We have always loved going out for dinner.  It’s such a treat to have someone else cook yummy food for you and clean up after.  Maddie has now hit her I-Don’t-Want-to-be-in-One-Place-for-too-long phase.  We do go out to dine occasionally, but we don’t really take our time with it like we’d like to.  Most of our time is spent entertaining her so she doesn’t freak out.  Last week we felt like a night off from cooking + wanted to spend time outside enjoying this incredible weather!  So, off to the local Farmer’s Market we went.

We were able to stock up on some things like eggs and I bought some fresh baked goods for a creative meeting I had the next morning.  (I think way better with a fresh berry scone in my belly.)   The market always has some fantastic food trucks, so we grabbed some gourmet grilled cheese, some pink lemonade, and some locally brewed beer, threw our blanket down and picnic’d in the park.  Maddie of course loved that she could sit and eat but then get up and run around if she felt like it.  We were able to relax and not worry about bugging anyone around us because everyone at the park was doing the same thing.  This will definitely be a night out we will be doing several times again throughout the summer and into the fall.  Hope you enjoy our little video!
