Friends & Family

All around town

I love Saturdays. At least the ones where we have the time and inclination to get out and about and take advantage of what our city has to offer.

Yesterday we did. We breakfasted at Brandywine in Eastown and then headed over to the tres-crowded Fulton Farmer’s Market for some fresh strawberries.

When we got home, I had an email from Kara asking if we wanted to meet up at the Eastown Bizarre Bazaar. Heck, yeah! We’ve been Flickr pals for months, but we’ve never managed to get together in person. So this was our chance! We met up with the entire family and watched Devin and the girls zoom around crazily while Karisa Wilson played an excellent set. It was HOT, but we had some shade and some slushies. Kara is so sweet. Her whole family is. I’m so glad we made this work and I can’t wait to do it again.

Afterward, despite the zooming about, or maybe in spite of it, Devin refused to nap. So we went with our original plan and drove our little posse out to Muskegon to enjoy our first dog-beach outing of the year. The dog was happy. The boy was happy. I think the dad was happy too. And I always get a kick out of our visits. We even reconnected with an old dog-park friend. Although our car is now full of sand.

Check out the Bizarre Bazaar pics.
Kara posted some too.

As for the beach, this one’s my fave. Happy Father’s Day to you, Scott!
