The Three Sisters Hit the Town

My sister, Adela, and I try to get together a few times a year to eat out and window shop without any of our 9 children in tow. Our wonderful, loving, sister-in-law, Jennifer, who lives in West Virginia got wind of Adela's visit and wanted to be in on the fun. Not wanting to leave her out, we decided to go ahead and invite her to come along! We haven't seen her in awhile, so we greeted her when she arrived with many kisses. She was very tired from traveling, but ready to hit the town with us.



We hopped in the van and headed off for Ruby Tuesday for a yummy lunch. The A/C in Adela's van wasn't working too well. Jen felt a little warm.


Due to all Adela's suitcases, the only spot available to sit was in the car seat. I don't think she was very happy being squished in there.


Adela had water with lemon. Jen had never tried that before, so they shared the drink. Jen found it a little sour.


I shared my artichoke and spinach dip with Jen. The artichoke gave her gas.


We left the tip on the table and headed out to window shop. In our hurry, we left Jen behind! I had to go find her.


At the store we tried on hats...


...and shoes...


...and Jen tried on this beautiful wedding dress just for fun. Poor Jen couldn't get the dress zipped up in the back!


We headed over to Home Goods next, where we promptly lost Jen. Couldn't find her anywhere. Adela paged her. We were worried!


She must have been very tired because we found her sleeping on this comfy bed.


Within 10 minutes, we lost her again! We were pretty frantic this time!


After looking everywhere, we found her cornered by this cute little old man. He was fairly smitten with her.


We had a great time and are looking forward to our next sister's afternoon on the town!

You have a great sense of humor. I would have loved to have seen you guys snickering through the stores. It all sounds like a blast.
By the way, I did not use a filter on my camera. It was steamed up and I grabbed the moment. I wish Lydia's clothes had matched but she had changed her outfit for the third time from playing in the mud and I allowed her to be mismatched. I am interested in getting a filter. I will have to ask you about those details at some time.

Thanks for the good laugh! Makes me want to go on a shopping trip with my sister! :-)

Wonder what the fellow shoppers were thinking?? LOL

Kara Plank said...

This is funny! Maybe this is an alternative to taking my husband shopping! BTW, James, Jon and Andy (my husband) are all brothers. Their mom (Rachel) and Sam DeWolfe's mom are sisters. Andy and I get together with Joe DeWolfe and his wife more often than any of the rest...
