Our Weekend......Saturday Morning Farmers Market, Lunch at Ruby Tuesdays and A Quiet Sunday Ride with Mr Hedley

Saturday Morning we visited the Farmers Market in Down Town Dothan, Alabama!!  This is held every Saturday in the summer months in the parking lot of the Civic Center and is sponsored by the Down Town Group.  This was our first visit and well worth it!!  There was a flurry of activity.  Plenty to see, lots or folks to visit with and array of wonderful Fresh Vegetables, Fruits, Flowers and Honey!!
One of my favorite stops....Fresh Blueberry Lemonade....So good on a hot day!  Made fresh as your order!
Thomas is making a very silly face....I am not sure if he or the sweet lady making the wonderful drink wanted their picture taken.

There was so much to choose from...we bought some here...some there and took lots of wonderful goodies home. 

We have had yummy Slocomb Tomatoe Sandwiches, Cold Watermelon and tonight we are having some of these peas...I can't wait. 

If you haven't been...go!  And lets all support our Farmers!

But that is not all I found at the Market....

Beautiful Baskets...being made as we watched.

A Family Business

Organic Milk

Hand Made Pottery...and she offers classes

Lynn Koning is now teaching the Pottery Wheel Classes

Beautiful Pieces and Very Reasonably Priced!

Mildred's is a staple in Dothan...her tea room is known far and wide.

This is all sponsored by the Down Town Group...Pictured here are the Volunteers from the First Baptist Church in Dothan.

This is a great outing for the entire family...Make sure to wear sunscreen....and plan on staying a while!!

We left there and headed over to Ruby Tuesdays for lunch.  It is always good, and the air conditioning feels so good after being outside.  I ran into some of my friends from the volunteer group there too, taking advantage of the wonderful salad bar...

Amy will open the door with a warm smile
Cricket is the bartender on Saturdays and makes a wonderful Peach Tea....
Lots of friendly servers will take care of you 
And...this handsome man just happens to be my oldest son John...

This is my first mother's day without my mom and the entire week has been very difficult.Then today I went out to pick up a couple of mother's day cards and the water works turned on pretty quickly.I give this card to other people who looks like my mother and i will get their blessing.
