Hubby and the onions!

We had a FANTABULOUS weekend! My husband and I decided to pass on a family friend’s cookout on Saturday in order to spend the day together. Just my hubby, my son and I… boy was that a good idea. Although I’m sure we would have ad a great time at the cookout, we just needed this time together. It is so rare for us to have no plans and no work on the weekend so we wanted to take advanage of the great weather TOGETHER!

We started off our Saturday with a light breakfast of cereal, fruit and buscuits before heading out to the farmer’s market in Montclair. I LOVE FARMER’S MARKETS!! The food is so fresh and so pretty and the energy is always great. I used to go to the market in Union Square twice a week when I was still in school. They are not as convenient to get to in New Jersey but we are going to try our best to find a way to support local markets and farmers from here on out. This was our little one’s (10 months old) first time at a farmer’s market and we were excited to see what his reaction would be to the people colors and of one of my favorite parts THE SAMPLES πŸ˜‰. He enjoyed grabbing on to a cucumber and pointing out some red onions for papa. As we walked through the stations he would try and grab on to veggies as I searched for the right ones. I am a baby wearer so he’s always very close to EVERYTHING I do. I realized what a great classroom a farmer’s market can be. There are colors, numbers, nutritional facts, fruit and veggies to explore not to mention the introduction of new tastes. Our little one enjoyed a little fresh bread and a pickle on a stick for the first time. We spent about an hour at the market before loading the cooler and heading to the next stop.

A google search of things to do lead me to this beautiful place for a family outing. We decided to do the Family Photo Scavenger Hunt. By the time we got to the 4th clue we were getting hungry again and a little tired so we ended up just sitting in the shade and allowing our little one to nurse then play in the grass.

Afterwards we headed to the grocery store before heading home to make vegan pizza. Whew!! Saturday was a very full day. But boy did we have fun!!

For the day of activities I packed a salad, some cucumbers for the little one and raisins. Note to self: PACK MORE FOOD!!πŸŠπŸ‰πŸ“πŸŽ

What do you pack for a day out with your family?
