We spent the weekend up in Northern Michigan with our friends Joel and Sarah from Hope College. On Saturday morning we woke up, packed up the kids in their strollers/backpacks and walked downtown Boyne City to the farmers market.
Here are some pictures of Jamus and Ruby. Jamus is 9 months, Ruby is 13 months... but they're just about the same weight. Ruby is almost 19.5 pounds... almost. Jamus is a hoss. He is rambunctious. Ruby never seemed so dainty and girly as she did while she and Jamus played together.
Sarah (she's a really good cook) made a ridiculous meal with all the food from the farmers market. The difference between a carrot from the grocery and a carrot from a local farmer is incredible. Also incredible, the difference between Sarah cooking dinner and me trying to do so.
The next morning Ryan and I hiked up this mountain for the view of Lake Charlevoix. Ryan carried Ruby on his back the whole time. I reminded him of this yesterday when he asked me why his calves were so sore.
