Great meeting you all! We looked at the "diamond" again when we got home and it really isn't one. I compared it to my mom's diamond under a microscope and it has pits and scratches on it and air bubbles in it. I looked on Craigslist and no one lost a diamond. Looked on Tucson Weekly too. I think it is glass. Erik said he'll take it to a jeweler, just to be sure, but it was probably from a kid's jewelery. Oh well...

Just wanted to say that I really enjoyed our get together on Saturday and look forward to next week!
Oh and, just because I'd like to get everything squared away beforehand to make sure it actually works out , is 10 am a good time for everyone? It seems like that's when people have shown up the last few times we've met.

We had a really great time too!

I am v. relieved about the diamond. I kept imagining all these sad circumstances regarding it

10 is fine.

We went to the Antique Fair today and a jewelry guy looked at it with his loupe and said it is cubic zirconia. Is that worth anything? My mom says $5 at best.

Lol at least someone didn't lose their diamond!

Either place is fine for us, they're both close by. The park might be nice since it's shaded and it's new to us. And either day is fine for us too, we're pretty open in the mornings. It would be fun to actually be organized enough to bring a picnic. :

Cool, we'll be there Thursday too then. Is it small enough that we'll find each other easily or do we need to meet somewhere?

Hey everybody--

I'm new to town and would love to get together with ya'll sometime soon! I miss my mom friends from DC, where we were living before. I think you're getting together again this Saturday? I can't make it then because we're having a bday party for my little one--he's turning 1, I can't believe it--but I hope to be able to make another playdate soon!

Sarah

Welcome, Sarah! Come meet us at the park! 10-ish seems to be the going time. The park is linked on one of Tallulahma's earlier posts, I believe.

Any of those options are fine with me. Whatever's easiest for you.

Also, this is extremely last minute, but I'm available tomorrow morning if anyone else wants to meet at the Splash Park again? 9ish? I'll check the postings tomorrow or tonight to see if anyone wants to. I know Jen you can't but if anyone needs to get out...

Sorry I didn't have time to post this morning before the splash park invitation. We had an important errand that we had forgotten about. I don't know how two people as spacey as us survive life together!
We are available anytime except Sunday or Monday next week (or at least we'd have to leave in time to open the store at 11) but we'll definitely be at the farmer's market tomorrow morning. Tuesday or Wednesday are nice midweek.
Those pictures are adorable! Thanks for posting them. hehe

I'd definitely be up for the Splash park on Monday, because it's near my dad's house and we're going there Monday afternoon to harvest prickly pear fruit and make jelly!

But I could also make it another day....

Will someone fill me in on the farmer's markets? where do you go on sundays?
