We arrived early, parked our cars and unloaded our nine kids. We got many, many looks and had several people comment that "we had our hands full"...but as she always says, "hands full heart fuller" and I totally concur! We decided to bring strollers to help carry the food we were looking forward to purchasing in the market, the beach towels, the picnic lunches as well as all the other necessities; we looked a bit like pack mules, but that's ok.
The River Market wasn't huge but there were several booths to buy from and Ava Jane helped me pick out some squash, zucchini, cucumbers and blueberries.
We were all thrilled when the yellow trolley made its way to our stop.
The view from the street car was pretty, it really was such a lovely day to be outside. The kids enjoyed seeing the bridge and being up high in the air over the water. Us Momma's were just thrilled to be sitting in the air-conditioning.
We did have fun with our kids, but let there be no mistake, it.was.super-de-duper.hot!
