Mother-Daughter Time!

Elizabeth just had a 4 day weekend (2 extra days off of school!), and we spent some great time together.  Much needed for the both of us!  It’s amazing how time flies.  She’ll be 7 next month!  She’s at that fabulous age of joy, big girl conversation, and laughter.  We had a great time making memories…

After dropping Daniel off at MDO, we ran a few errands and then headed for lunch at All Aboard.  (Yes, Granddaddy knows we ate there and not at Arkansas Burger Company!)  And of course, I’ll be posting about Daddy’s restaurant soon!!!

It’s a clever concept and enjoyable for the kiddos!  A train, shown above, delivers your meal to your table.

Here it comes…

Almost here…

And it has arrived!

I enjoyed their veggie wrap with carrot sticks!

And Elizabeth liked the chicken fingers and fries!

After lunch, we headed to The Painted Pig, a paint-your-own ceramics shop.  She chose this star ornament and lots of pretty colors!

Let the fun begin…

So proud of my artist!  She completed her star all by herself!

Later that evening, she attended a garden club meeting with me.  She enjoyed some hot chocolate thanks to our wonderful hostess, Phoebe.  And since this is my church’s garden club, she knew everyone too!

Our wonderful speaker, Tatiana, gave a delightful presentation on container gardening.

The variety of textures and color were great!

This fall basket was created using items from her yard!  And the gorgeous dried hydrangea is spray painted!  Can’t wait to try this new technique!

Our speaker with her lovely creation!  And she was so kind to give our hostess both arrangements!

After falling asleep at the garden club meeting (thank you Janet for holding her!), she was inspired to help me plant some “wave pansies.”  This variety crawls and trails!

She’s the best helper!

We shall see how they do!

After spending Friday night at my parent’s cabin, we drove in for Maddie’s 7th birthday party (Maddie’s in the middle with Elizabeth and her sister, Sadie)!  The girls enjoyed breakfast and then headed to Build-A-Bear!  It was a great party!

Fun times!

Maddie’s unwrapping Elizabeth’s gift.  Elizabeth usually creates her own wrapping paper (something I did as a child too)!

Thank you Sweet Pea…we had the best time!!!

Enjoy the day!
