Is it fun???

The other day a woman asked me if my kids love coming to the market with me. I'll admit it, I giggled. Every market day I hear "Ooohhhh, do we HAVE to go? Can't we just stay HERE? Isn't Grandma available to take care of us??? PLEASE???" But this lady made me smile, when she said "We used to do the Rockford Farmer's Market, and my kids both REALLY miss it". Hmmm... there is hope yet. ;) Haley loves to try to help with the selling, and setting up. Davis just likes the money when it comes in, lol. For the most part, they play in the field (at the one market) or behind the tables (at the other market). They really are so good about it all. Suddenly I found myself wondering if they would look back and love the experience, or look back and wonder how their mother could have made them do that week after week all summer long, lol. Looking back, I remember going to craft shows with my mom and her best friend. My sister and I would play in the surrounding areas, and sit at the booth, watching the people. They are all good memories. Even the early morning rides out to the shows. So I was already smiling... then looked at my kids and saw this...


I'd say they are having a pretty good time wouldn't you?

Then later they got to paint t-shirts. Torture, I tell you, just torture.





I asked Davis to give me a smile... and he gave me this....

Okay that's better.


And Haley with her ever tousled hair. :) For those of you who know her, you are probably thinking, seriously Karin, a WHITE SHIRT? But let me tell you that Gamma bought this one... and yes, Haley did end up getting paint all over it, lol. Yup, we'll be tie dying it later. ;)
