We traveled to Lawrence, Kansas this weekend to meet our three-month old niece, Kirana. To be fair, we also visited Nate’s mom and his brother Matthew and his wife Dhita. We spent much of the weekend looking at this sweet, precious baby.
Kirana just moved here with her mom and dad from Indonesia. She is three-months old and already a world traveler.
I tried not to be the annoying person who is in everyone’s face with a camera. It was hard. My strategy was to take pictures of babies, flowers, dogs and vegetables. Since Kirana was often sitting in her mother’s lap, I had to reassure Dhita that I was zooming in close to get sweet baby shots.
We took a pilgrimage to Whole Foods in Overland Park on Saturday. Nate’s big truck didn’t fit in the parking lot very well, but it was a fun adventure. We are big fans of Whole Foods. – we got some Justin’s Honey Almond Butter, some heirloom tomatoes and some fig jam.
We also ventured to Great Harvest Bakery. We love their breads. We came home with some of their white bread, a loaf of whole grain bread and some fantastic Spinach and Feta bread. Nate’s mom introduced us to their bread and it’s so good. She toasts it in a skillet with a little butter and it just melts in your mouth.
This is Sandy. She belongs to Nate’s mom. Sandy and I have a few things in common. We have unruly hair that needs constant grooming.
We are both really, really tall.
My mother-in-law’s backyard is truly amazing.
So are the vegetables she grows there.
Now, back to that baby …
