Farmer's Market Fun

I met Karen at her office after work, and we drove from there to the Fullerton Farmer's Market. We met up with Paul, and wandered the stalls, sampling fresh produce and purchasing the upcoming week's veggies and fruits.....

We were joined by Carol, TiJae and young Master Cage.....















who was quick to inform me that I was mistaken, and in fact.....















He was Superman! (Well duh! I should have read the shirt!)

A band was setting up to play, and spent the better part of an hour doing sound checks....it figures.....when I left, I could hear in the distance as they started playing some decent music! If you look to the right of the band, there is a market stall that sells skateboards.....Paul was checking out the funny figure-eight shaped ones that you can see down by his feet. (Click pic) What caught my eye was the tall surf board to his left, at the corner of the stall - with WHEELS. Like a surf/skate board! I would love to see someone on one of those!
















I loved the sights and smells of the market, but one of my favorite parts was the center of the courtyard where they had one of those fountains that shoot water up from random spots, in random fashion.....to the delight of those standing in the midst of it. Tell me these pix, particularly those of the cute little one in the yellow shirt, doesn't make you want to be a kid again, for just a moment.......with not a care in the world beyond "where's that next spurt of water coming from?!!"































































































I mosied on home and unloaded our treasures.....
















And fixed myself the Best Dessert Ever!















Yum!

Brings back memories of the sprinkler in the grass, and three munchkins giggling like crazy...what fun!! And I agree - that looks like the best dessert ever! We do that a lot, and put flax seed over the top.(Presentation is so important, doncha know?!!) Tee hee!
