Girls Day Out

Mary Ashley and I enjoyed a special girls day out today, and it was packed with memorable outings. It is such a treat to spend one-on-one time with one of the children, so we enjoyed our time to the fullest. First we attended Mary Ashley's preschool field trip to the Montgomery Museum of Fine Art. We had a lovely time exploring the grounds of the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. After feeding the ducks and attending a puppet show at the museum, Mary Ashley and I visited some favorite spots in Montgomery. We had some time for treasure hunting at one of my favorite shops before we joined friends for tea. Then we picked up fresh flowers from a local market and browsed a favorite fabric store before picking up the boys from school and reuniting with the rest of the family at home. Along with a sweet little girl, I brought home pretty pink tulips, vivid green plates and a delicate white teapot. We concluded our perfect day by going out to dinner with the family before heading to church together. What a lovely, happy day!

Ready for some girl time.

These two became fast friends at the beginning of the school year. Raney's family heard a lot about "Mish-Ashey," and we have heard a lot about Raney too.

Girls just want to have fun!

she looks like you! I have always, always treasured my 'girly time' with Jenny. And we still make time for just the two of us~

Hello, I've just discovered your blog and love it! Your children are beautiful, the photography first rate and your writing style makes me feel as though I am right there in the moment with you. Your entire blog has the flavor of a gentler time when we focused on the simple things and still had the social graces of the "olden days". Perhaps life is still somewhat like that in the South but definitely not here in California where I live. Thanks for sharing your beautiful blog. I've bookmarked it now to read at tea time.
