I am soooooooooo jealous. I knew you guys would have fun. But did you have to have that much fun?!

What did you do to poor Anna, sat her on the chair as soon as you entered the store?

I can't wait to see what goodies you picked up, I guess I'll have to take a trip to the city before school starts. Today would have been the perfect day we had low 70 here, but nooooooooooo husband refused. His comment: "What do you need me there for? Oooooooooh I know, I have to carry bags." Our comments were: " Well, you're really good at it though"

Have a wonderful Sunday!!


Kristen said...

maybe if I get on my bike and start pedaling now I cen et there before the snow flies...I am drooling over the goodies I glimpsed in your photos...I need to find a knowledgable sort to take me to the fabric district in NYC!

Down the street from the fabric district is the toy district where you can entertain Anna for under 15.00 it seems everything in the toy district is 5.00- as your friend knows, if you let someone flirt with you- you may get a toy for 4.00.
In the alley of the toy district are the best street tacos you can eat. Delicious! They are served with cabbage and that yummy crumbly mexican cheese...
I hope to also take a field trip with you before school starts my friend!
