Saturday at the Market

Kevin ran in a 5K today. It isn't his favorite distance - he prefers 10K or half-marathon - but it was a charity race, raising money for an orphanage in Haiti.

When he got home we loaded up in the car and headed to the St. Charles Lions Club Farmers' Market. There weren't a lot of farmers there today - one lady said that it is still early in the season. We did get a watermelon and some blackberry vinigarette dressing. I would like to try to buy locally as much produce as I can this summer! We walked along the Katy Trail and then shopped a little on Historic Main Street. We bought some apple butter - a favorite at our house. We only went into a handful of shops - Lucy touches way to many things and just caused a little trouble, so we headed home around 11.
We ended our outing with lunch at Max & Erma's. I had their chicken salad sandwich on croissant - yummy!

This is our second Saturday in a row without specific plans and it has been great!!
