Cody has taken this week off (well, 85% of it anyway) so it was the perfect opportunity to take Stella to Pike Place Market for the first time. Finally! With Cody wearing her in the Baby Bjorn, we explored Seattle’s carnival of treats. It was her dream come true! She loves walks, and this one meandered through a wonderland of sights, sounds, and smells. Stella squealed with delight, and it was almost too much cuteness for some people to handle–including the woman at Boston Street who had tears forming in her eyes from laughing so much at/with Stella. Our purchases, and the stroll itself, made for a delicious day.
Tulips (10 stems for eight bucks)
Ladybug hat from a craftwoman’s stall (a compliment magnet)
Sleep sack from Boston Street Children’s Store (all of her old ones are too short!)
Strawberries from my favorite produce stand (we’ll use them in tomorrow’s breakfast)
Beecher’s Macaroni and Cheese (we reigned ourselves in and shared a small cup)
Napoleon from Le Panier (we are about to eat this now)
Potato, onion and cheese piroshki from Piroshki Piroshki (polished it off in two minutes while Stella tried to chomp on the paper holding it)
Sweet potatoe orzo from Pappardelle’s Pasta (a side dish for dinner tomorrow)
What a grand outing! Gotta love the market.
