We had a really busy day today. We started off with a Tiny Tots puppet performance at Glen Echo Park. I think Baby Z was still a little too young to appreciate the show, although there were plenty of other infants, including a baby boy next to us who was born during the same week at the same hospital. We then went on to the exurb of Laurel, to stock up at Manila Asian Foods, where I passed on the diniguan and the balut. The Filipino store was in the same shopping center as the Dutch Country Farmers Market, so we took a look. It was packed, and we waited in line for half an hour for the restaurant, where MoBob had a crabcake sandwich and I had an indifferent plate of creamed beef on toast. I did score with a lot of baked goods, including a whoopie pie. Then we went to a "real" grocery store.
We hung out at home (i.e. both of us took turns looking after Baby Z while doing other stuff) until the missionary couple came. They were sweet and brought prints of different depictions of the Tree of Life from Lehi's dream. They wanted to know our life stories and were very curious about MoBob's background.
I've been to the sister store of the Dutch Country Farmers Market, in Upper Marlboro (I believe they're owned by the same people), and I love the place. Luckily it's far enough that I don't get out there often because their baked goods are ridiculously delicious. (Best pies ever. Amazing pumpkin rolls. Perfect sour cream donuts.) Also, I have a thing for their pretzels. Mmmmm....
