Due to conflicting schedules, we couldn’t arrange Madeline’s birthday picnic party on a day that our cousin Emily could be there. So, later today we picked Emily up for an afternoon on the town, GIRL STYLE!
Step 1: Pop in Gigi’s for decadent, oversized cupcakes.
Step 2: Head over to Bath and Body Works to stock up on delicious fragrances for the upcoming holidays. Start using them as soon as you get back in the van….except for the candle which Mom will light the very second you get home later (sorry, B&BW was too crowded to stop for a photo in store).
Step 3: Stop by the pet store to love on some adorable puppies, complete with lots of “Awwww’s”.
Step 4: Finish up with a few miscellaneous errands for Mom, which girls never mind because they just enjoy being together. Be sure and pick up a treat for little brother even though he was ecstatic about his “guy’s day” with Daddy.
Step 5: Hold these memories in your heart because you’re growing up so fast!
