All my ducks in one basket together

After our crazy busy past few days, we were able to sleep in Saturday morning...til 8! In AD (after diapers) time, that's sleeping in!!!! Shawn actually slept til 8:30, I was jealous!

Since Shawn's baseball games had been cancelled in the anticipation of bad weather we decided to go to the River Market Farmers Market for some fresh fruit & veggies. We had a pretty time together, but AK was still not herself (I think the reeling affects of the versad from Friday). The kids played @ Peabody Park for a while & had a blast. It's a great very natural play area of slides, tunnels, climbing holes & rock wall which explains why I have no pictures bc between me & Daniel we were trying to keep eyes on both kids plus I was still worried about AK not being completely steady on her feet.

Then we headed to the market area and found corn on the cob, new potatoes, green beans & cantalope. Only problem is that somewhere in the process we lost the green beans...I was SO mad!!! We had lunch @ The Flying Fish in the River Market @ Shawn's request for gumbo. Daniel was happy too bc he enjoyed some mudbugs (boiled crawfish)...some of his favs!!!! AK enjoyed chicken, fries, crackers & a chocolate cupcake! ;-)

After lunch, we walked to the Peabody Hotel to see the ducks. Shawn has seen them several times, but AK never had. She LOVED it!!!

Shawn started doing duck calls & so AK decided to join in! Haha!

Both were amazed by the 20 floor glass elevators as well. We did go for a short ride before heading out & they loved it!

We had a great morning together & AK seemed to be getting back to normal before bed tonite!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!



  1. Crawfish and Gumbo? Sounds like another family meal this weekend.

  2. Great pics! Glad you got to "sleep in". Haha.
