Snapshots....Girls weekend in the city

I thought I would share a little a lot of our girls weekend today.  Every year when the boys go snowmobiling we have a girls weekend.  This year we gave up the water park (YEAH!!!!) and headed into the city.  My aunt was a gracious host and we all had a really good time.  All of these shot were taken with my phone or my new point and shoot, yup, I got a point and shoot a Nikon Cool Pix 520.  This shot below was our view for our stay...beautiful!

Before we headed out we had a light lunch and the girls played.  The girls packed their own bag complete with toys...did I mention the school carnival was earlier in the morning so they also had a huge bag of goodies they won at school.  One of their favorite things to do is play with my aunt's charm collection from when she was little, always a big hit and always all over the floor!

Finally we decided to venture out into the snow.  The girls had their first cab ride.  The snow was so pretty, big, fluffy flakes.

Our first stop was (you guessed it) American Girl!  The girls shopped and picked out outfits and shopped some more.  This was our first visit and we had a lovely time.  Perhaps this will become a new tradition for us.....

Finally we were ready for tea!  What a great treat it was lots of attention to detail, I think everyone felt special, even the dolls.

We also took a quick tour of the Lego store, always a fun time!

After a bit of a walk and a stop at The Disney Store we were at the place I could not wait to see.  Eataly!  What an amazing place, food, wine, restaurants, people, and an energy/personality that was tangible.  I so wished I had my big camera and no packages to carry.  I can't wait to go back and take it all in and snap away.  We did a quick tour and I was able to capture a little of what Eataly is about.

Then it was time to head back home for the night.  We ordered pizza and relaxed after a long, fun day.  Many thanks to my Mom and my Aunt for making it such a special day for us girls.
