my 52Photos capture

Sitting together discussing our day's activities with one another last night, Gordon said he was glad that the girls and I were doing so many activities together this Summer. We had planned an out-of-town vacation, but kind of forgot that we were going to have a new puppy {Scout} so then cancelled the vacation. We've made an effort to do around town activities that one always visits if they're a tourist, but not necessarily if they are close to home. 

Yesterday we went to the Zoo where Isabella held a tarantula. Eeek. It was HUGE! The goats had a chat with Victoria. The girls obliged me with a photo. And we waited for the pretty bird to stop grooming himself so we could try to get a photo. We also did a little shopping at the nearby outlet mall that included a few new clothing items and tennis shoes to get Isabella ready for school.  Both girls got a casual pair of shoes and Victoria scored with two pairs of house shoes that were 70% off. I'm BIG on them wearing horseshoes, I guess because we have hardwood floors. Lunch and dinner out and a before-dinner milkshake were highlights. And our time together. I had a glimpse into what the years ahead will hold for this Mommy and her two {little}girls. Conversations. Opinions. Shopping. Laughter. Good, good times.

"It's all the little things they'll remember," my sweet husband said. 

DISCLAIMER | Okay, I must admit that Mommy made a quick stop in at the Coach store as well. 50% off and then another 30% on top of that. Two Christmas gifts purchased and one little sumpin' sumpin' for me! 

next week's theme

Can you believe that Christmas is just five months away...as of yesterday?


  1. Well my friend...that is what I was saying over on fb...except that it is actually 5 months away...and boy was I getting alot of grief.
