On Sunday we met two of Scarlet’s six grandparents at the Coventry Farmer’s Market in Connecticut. It’s definitely the best farmer’s market I’ve been to on the east coast. I can’t say it’s the best one that I’ve ever been to because there are a few in Northern California that could bring me to my knees just thinking about.
Anyway we ended our outing at Worchester Pizza in Storrs, CT. This college town pizzeria made it into the top 100 pizzerias in America and after ten years of applying to be in the Connecticut building of the Big E, they finally made it and will be there next month! New Englanders know what the Big E. For everyone else, I’m just too tired to explain. Let’s just say I suffered a metal slide burn there last year.
So this is a picture post, detailing the funny faces Scarlet was making all day. And she wasn’t just doing it for the camera. She was grimacing, squinting and staring into space all day. It was just that kind of day. In fact, when Amma Peggy took her into a drum circle and gave her an instrument to play with, I could see her squinting and glaring face from across the field.
She had a giant bandage on her face all day too. This wasn’t because she needed one to stop bleeding or that her wound is still open – this is strictly to block the sun from her face at all costs. This is something we’ll have to do for the next year so that she heals fully.
And now I present to you my glaring, squinting, confused, unsure, maybe gassy toddler:
(At least Grandpa and Amma look good here)
Is she saying “L” for loser or “L” for Grandpa Larry??

Now these next two photos are more like it:
Thank god for picture posts. Writing in this blog post was like pulling teeth. I’ll get it together soon.
