Today we went to a local fruit/vegetable stand to stock up on some fresh produce. I hesitated to go because I knew it would be difficult to keep track of both boys while shopping (unfortunately I can’t use the stroller there.) Carter helped me pick tomatoes, corn, and cantaloupe. Seth found a green pepper first thing and would not let go of it. He carried his pepper the entire time there, the way home, and for a good 30 minutes after we got in the house. They both had a good time and Carter asked when we could go back as soon as we were in the car.
Sometimes I worry that I don’t do enough with the boys – take them fun places, go on several vacations a year, sign them up for classes, and so forth. But after a day like this – playing outside, doing laundry (which they love – I know that sounds crazy), and going to a vegetable stand, I realize that I don’t need to worry. Kids enjoy the little things and more than anything else, they enjoy spending time with their family. All that other stuff is great but it is not a necessity at this stage in their little lives. I need to stop worrying and enjoy these days with both of them at home. Okay, enough of that. Here are some pictures from our day.
Seth thinks he is such a big boy. For his afternoon snack, he has to have a big boy cup just like Carter. He has already had a juice box and loves to drink from Carter’s lemonade when we go out to eat. It is really sweet to see how much he looks up to Carter.
