Celebration Saturday!

We had a great weekend! It was a little cold and rainy but that certainly did not dampen our celebration! :) We were originally scheduled to camp with our church from Friday to Saturday but the weather cancelled that plan. So, we took the boys to the organic csa farm were my cousin has been working. It was wonderful. The boys ran around and played with the dog and cats. They saw the chickens, the pigs, and the calves. And the bonus was seeing new baby chicks - a first on their farm. A chicken had laid eggs and sat on them and therefore they had escaped the fate of most eggs on the farm - the baby chicks were adorable!

Saturday was distribution day for the farm so people were coming to get their vegetable shares. Patrick wanted to know if we could buy some carrots - he loves them! :) Right before we left, we were so blessed to be given carrots, beets, spinach, lettuce, swiss chard, kale, garlic, green onions, okra, acorn squash, butternut squash, eggplant, and radishes. We also picked some raspberries and bought a few dozen farm eggs. It was such a great day and we loved seeing Leslie!

After we left, we went to a locally famous restaurant called Ivanhoe's. We enjoyed lunch there - although the real reason to go there is their 100 sundae and 100 milkshake choices. Yes, we had that, too. :)

Here are a few pictures from our fun weekend!
