Welcoming October

There is a universal fact about children...they grow. New seasons mean new clothes and shoes, so with a mission to remedy having "nothing to wear", we headed to the shopping center yesterday afternoon.

After several hours of selecting clothes for both Rose and Charlotte, we were tired and slightly hungry for a treat.

*Coldstone* was running an afternoon half- off special on their shakes and smoothies. Rose chose a Caramel Latte shake. I can see a coffee drinking girl in the future since this girl already has such a distinct taste for coffee flavored anything.


A Pineapple Coconut Orange smoothie....that's more my style.


Charlotte, my sprinklely kind of girl, ordered watermelon ice cream with colorful sprinkles, she must appreciate crunch with her ice cream. The wrought iron chairs sitting outside the ice cream store were pulled into the dazzling sunshine and we basked in a beautiful fall day. Until it was time to head back to the parking lot, to the car, and take Charlotte to her ballet lesson.

A very good way to welcome October. Oh, and I must not forget the fashion show of new apparel the girls gave their Daddy later in the evening...
