We arrived this afternoon. It is wonderful to see Roy and Meagan. We visited and then decided to get in the car and head out for supper and to do some shopping. Of course the first place Meagan had to take us is to "The Disney Store". It is in a shopping center and we decided to first go eat supper at "The Ram Pub". Bob and I had not eaten lunch so we were hungry and the food was great and necessary for us to have the strength to go shopping with a 5 year old.
After our supper, we went directly to the mall for our power shopping. You could just walk out of the restaurant and walk to the mall entrance. Meagan finished her milkshake on the way and she turned around with Grandpa Bob to make sure I was coming. Grandma is always a softy when it comes to shopping. The last time we were coming, Meagan told her Mom, "You know, Grandma Carol buys me whatever I want. What's up with that?" Who knows.
Right before we went in the door there was a small planter filled with pansies and they were the most gorgeous color so I had to stop and snap a picture of them because they didn't even look real. That was almost too much waiting for Meagan because "The Disney Store" was calling our names. After we bought our "pick three things" we then headed to Macy's so we could find a new shirt to put some crystals on. Meagan has on her shirt tonight that we put crystals on last year. I am amazed at how well the crystals have stayed on through many, many washings. Of course, we bought 2 shirts, a cute skirt and some jammies on sale.
Before leaving the mall, we always have to stop at the wishing well pond in front of Macy's to make our wishes and through in some pennies. Most of our wishes come true, but one of the pennies Meagan decided to save because it was going to be her special penny. It is so much fun to see her.
As we left the mall, it was raining and Meagan loved the rain. She tried to catch the rain drops on her tongue and then she just cuddled up and giggled. With that giggle came a smile that clearly showed the loss of her first tooth from last week. She is getting so grown up. What ever happened to my "baby girl" from just yesterday?
"Where are you going my little one, little one
Where are you going my baby, my own
Turn around and you're two
Turn around and you're four
Turn around and you're a young girl
Going out of the door"
