It's Farmers Market Season!

It was a beautiful week for the opening of our local farmers markets

On Thursday, we enjoyed a lovely picnic on the grass at the Tacoma Broadway Market. This midday market features plenty of lunch vendors for downtown workers, but many families attend as well. Henry and I shared a combo meal from Gateway to India. Henry's favorite is definitely the chickpea curry; he ate his portion, and then devoured mine too.
Henry LOVES chickpea curry.
Yesterday, we met up with friends at the 6th Avenue Market for dinner. After more Indian food, we headed over to the produce stalls where we found purple asparagus and apples. Our favorite vendors here are the fish mongers.
Henry requested an apple for dessert -- YUM!
 We are very lucky to have an array of farmers markets in Tacoma -- daytime, evening and weekend options can fit almost any family's schedule. 

Are your local markets open for the season? Who are your favorite vendors?

Trying out travel placemats

Eating out with Henry can be a messy business, so I'm always on the lookout for ways to make it a little less so. Recently, we tried out two different types of placements designed for kids. Since Henry is still practicing how to eat from a bowl or plate, a placemat helps to make clean-up easier. Also, sometimes Henry wants to chew on the edge of the table, so a placemat helps protect the table from his sharp teeth.

The first product we tried was the TinyDiner Placemat. This item receives rave reviews from other baby-led weaning families so I thought we should give it a try. This placemat has suction cups along the sides to help it stay on the table and a catch tray along the front edge to collect dropped items. When baby is done eating, it rolls up and can be tucked in the pocket of diaper bag. It is reusable and dishwasher safe.
The first couple of times we used the TinyDiner, Henry was distracted by the catch-tray. As you can see in the photo below, he spent a good portion of our …

Feeding Our Family at Disneyland - Rides and Sweets Treats

A Disney trip just isn't complete without a few sugary goodies and we definitely found our share of desserts. I don't talk much about desserts on this blog, but Henry wanted to make sure we included his favorite Disney treats, as well as his top ride recommendations for preschoolers.

Disneyland covers 85 acres and California Adventure is another 72 acres so we were definitely tired at the end of each day. Nana's pedometer showed that we logged 8-10 miles per day. After spending all day walking through the parks, it was enjoyable to end each day with a special sweet. Some we shared, and others Henry got to eat on his own.
