Grandma and Girlie day out

 Every year I try to take the girls out for a little shopping and fun before school starts. We did that again this year and had lots of fun!  Here's some pics of our day.

Here we are, all ready to go.

We usually try to get a pair of shoes for each of them, and maybe a shirt.  However, this year, the mall didn't have a very good supply of shoes.  And when we found a pair we liked, they were the wrong size.

I was looking for shirts and saw the girls goofing of in front of this mirror.  We did find some cute sweatshirts here.

We went to the food court to have lunch and ride the Merry go round.
And, we found out it no longer runs during the week, only Fri to Sun.

Thankfully, they had other rides available, so they did a few of those.

They also found this huge candy selection that they thought was pretty cool.  We didn't get anything though because we were about to have lunch.

Here they are, enjoying a burger.

After lunch, Ruby said we needed to ride the escalator because "it's fun!"

So, we rode it down,

Then we took the glass elevator back up.  They were jumping up and down while looking out the glass panels.

We did find a cute little Stuffy - in their words, for them to take home.

We went to another store to look for shoes.

We had success!  Alaina found these cute boots she was so excited about.  I asked her what her Dad would say about them, and she said "He'll say I look beautiful!"

And we found some cute little black boots for Ruby that she liked because they have little zippers on the side.

It was a hot day and they reminded me that last year we got ice cream when we went out.

This year I took them to a frozen yogurt place.  They thought it was the best because they got to choose things to go in it.  I had to keep them from filling it with all sorts of candy!

Mine is the plain looking cup with heath bits on top.  They had gummy sharks, sprinkles, worms...   :)

Here's Alaina with her gummy shark.

They both enjoyed it, and have asked to go back.

Then it was time to go home and show Mom our finds.

 A sweatshirt for each of them.

And some cute boots!
Along with memories of a fun day together!

Looks like so much fun! I adore their boots and sweatshirts. Such a sweet pic of the three of you together. I remember fun trips like this with my nieces before school each fall. Have a blessed day.❤️

Just perfect photos of a wonderful day together. What a lovely and fun tradition. And what smiles and joy you have given them! The boots are adorable! I think you should make a photo album of one or more of these photos for each year, and it will show how they have changed each year as well.

Susan said...

How fun for you and your grand daughters! Looks like you had a great time!

Anni said...

Love, love their choice of boots. So chic.
And yes, both girls, I agree...are beautiful!!

That first photo of the three of you should be framed & on your desk at work.

What a fun can tell from the clothing they chose that they are growing up into big girls.:) But their yogurt toppings show they are still your little girlies.

What a fun day with your cute granddaughters. Enjoy the rest of the week!

Y'all go to the coolest places. Actually, I like the flip flops, but I'm a Florida girl. Even here in SE Georgia we practically live in those things. *lol*
Blessings. xx

Awesome! What a fun time, I am sure. I hope you have a beautiful day, Mari. Smiles

Wonderful shopping finds, although it hurts my heart to think of how soon they will need warm sweatshirts and boots! Ugh! Summer don't go! Y'all sure know where to find all the delectable treats! xoxo

Henny Penny said...

What a great grandma you are, and what fun, sweet granddaughters you have. Could I go along some time?? :) Love the little boots and the sweatshirts.

Kim said...

You are always doing super fun stuff with those girls! Can you adopt me for a weekend? Haha!!

Sorry I'm so late this week. You're the bested Gram around with the cutest granddaughters - the end. Lol 😊

Lovely photo of you and the girls.
I always enjoy the posts about your fun visits. They are very blessed to have such a cool Grandma.
The boots are very cute.
We have a frozen yogurt place around here that also lets you choose from a large variety of toppings. It's a chain called Sweet Frog, but I don't guess they're at your mall too?.
