Last Friday, we went to Big City to spend some time with L. Since CT, K, and the Lady Bug were going too, we talked CT into taking his truck and loading it with a couch, table, and baker's rack for L's apartment. Our garage and basement are a bit lighter!
If you remember from last summer, L lives on the 3rd floor. Ugh! The Mr. had surgery, ruling out his carrying anything. One of my crazy cousins lives in L's neighborhood. He also runs a local moving business. The Mr. gave him a call, and he came to our rescue. He helped us move the couch up three flights in 103 temperatures. Bless.His.Heart. We don't see him often enough. (Only when L is moving?!) I think we need a return trip to actually spend some time with crazy cousin! Love that guy; he is so funny!
That evening, we had a slumber party at L's. Even in her small apartment, nobody was on the floor. L gave up her bed to the Bug's parents who haven't been sleeping much. Buggy is a light and restless sleeper. Auntie L was on Buggy patrol all night. (And I'm pretty sure took a nap all afternoon!)
After L's breakfast burritos, we made a trip to the Big City's version of a Farmer's Market. Holy cow! Not quite like Tiny Town's!
Oh, and we might have had a cupcake at 8:30 in the morning. Yikes! Darn those things were good!
We left L and headed to an orchard to pick peaches and blackberries. The fruit had been three weeks early this year, so we were almost on the end of the blackberry season. The Mr. and the Bug sat this one out. Bug finished her morning nap. (I think her Papa might have, too.)
It was a fun weekend, and we have been enjoying a lot of fresh produce on Easy Street. (Today, I need to freeze a few of our purchases so that we can enjoy them for awhile.)
There's nothing like the summer produce fresh from the gardens. And since we elected not to feed the deer this summer, we are buying at the produce markets. Fortunately, buying at Farmer's Markets is almost as much fun as eating it!
