We decided to take Kaiya to the Hanapepe Farmer's Market to see if they had any produce we could use to make her baby food. However, when we got there, the market wasn't open yet. So we went into a bookstore called "Talk Story," which mommy has been wanting to go to for a while. It's an amazing book shop, they have vintage books, new books, used books, a huge children's section (for such a small store), a bunch of cookbooks, and basically it's a great find in Hanapepe. Daddy found two cookbooks and mommy found Kaiya a bunch of Berenstein Bear's books, which both her and daddy loved when they were little. Plus, we got a kama'aina discount. So we only paid $25, for books worth about $100! The owners, who were very nice, said that they buy books back for credit, and they take requests. Why not support the local business...eventhough we love Border's also. But they said that they buy about 300 books/week, so their stock is always changing. I'm sure we'll be back!
And back to the original reason we went to Hanapepe, the Farmer's Market. Well, there weren't any "yellow" vegetables. We were planning to make sweet potatoes for her first food, but they only had the purple variety. Luckily, Eleele Big Save carried the yellow variety. So we're on our way to pureeing Kaiya's first taste of sweet potatoes. Let's hope she likes it...cause she's kind of over the whole bland rice cereal deal.
