Enjoying a Dutch Letter from Jaarsma Bakery....yum!
Des Moines Farmers' Market is one of my all-time favorite places to be on a Saturday morning. Besides the fun people (and variety of dogs) to watch, there are delicious snacks, beautiful produce, 'amusing' (read not very good, but funny) musicans, street preachers, and lots of interesting vendors to visit.GrandPapa thought that Alex would really like a 'train' ride...... she was excited to get in the train, OK with sitting and playing with the steering wheel, but when the it pulled away from the 'station', tears welled up in her eyes and she decided she'd had enough. The kindly conductor brought the kids right back and Alex was able to debark.
She also got to decorate her own canvas grocery bag which was a bit more her speed-- we will bring it to all the farmers' markets in our future!
