Our next stop for the morning was the Earth Day Fair happening at a local college. We were happy to see some of our favorite haunts, including the above coffee supplier, our favorite used bookshop and our kids' summer camp, had booth representation at the fair. One of our favorite sights was the "veggie dog".

Finn enjoyed meeting and learning a little about the owls.

And the muffin on a stick from Slow Food brought a smile to his face.

By the time he took a turn on the African drums, he was about done for the morning.

But what a fantastic way to spend a Saturday morning!


  1. Looks like a fun day! Oh, my little guy would have flipped over the owls! Me too for that matter.


  2. We still have a couple of weeks until our market opens, but when it does I expect so see some early strawberries--I can't wait!

  3. Muffin on a stick - brilliant! Sounds like you all had a lovely weekend.

  4. looks like a perfect day. love the veggie dog and muffin on a stick!

  7. Muffin on a stick?!? Holy cow, now I know where my Monday is gonna go!

  8. Oh my gosh...look at those yummy strawberries!

  9. That is certainly a viable option and as technology advances, it becomes easier all the time for even the most technologically challenged people to create a website about knitting Merkintärenkaat
