Emersyn is a big fan of girl time, what girl isn't? When Everett is napping and Emersyn is awake, I try to make the most of our time together but sometimes life gets in the way of quality time moments. So I decided that Ems and I needed a girls date away from the house while Everett was at Nana and Papa's. I put this date on the calendar and reserved a pass to the Children's Museum from the library (FREE versus $18 for the two of us). Ems has been talking about it for weeks and I was just as excited!
We both straightened our hair for girls day. :)
I told Emersyn that I thank God every day that He gave me a little girl. Ems has been talking about growing up a lot and she always says "Mom....I HAVE to get big....but we can STILL be best friends." I make her promise that she'll honor this promise even as a teenager and she assures me that she will. :)
The grocery store is Emersyn's favorite part. It would have been my favorite part too as a little girl.
We played with clay!
We enjoyed the outdoor maze and the Oregon sunshine!
After the children's museum I needed to do some shopping so I decided to extend our girls date. I am going to a lingerie shower tomorrow night so we went shopping for that first to get it out of the way. Ems was puzzled by the lingerie and concluded, "that's just for mommy's to wear". ;)
Then we headed to Gymboree where Ems tried on clearance shoes while I spent a reward certificate and got Auntie Lou's baby a cute onsie ($2...score), Everett a sweater vest for next Spring, and a few other things. I got Ems some yoga pants. I asked her if she wanted some yoga pants and she said, "no....but I'd like some frozen yogurt pants". I decided she needed the best of both worlds so she got the yoga pants and frozen yogurt.
Then we had a tea party at her favorite store in the mall, Pottery Barn Kids.
On our way out we decided to do one last girly thing.....get some make up done. We went to our favorite make up counter and told them that we were on a fun girls date and Emersyn needed to get fancied up.
Before. Totally beautiful to begin with but make up is just too fun. :)
The initial consultation.
The final look, gorgeous!!! :)
We had such a fun day. I am so thankful for a special boy and a special girl in my life. My heart could just burst when I think about how blessed I am to be Emersyn and Everett's mama. I'm excited to take my little boy out too someday.
Happy weekend everyone!!
