Saturday Morning Scene

Good Saturday morning to you!!!

I'm SO thrilled it is Memorial Day weekend and things are starting to get busy in this sleepy little beach town.  Everything seems a bit more alive and I just love the start of summer!!!  My aunt and uncle from Michigan, whom I adore, are in town for the weekend and I'm so excited to spend time with them - I have not seen them since my wedding 3 years ago and this is obviously the first time they've met Addie so I know its going to be a fun weekend!

We are headed down to the farm this morning to purchase some chicken (not live ones - these have already been prepared to cook), eggs, pork, and fingers crossed - some beef if they have any.  We try to do the natural and orgainc thing as much as possible in our house - within reason - and I do try to buy all natural meats but I'm very skeptical of what I'm really getting so I found a farm that sells the meat from the animals they raise on their farm.  The family that owns the farm encourages you to visit and see the animals and this will be our first time going to see everything and buy from them so I'm very excited!!!  I also think it will be fun to see Addie's reaction to all of the live animals they have that you can play with! 

After we get back, I'm hoping to enjoy some time pool side with the fam!!!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday!!

Happy Memorial Day weekend!!!

Sounds awesome! Like you, I really like the idea of all natural and organic, and I for sure try to choose that for baby always, but not always for me.
I'd love to get to visit the farm where the meat is coming from, rather than pay the $6 lb and more! for the laura's brand they sell at the store.

How fun! It made me laugh when you clarified that you weren't bringing a live chicken home...now THAT would be some interesting blogging for sure!

Have fun with your family..I just love introducing Connor to new family members. It's so special!

i'm jealous of all your beach and pool talk. The weather is so gloomy here and even if it was sunny, I refuse to put this huge prego body in a suit. I don't see myself in bathing suit at all this year. Maybe I should look in to a wet suit! :)

Have fun at the farm...and on your purchases! I'm sure Addie will have so much fun!

I have heard great things about Full Quiver. I know they sell produce & such at the farmer's market at Croc's during the summer. We've never purchased from them, but I think I might have to!

A lot of places in Pungo offer CSA shares, too, but Adam is reluctant to join since we grow so much in our own garden.
