What a Week!

We were busy bees this week. Here are a few of the things that we got to do:

We went to an organic co-op with Kathy and Josiah. All the fruits and veggies there are locally grown and very tasty. You just have to remind yourself that they are supposed to be smaller than what you see at HEB because they are not altered with crazy hormones or chemicals.

Afterwards, we had lunch with Aunt Kristen, Aunt Renae, and Aunt Sue at Chuy's. Muy delicioso!

Asher got a new riding toy. It used to be some friends of ours, but they graciously gave it to us to use. Asher loves it! He takes a ride almost everyday when we walk down the street to get the mail.

We also went to story time at the library with Tye and Josiah (and their moms, of course.) There were toys and bubbles and books and music! Suffice it to say, a good time was had by all.

Then we took a few pictures outside on the bench. It is always fun trying to get shots of them where everybody is smiling, keep their hands to themselves, and looking the same direction.

I made eggplant gratin with an eggplant that I bought at the co-op. It was pretty good, but I think I used too much salt. We use kosher salt now (you know, with Hannukah coming up) and I think I could have used less. But it still tasted ok.

(I was kidding about the Hannukah thing.)

Asher made friends with the mariachi at Los Vega, out favorite local hole-in-the-wall Mexican food joint, last night. He was fascinated. He loves watching Kris play but I don't think he realized that other people have guitars, too. The pictures are a little dark because I think flashes are obnoxious, but you can see enough to get the idea.

Asher clapped for him and I thought Senor Mariachi was going to cry. He was touched by the applause.

Good times, good times.

Where was the co-op? Did you go into town for that one? So, so, fun, and it was great getting together with all of you for story time last week.

Jamie...I am so proud of you going organic!!! ;) WHere is this place anyway, and why didn't you fill me in when I lived in Humble!!!:) If you like the Kosher salt, try sea salt too--it contains all the minerals, found in salt, before they suck the life out of it in the processing for making iodized salt! I'm out of breath:) I didn't know you guys were regulars at Los Vega too!!! I miss you guys!
