On Saturday morning, the family geared up for a morning at the City Market to hang out with Matt and explore all the lovely fall vendors.
It’s a rare occasion that I leave the house without food in my stomach, but we decided to enjoy breakfast there to keep things simple.
Shenandoah Joe’s coffee (half caf) plus a farm EGG (OMG I ATE AN EGG FOR BREAKFAST!) on some of our Great Harvest bread (I swapped out the white roll for something heartier/whole grain) and a banana I brought from home for a dash of fruit. It was a good breakfast!
I got a $.75 refill on the decaf coffee.
I shopped around wearing the baby in his carrier (so glad it’s no longer hot out!) and stumbled upon this amazing new kombucha company – Nugget’s Raw Kombucha
The flavors were soooo good – and I bought a growler of the Citra Hops – it’s like a beer! Where was this when I was preggers!?
I love hanging out at the market because our Great Harvest booth makes a nice home base where I can leave the stroller, veggies and more while I walk around and play with friends.
It was so exciting to see Kori and Kaci here in Cville on their second annual visit!! These gals were visiting from Knoxville and have been regular readers for ages. Loved seeing them in person again! Also fun to bump into Faith and Hillary!
Matt and I spent the afternoon at Seamane and Rob’s Oktoberfest!
These two went all out to celebrate delicious beer and German food
Loved the outfits!
Cheryl braided my hair before she hit the road. I am terrible at braiding my own locks, but she did some cute French braids. Too bad I didn’t get a close up shot since you can barely see them here.
Commercial Oktoberfest and homebrew – the homebrew one! Way to go S + R
For lunch at had bratwurst, pretzel roll, cheese, potato salad and spätzle
I didn’t drink much beer, but I did eat waaaay too many cupcakes!!
Seamane had German chocolate ones and then a guest arrived with a dozen from Sweethaus that are just out of this world good! The frosting…..I think I had the equiv. of 1.5 of them in quarters and halves that we cut up for sampling.
Games included a relay, a pretzel toss, a keg run (which Matt almost won – you have to run for time carrying a 5 gallon keg!) and a beer chugging line.
The babies and kids played games with each other too. Maze had lots of fun getting to know Elinor <3
After we walked home, we decompressed a bit from too many cupcakes and cleaned up the house a bit. Then settled into a simple dinner of leftovers from the night before: steak, mac, salad.
We all went to bed early dreaming of a beautiful Sunday!
