Saturday morning we all woke up and went to the North Carolina State Farmer's Market. *Love* that place!! We bought a lot of fruits, veggies, and the best homemade baguette! Yummm! I brought my camera along to the Farmer's Market, and took some pictures of the great produce! The fruits and veggies (and bread) look fantastic and taste even better!! It's always a team effort picking everthing out... And this is the reason I hate cooking, don't usually have to cook, and why my wonderful husband cooks 95% of our meals....
Brushetta CapreseGOURMET! I choose gourmet please! :) My husband is a fabulous cook, and really should consider opening a restaurant someday! :) I am a good baker, so, honey... when you open this alleged restaurant someday, I will make all the desserts. :) LOL. So, the above... that was our dinner last night. :) Yum. Made so lovingly by my handsome hubby!

Anyway. After the farmer's market, we went hiking a little bit (pictures I took while hiking are below)...
and then we took Angelina to the mall, and... she got her EARS PIERCED!!! Pictures coming soon! She was *so* brave!! Immediately following that, Angelina and Zoe spent the night at grandma and papa's house (my parents). Mike and I had a date night. I absolutely *love* date night!! We went to a place called Five Guys Burgers & Fries... best burgers EVER!!! Better than In N Out hands down! Then we went to R.E.I. to get a hiking backpack for Mike to carry Zoe in. Went to Starbucks, came back home, and relaxed. :) It was nice.
Sunday, I slept in while Mike mowed the front and side yard.
The back will be finished when this 100 degree and 90% humidity weather goes away! :) Living in NC, it can be hard to get the yard mowed in under 2-3 hours. And that is ONLY mowing. :) I got up and watered some plants, and ended up spending the majority of the day outside while Angelina played with some friends on the slip n slide, and wading pool. It was was TOO hot!! But, I ran through the sprinklers on occasion with Angelina to cool off. ha ha! Zoe napped most of the afternoon. Then Mike made that amazing dinner, we gave the girls baths, they went to bed, and we chilled out! :)
And... this is why I can't stand Japanese Beetles!! Look what they did to my hibiscus' leaves!
Friday Zoe decided to add to the list of things that she can do... she can now go from the crawling position straight to the sitting position! BIG milestone! :) I was a very shocked and proud mama! :) You go Zoe. Mike keeps swearing that she said *Dada* this morning, but I am not so sure. ha ha! We'll see if she says it again. Zoe's 2 teeth are coming in like crazy! She shoved my finger in her mouth earlier, bit down, and for the first time I yelled "YOW!" She looked at me with a perplexed look, and laughed. ha ha.
Here are some pictures of my girlies from the weekend. :)
Just after eating her breakfast this morning. She had Beech Nut's "Good Morning: Country Breakfast". And, of course... loved it!
