a visit with Nonny.

Before we packed up and left Anderson, my Mom was actually able to come down for a few days and spend some time with us. It was sort of an odd visit because we were in very odd limbo land (we had zero idea what our next step was at that point) and so we were in a lockdown of sorts; not going out much, no eating out, no spending money. You know, nothing fun.

So we had to make our own fun. With lots of park time and long walks and lots of play time with BG. And even a trip out to the Jockey Lot. Now that's cheap entertainment.
That dress isn't exactly park wear is it?

Also, umm.. loudest dress ever. My bff and I have very different styles (to say the least) and she thinks it's hilarious to buy these types of outfits for my child. I don't find it as funny. Also? every time she does it, it becomes BG's favorite outfit. She will pick this dress out every single day if you let her. I don't.

She had to take her bracelets off to get serious about play time.
Good gracious I heart my child.
My child adores her grandparents and visits with them are always so fun. I truly wish they lived closer so that BG could be around them more. Although the fact that they aren't makes us make the visits that much more special.

There aren't many words in this post, but there isn't much to say. It was such a low key visit. Nights were spent on the couch with a good tv show and cheap wine. Dinners were had at home. Baths were given by Nonny. It was a good, easy visit. The best kind.

We three girls did pack up one day and headed about thirty minutes away to the state park. Mr. P, BG, and I have been out there multiple times so I knew one more trip was for sure needed before we left.

The next time she comes to visit, we'll have a whole new town to show her around and make new memories in!

I had to laugh about your friends choice in outfit. I think I'm "that" friend to my BFF. Not so much because I pick loud, obnoxious things, but because I pick girly things and my friend is so NOT a girly girl. I'm sure a few of the outifts I've sent have gotten an eye roll or two!

What a coincidence - I also need to take off my bracelets to get serious about playing!

But seriously, those close-ups of Ella are just incredible. You're such a talented photographer!

PS - Your BFF may need to re-think the flamingos. Just sayin' :-).
