Mia and I hit the Angel Valley Farms market. They come to town on Wednesdays and it's always fun. It had rained earlier that morning, so there were oodles of puddles for Mia to jump in. She found a fabulous one in a safe area...she splashed and I shopped. I scored a pint of wild blackberries...we ate about half in the check out line. Well, here's a snap or two of our treasure.

Then Melissa and Gwen were having an impromptu playdate that we got in on. It was so nice and relaxing. Sarah with her Leilani & baby Orion were there too. Melissa and I have both been so busy that we haven't seen each other for a while, so it was great to catch up a little.

Before music class....a conversation with a shell:

Mia puts a sea shell to her ear and says: 'mama, I hear the ocean'

then, as if she's talking on the phone: 'hey water, how ya doin' today?'

That evening, I wanted to try some leaf rubbings that pal Andrea did at Casa T. I'm not sure we did it right, but it was fun and colorful.

Oh, Mia was also into water again. She's learned that if she steps on the side of her pool, all the water comes rushing out :)

In the summer, I would love to hit up Angel Farms with you. We can make that our Wednesdays Wellness Outing or something!

My blackberry bush should have some ripe berries in the next couple weeks. You and Miss Mia should come over and we can pick them together.


P.S. Love the leaf rubbings. There's no wrong way to do art.

I'd love to hit Angel Farms too. I've been to the farmers market downtown on a Saturday, but would love to go to one closer.

Looks like you had a fun day!

We always hit Angel Farms on Saturday because it is close to home for us!! If we find berries it would just make my weekend!
