We have heard great things about the Farmer's Market at Cibolo Nature Center
in Boerne, so while we were in town, we decided to go check it out. 

It's held every Saturday…March thru October (8:30AM-12:30PM)…
for more information--you can find their Facebook page here.

The weather was perfect on the day we went…not as hot as it had been--
so we enjoyed walking around and tasting all sorts of yummy fruits and 
vegetables.

We loved this chicken coop…
The hubby spoke with one of the farmers while we were there
and snagged the name and contact info. for the man in town who makes them.
Having chickens is definitely on our bucket list of things to do once we're living
in the country again.

The little ones tried them out for the first time...Tay-tay looked it over
thoroughly before putting it in her mouth. :-)

Tay-tay ate a few, but Gavin--oh my--he LOVED them.
He literally almost ate the entire basket of blackberries himself.
We were cracking up!!

Noah really enjoyed talking with all the farmers and
asking questions about how they grow the fruits and veggies.
We were so proud of him---he really has a curious and inquisitive mind.
And he never meets a stranger--loves to talk to people (just like his Daddy!!)

She is such a little cuddle buddy...the boys have never been into giving lots of  hugs
and cuddling--so I'm so enjoying baby girl and all the hugs she likes to give.

One happy little dude when I snapped this picture....
he had a full tummy of blackberries and was feeling pretty proud of himself. :-)


 After we left the Farmer's Market and before going to grab lunch, 
we took the kids back to the downtown river area and let them feed the ducks again.

There were so many more ducks this time than last time…
I think because it was a bit overcast and not as hot like it was last time we were there.

The kids were in heaven. And well...the ducks, too!
They have to be some of the best fed ducks ever.

Tay-tay wasted no time...
she jumped right in and started chasing them almost immediately.

Gavin...being the more reserved child that he is--
he kept a healthy distance from the ducks 
and stayed close to either mama or daddy most of the time.

Like I said... the ducks were everywhere....

A great day at the Farmers Market in Boerne... 
I look forward to when we are living up this way full-time and can go 
to the Market as a family on a regular basis.

Happy Friday everyone...have a blessed weekend!
