Friday I took off work to spend the day with Gran and Riley. We decided to have a girls' day out of shopping (of course, because shopping is my addiction). We went to have lunch at Zoe's in Homewood and then walked around to all the little shops there. It was a very successful day with both Mommy and Riley getting some new things. Riley loved seeing all of the people and everyone was commenting on how cute and good she was. She finally tired of all the shopping and fell sound asleep while we continued on. We stopped by Savage's bakery for a little treat. Yummy! A few minutes after that, I glanced at Riley and noticed some crumbs on her face. Yep, you guessed it! Gran gave her a bite of cookie. That's what "Grans" are for, though, right? What a great day with 2 of my very favorite people!! Here are a few pics from our little outing. (Excuse the quality as they were taken with my cell phone.)
And a few of her in one of her new outfits. How cute!!!
Sadly, Gran went back home yesterday. (I always shed a few tears when she leaves.) Hopefully, she'll be back very soon for another visit. It is so hard living away from my hometown now that we have Riley. Gran and Pop have always been such wonderful grandparents and I hate that they don't get to see Riley more. I really miss my family and friends "back home", but I am thankful that it is just up the road in North Alabama. We miss you already Gran!
