Our family has been SO busy the last few days. Here's a few highlights of the things we've done over the past few days.
Played music at a park for an event called "Pickin' and Piggin'". There was music provided by local musicians and BBQ vendors from all around the state. After I was done playing music, I tried so many different kinds of barbecue. I never knew that it could be so good until I moved here. I'm a big fan of the vinegar-based BBQ. I'm embarrassed to say that before I moved here, I thought Barbecue was synonymous with cooking hamburgers and hot-dogs on the grill. Boy, was I ever wrong
I got a double-dose of my husband's preaching. He preached in the morning at a church about 45 minutes south of here and then in the evening at our home church, First Presbyterian. I thought he did a great job. If you're interested, you can hear the sermon on our church's website: http://firstprescolumbia.org/Media/Audio/Audio_Evenings.asp
I tried to catch my breath yesterday, but that didn't really happen. The boys were quite a handful. They were probably so exhausted from the big day on Sunday. Church is a big event for such little people. In the evening, we all went to the SC Musicians and Songwriters Guild. It was great, we got to hear about different events that are happening in the area that I can possibly become a part of. Also, there was an open floor where musicians could share their songs with us. I would have liked to play, but Owen was sleeping so soundly in my arms and I didn't want to disrupt that. Deacon enjoyed the music too. Andy didn't get to hear much of what was being said because he was too busy drawing cars and trucks for Deacon.
This morning, I woke up and got both kids into the car by 8:00. We went to the food Co-op that I am a part of. I am the nursery worker, so I watched the kids while the other ladies sorted and bagged the food. I really regretted that I didn't get up a bit earlier to make a cup of coffee. I needed it! I was watching 11 children and 8 of them were little boys between the ages of 1 and 3! Needless to say: it was a madhouse! We got home and I've been trying to fit all of my fruit and veggies into the fridge. We are so excited to have such yummy food available to us at such a reasonable price.
I'm off to enjoy some yummy pineapple. I'll have to save some for tomorrow's breakfast though. One of my new favorite things is pancakes with fresh pineapple and cool whip on top. Andy always makes fun of me because Cool-whip is such an artificial food with no real substance. But I just love the stuff. It's so girly and light. There is nothing like it. Besides, I am terrible at whipping cream. I can never get it right.
