Super Saturday Soaks

Today (Saturday) was an incredibly busy and fun day...

We started out with an exhausted Cutie Face...after refusing to sleep all morning, she finally conked out on our way to the Farmer's Market...

and she stayed asleep on j's shoulder the entire time we shopped!

One of our favorite local pizza places, Mellow Mushroom, was baking their pizza pies outside at the market.

The awesome thing was, EVERY topping they used came DIRECTLY from the farmers/growers at the market today and EVERY $ went to support the market. How cool!

J loved his and ate it while Cutie Face slept. impressive.

The kiddo finally woke up and we headed to the church's playground (the Farmer's Market is held in the church parking lot). She loved it!

After the market, we decided to not go back home right away and headed back downtown. J wanted to go to the Enviro Expo (we went last year and had our fair share of fun so we thought, "why not do it again?")

We parked on the street and ended up walking right past Centennial Olympic Park. I've been there with Cutie Face before but the water fountains weren't working...this time, though, we were in luck!

Since it was 73 degrees outside, we decided to let Cutie Face play in the fountains.

She had SO much fun!

So much fun, in fact, that i wanted to join her!

Yay for a new picture of the two of us! And great memories, too!

This video was hilarious (to me, as a mom...maybe not interesting to you!)

After the park, we changed Cutie Face's clothes + diaper (the spare change of clothes finally came in handy!) and headed to the Enviro Expo.

J and Cutie Face enjoyed sticking their faces through the bug cutouts:

She really wanted to walk and push her stroller but she refused to let me or J touch the stroller to help steer her. Everytime she felt our hand on the stroller, she'd look up and become very frustrated.

Oh the frustrating, full-on tantrums are right around the corner, we can just feel it.

There was this funny bug man that flitted from booth to booth--we always seemed to be running into him.

We wrapped up the expo by taking a spin in an RV. I became really dizzy, just like on a boat. So weird! Cutie Face seemed to love the bed, though!

We finally got home and tried to wind down a bit before we had to head back out again. Our friends from Cutie Face's playgroup generously offered us their tickets to the season opener GA Tech basketball game. And, our church and neighborhood friends generously allowed us to stash a sleeping Cutie Face in their basement while we were gone.

We were SO thankful for a date night! Of course, it wouldn't be a date night without a self-portrait...we managed (or, more precisely, I managed) to continually cut off our heads...massive failure:

We finally found a decent angle and here we are, thankful to just be the two of us!

Phew what a crazy but fun Saturday!
