Yesterday Cory and I spent the day roaming around Northern Virginia so I could cover two different events for a small, local newspaper. It was a perfect, perfect fall day and I was so thankful to be spending it with my husband.
Our first stop was a local Farmer’s Market. I love Farmer’s Market’s. I love the fresh food, the friendly vendors, the fact that you can be outside and shop for food, the samples – everything!
I grabbed up some delicious Honey Crisp apples, and Cory snagged a Whoopie Pie from Cornerstone Baked Goods.
I told Cory that I love him because he’s a “good eater.” He said “You mean you always buy and eat healthy food and you like that I always eat bad, unhealthy food that you can take bites of.”
Yes. You are right, sir.
The next location was Wilson’s Wild Animal Park in a rural part of Northern, Va – about an hour north of the city. I was expecting to see goats and chickens, which we did, but I was shocked when we saw camels, lions, emu, black bears, bison and so much more!
Me: Oh my God, Cory! He looks just like Shrek’s friend!
Cory: Yeah. He was a donkey.
And while I was working, how could I pass up on some pumpkins? You’re right. I couldn’t.
Nevermind the fact that we were the only ones there without children, let alone the only ones there without children who were taking pictures in the pumpkin patch.
Whatever. We do what we want
How did you spend your Saturday?
