saturday we enjoyed the first farmers' market day of the year! go ahead, laugh. it is mid june and we are just tasting summerish things. this is our life in north dakota. the truly funny thing was, the produce booths were sold out immediately. meaning we missed the goods. rather than crying, we soaked up the sunshine, browsed the crafty crafts, sampled fresh salsas and cinnamon roasted pecans. the background was bumping with some sweet ethnic sounds.
saturday was world refugee day, a neat celebration in the square for all the new americans in our town. elijah was in heaven with the music, and the dancers were ace.
i needed my produce though, so we popped into the organic grocery on the way home-we live only a block away from all the town square action. elijah chose a one pound tomato and a beautiful green cucumber and we headed home.
this is our front yard.
the town square is straight down this sidewalk. we are loving the new hanging plants everywhere. while we were inside eating lunch, i heard a funny sound. after a minute of wondering, i realized it was the silly songs of an ice cream truck!! i snatched elijah out of his seat and hustled out the door, barefoot and racing to the corner.
the truck was driving away. sugar.
now i know what he sounds like and that he actually makes stops outside our door!
lookout mister ice cream truck, we are waiting for you.
we have plenty of dollar bills ready to offer you in exchange for your frozen treats.
