A fun weekend

On Good Friday we hopped in my in-laws RV and drove over to Boca Raton to visit family. Once we arrived, we headed to this amazing place in Delray Beach called "The Boys Farmers Market" (this is a must stop every time we head to the east coast). The have an amazing selection of cheeses (with samples everywhere), delectable desserts at the bakery (picture a New York bakery selection!!), fruits and veggies everywhere (with someone walking around cutting different fruits up and allowing you to sample them), then they have a fish counter, meat counter and deli counter... Part of the atmosphere of The Boys you have to fight crowds, the aisles are narrow, the parking sucks, so when you make it inside...put on your racing helmets, hold on to your cart for dear life and have FUN! A few months ago they opened "The Girls" a half a block down the street. You walk into this store front that looks like an old county store stocked to the ceiling with jams, jellies, candy.... then you walk out the back door and OMG is all I can say! Acres upon acres of hydroponically grown fruits and veggies. You can either pick your own or walk to the back where they have a pre picked waiting for you to buy. It is fun for the whole family, they have petting animals, birds... We arrived back at my sister-in-laws house just in time for dinner, baths and bedtime.
The following day we woke up early and went to the zoo. It's was so much fun. The kids led the way down the paths to the various animals and sites...they loved it. We had a nice lunch then finished up the rest in an hour or so...the perfect amount of time for the kids. We drove back home for naptime. Once they woke up, we dyed easter eggs! They both got bored after about 5 eggs each so I ended up dying the rest with Mariann and Pat. LOL
Easter morning was so much fun watching the kids hunt for their easter baskets inside and then looking outside and seeing all the eggs the easter bunny left for them! What a great weekend!! We all had a blast.
