A Wonderful Weekend

I had the best Labor Day weekend!
Jess came to visit, and I got to see Francesca.  When her and Brian got here, I greeted them with crackers of roasted chicken, pepper jack cheese and pickles, chips, peaches, and homemade potato salad.
 
 
Remember the doll I got for Francesca?  She loved it!  She wouldn't put it down.  This is her cabinet filled with goodies, and I want to eventually get Mia the same cabinet of her own.
 
 
Watched a little Sesame Street.
I used to watch this all the time when my kids were young, so it gave me so much pleasure watching it with my grandbaby.
 
 
Did some shopping.
  Jess found a cute dish towel with macacons on it for when she makes her scrumptious macarons.  
 
 

 
Favorite shop
 
 
 
A paper store with lots of ideas for creating.
 
 
 
Time to rest and see the sights.
 
 
 
 
 
Went to Jack's Urban Eats for a bite to eat.  I forgot how BIG and delicious their salads are.  We shared a salad and some garlic fries.
 
 
Speaking of shopping....
Jess went to this cute boutique awhile back, and I really want to check it out.  ; )
 
 
Bye Grandma, see you soon!

What a sweet little doll Francesca is, Sheri! I see the resemblance of you and her. Such a happy post full of family memories. The darling butterfly bench would beckon me to rest and the lovely meal you shared with Jess makes for a perfect outing. At our mall we have a Francesca's as well. I think of your sweet granddaughter when we pass by. ♥

It is always wonderful to get a grandma's visit and how nice that you have a cabinet for her - my mom used to do the same for my kids. The store Sur La Table looks interesting - I wonder if we have one her. sandie

That was a wonderful time with your daughter and granddaughter! Francesca has the cutest smile. She looks like she is a happy baby!

Pam Jackson said...

She is such a DOLL! Love that beautiful little smile. Looks like you all had such a great visit. Talking about watching tv with the babe like you did with the girls...I loved introducing my kids to the Wizard of Oz for the first time. From there I went on to introduce my nieces and nephews and a few yrs ago my great nephew was watching it with his dad (who I introduced it too) and they had to call me to tell me the tradition is being handed down. I love it. Thanks for sharing your sweet little one with us...adorable.

Sweet as can be, dearest Sheri! As you describe your outing, I wish I could be at this stage of life, simply retired and enjoying things at a slower pace. Your little grand is precious and I know you are enjoying her with all your heart. PEACE and love to all!

Francesca looks so cute and adorable
and seems like a very happy baby ♥
All your pics look amazing
and I especially love looking at those pics
from anthropologie and Sur la Table.
Ahhh... Sesame Street...I would love to watch it
with my future grandkids too (I hope a really far future from now),
its seems like a thing we could share with them
with fondness and something to bond
with them :)
Thanks for sharing this weekend ♥
