Friday was a busy day. This post will be about the morning. The first thing we did was go visit Grandma Ruth. I don't think our family visits her unless TJ or I are out there and take them, but his one brother is wanting to make an effort to go more often :) Luckily Grandma has great neighbors who visit and help her out. I am going to try to send cards and notes monthly as well so she knows TJ and I are thinking of her. If I lived out there I would be visiting, believe me.
Grandma gave the kids pictures of themselves in 1994. Here is TJ at 11 years old.
I also accepted a couple of pictures of TJ's dad as a baby. She was saying she had a bunch of pictures she was wanting to give away before she dies. I told her I like to have pictures for TJ since we don't have many.
After went to Build A Bear. On the way we saw this fireworks stand all set up
Also, this awesome lady was sitting on the corner with signs just waving at people
At the store I picked out a cat, which I have been wanting FOREVER
While stuffing her the lady kept talking and asking me about my vacation
This one took forever to find an outfit for. I wanted a flowery sundress, but could not find anything. We almost went with a very fancy formal dress(which I have also always wanted to do) or even a Cinderella dress, but finally we decided to go with a Rays outfit to match the Bucs dog TJ made last year.
I named her Flori Da Cat. Get it?
I call her Florie, though.
Our nephew made a bear named Chopper.
As we were leaving I asked TJ to dump her back in the bag so he did
