Spring showers are alive and well here in Knoxville. It rained the entire weekend. By the looks of the forecast, it appears that we still have 2 more days of rain coming. I know that my garden is loving this rain, but I’m ready for a break!
In spite of the rain, we started our weekend off by attending First Friday in downtown Knoxville. We met friends for dinner and then just walked around enjoying the art. This was our first, First Friday. We did not buy any art, but it was certainly fun window shopping.
We began Saturday with our usual pancake breakfast (gluten free bisquick mix), and then we ventured out to Stanley’s nursery for some plants. We came home with sword ferns for our front door planters and a few new guinea impatiens for our back yard planters. We didn’t have room for anything else, so we’ll definitely be back to Stanley’s very soon. We wrapped up the day at swim lessons for Ruby Kate and then dinner at Tomato Head.
We ended up at Gourmet’s Market on Sunday for brunch. We go there every Sunday. After sampling all of the Sunday Brunch venues in town, we have decided Gourmet’s market has the best food. Hands down. About once every three months, they have a special called, white chocolate blueberry pancakes. Oh. My. I live for those days :).
We took a family trip to Publix Sunday night. It sounds silly, but family trips to the grocery store are some of my favorite times together as a family. It’s something we don’t do often, and we all have so much fun.
I didn’t take as many pics as I meant to, but here are a few.
