Day Out

M had two doctor appointments yesterday, in St. Paul — one in the morning and one in the afternoon. So we headed over to Grand Avenue in between and did some eating and shopping. As M said, “We’re having a fun day!” She loves going on outings, especially when it’s just the two of us (F stayed at home with my mom).

We had a delicious lunch at Cafe Latté. I almost walked back out after we got there, because I was sure I wouldn’t be able to find something for M, but I reeeally wanted to try their vegetarian salads. And M was able to get a peanut butter sandwich, which is a recent favorite of hers (I never think to make them at home), so we were both happy. We went to a handful of shops in the area, and I think Red Balloon was the favorite for both of us. I’d never been before, but kids’ books are definitely a weakness of mine!

Can you see the back of M’s shirt in the photo above? The front says “Future President” — we got lots of comments on it! M doesn’t actually know what a president does yet, but that hasn’t been proven to be a barrier to entry…

  1. Love Grand Avenue and Cafe Latte! Now I’m nostalgic for home… there’s nothing that compares here in metro Detroit.
