Trader Joe's and Asher

So a couple weeks ago, Nate decided that he wanted to go to Trader Joe's in Union Square. So we decided to all go. What we at first thought would be a quick trip to Trader Joe's, ended up being an outing that took almost half the day. It was a little ridiculous, but we still had a good time. We walked through the open-air market there, and Asher got to see bees working in their little beehive, making honey. I spotted a Taco Bell, and decided that we had to eat lunch there. I haven't seen one since we moved out here, and I love me some Taco Bell. I think that was the funnest part. I mean, how could this not make you smile...
I can't get over how cute and little he looks, with his little legs dangling off the chair


YUM!!

As I said before, Asher has a special gift for making friends. Well, he won over the truck driver at the construction site a block away from our house... he let him sit in the driver's seat and pull the cord for the horn. He loved it of course.
While waiting for the subway on the way down to Union Square, Asher was enthralled with this guy playing the... can't remember what it's called. Nate will tell me after he reads this post. So he let him sit on his lap and help him play. So sweet.

Then when we got to the open air market, he found this guy and won him over as well.  He's got a gift I tell you.  At church 2 weeks ago, a guy in our ward came up to me and said "Asher really is not shy at all, is he?"  Um, no.  He asked if there was something special that I did to help him be like that.  I wish I could take credit for it, but this boy just loves life.  There are definitely times that I wish I could turn it off for a little while, because man, is it tiring.  But Nate and I both really love that he is so passionate and happy, and loves to see and touch things, and learn things, and meet people.  He really is the sweetest little guy, once you see past his crazy energy.  I wouldn't change him for the world, and I hope he always has the same zest for life as he does now!!

Is that a gutbucket in the last picture? It's so fancy. Did it sound good? Now I have to have Taco Bell.

morgan. i consider it an offense to eat at chain fast food restaurants (i.e. taco bell) in nyc. especially when yummy things like city bakery, stand, etc. are right there. consider this your warning.

That is so awesome that he's not afraid! Olivia is very shy around people she doesn't know. What a fun day!
