We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are." ~Marjorie Pay Hinckley~

Farmers Market is for the Birds
Jared's gone a whole lot during the week, which Lukas is finally getting more used to, and we're so glad he works hard and earns the big teacher bucks so we can live in a safe neighborhood and have good food to eat. When the weekends hit, I feel like we just cling together for our little lovey dovey hearts' sakes so that we can fill up on Family before Monday hits again. A few times, we have hit up the local Farmer's Market. Many things are of the rare-- very rare-- nature, and priced accordingly, but it's fun to see/try new things. The best feature of our Vista Market for us is the large display of parrots and exotic birds that this man trains, then brings to the market every week for the kids. He sets the birds on their arms, heads, whatever,... and lets the parents take pictures of their cutie pies. We usually make the round of samples and hang out mostly here where Lukas tries to be brave and bold too... as he tries to talk to the stranger in his big voice so that the man can hear him. What's your name? "LUKAS" How old are you? "THREE!" (looking my way to make sure three is right.) and "Thank you!!" when it's all over.
