Today I met Connie and Chelsea (my Mother-in-law and Sister-in-law) at Gardner Village for lunch, shopping and enjoying the sunshine. Sounds perfect, right? It was. So glad that I have in-laws that I actually like hanging out with. And of course James adores is Granny and Auntie.
The restaurant at Gardner Village is especially fun because it is in an old 1800s flour mill converted into shop and restaurant. Today we sat inside the old silo and ate super yummy things, including the traditional fried avocado appetizer.
Then we walked around the shops which is quite fun because it is a collection of old pioneer buildings converted into quite a few neat stores (doll shop and candy store anyone?).
James had a grand old time walking in muddy gardens to visit the trees and along the brick pathways, all the while on the lookout for birds and airplanes. And it was so warm and spring like. I just need to remember it won't last.
Is that a bird? A plane? He's so cute, even when he squints.
Candy shop yums. James went right for the good stuff and removed candy from the barrels as fast as he could.
And this one just kills me. Doesn't it look like he's posing for an eyelash ad or something?
