Â We started our weekend on Saturday morning with a long trip to the Fishers Farmers Market. Â While here, I chased after our two year old son, Christopher, as my husband loaded up on fresh fruits, veggies, flowers (oh yeah, I happened upon some yummy local chocolate/peanut butter fudge created by Boyd's Fudge, an Indiana Artisan). My little guy loved the market - he patted dogs, smelled flowers, and danced to the live music -so it was a perfect morning for him. Once he finished his nap, we hopped in the car and headed to the Simply Sweet Shoppe in Carmel - this was a first time visit for both my husband and son, so I was excited to show them around. Â Christopher marveled at the colorful candy filled jars as my husband spent time picking out the perfect treat for himself. Â I personally left with a few turtles, a chocolate cheesecake ball, and a peanut butter filled something that was really good. Â After checking out each shelf, display, row and container - we happily left with our purchases. Â From here, we spent a little time walking around the Carmel Arts & Design District, just window shopping and chatting. Â We were steps away from a good, long walk on the Monon Trail - but the desire to gobble up our candy got the best of us. We spent Sunday splashing around at the Billericay Splash Park in Fishers. Â One great thing about Hamilton County is the little pocket parks that are everywhere - many of which offer free water areas. Â Armed with drinks and snacks, Chris was able to spend the day splishing and splashing with other children. Â I loved watching him laugh and smile as he ran around in the water (just a warning, the water was REALLY cold at first, it took a moment to get used to). Â It was the perfect way to end the perfect weekend! For more information on Hamilton County, Indiana fun family getaways visit us online at 8GreatTowns.com.
