To Market

We drove out to the farmer's market this morning so I could buy pastured eggs, fresh Fredericksburg peaches.  I also ended up buying a bag of pecans from a little old man who said he has about 50 pecan trees on his property!

On the way, Camden said, "How are we going to the City Market?"  (The city market is a part of the Ratatouille video game!)  Cade said, "Food market, Camden.  It's called the food market."  And my response, "Umm, it's actually called the farmer's market.  We're going to the farmer's market."  Not sure how I got blessed with such adorable kids!
We looked at a few of the booths and there was one that sells local honey.  They also had a display container that contained tons of honey bees and a beehive.  There were a few bees flying around which meant they were flying around us as we stood there.  I was freaking out on the inside but I stayed cool!  I have a ridiculous fear of bees/wasps/flying, stinging insects but I never let on to it because Cade has developed a fear of them, too.  I don't want him to be afraid.  I'm always encouraging him to be brave so I figure I better do the same.  Anyway, we only stood there for about 10 seconds before we hightailed it out of there!  We ended up at the little playground and the kids got to play for about 20 minutes.  There was a nice breeze but it was so darn muggy (it had rained a little earlier) and the sun was blazing hot!
Cade made that face because he didn't want me to take any pictures of him.  He says everyone will laugh at him.  I told him if anyone laughs, I'll beat them up! :-)
