Saturday marked the kick-off of the neighborhood flea market season in Munich, one of my all time favorite parts of the summer. After a leisurely breakfast of coffee and muffins, we spent the entire day wandering through Haidhausen and snapping up deal after deal.
We bought an infant bike seat, a hiking pack, a whole bunch of toys and shoes for charlie, a couple of records, shoes for me... and we also snapped up a bunch of free things like a crawling tunnel for C. And the weather, which was predicted to be cold and rainy, turned out to be beautiful, so we spent our free time between markets lounging in the neighborhood's many roundels and plazas. Beautiful.
We ended our adventure at the Biergarten/Beer Hall Hofbräukeller, which amazingly has a HUGE indoor play area for kids. We will definitely be going back.
Sunday was more leisurely but we did manage to get out of the house to go to the playground. C takes his Kid O car with him wherever he goes.
What a fantastic weekend! And next week... vacation!!!
I love to craft and knit, but boy am I horrible at finishing up projects. Which is why I am so proud to present this sweater, which I just finished yesterday, which is the from the Purl Soho book "Last Minute Knitted Gifts".
The buttons have his initials!
After spending Sunday at the infamous "Fabric Market Holland" I am armed and ready to tackle even more crafty projects. Let's hope I can keep the momentum going.
Yesterday was a spectactularly beautiful day, and since today is a bit gloomy and rainy and it looks like it will stay that way through the weekend, I wanted to post some pictures to remind myself that spring really is right around the corner (really! really!).
We went to two different playgrounds. Needless to say, C was exhausted, but it was a wonderful time. And he discovered the joy of wiggling his bare feet in the air.
