Day 206 - Westview Shopping Center

(Click any photo to enlarge.)

Grandmother duties had to take top priority today.  My 22 month old granddaughter, Carly, had a fever yesterday and was sent home from daycare, so I was tapped for keeping her at home today.  I am happy to report that she is feeling better and eating and drinking well, so I think she will be able to return tomorrow.  However, by default, she became my walking partner.

The first problem was that I did not have a stroller.  It was in her mother's car, and I forgot to ask for it early this morning.  So we drove to the Westview Shopping Center where my daughter is the director of a physical therapy clinic, and got the stroller.  The wind was picking up, and the temperature was about 45, so I bundled Carly in her polkadot jacket and put up the hood.

We made the entire circuit of the shopping center, with the goal of finding Easter/Spring related things.  We were on the hunt for bunnies, eggs, and flowers.  Unfortunately, we did not find much, at least not in the windows of the businesses we passed.

We ended our walk 30 minutes later at Tutti Frutti, sampling their different flavors of yogurt.  My favorite picture from today is the cool lighting pendants they have in the store.

Carly is napping now, giving me some time to get this done.  I enjoyed the day with Carly, but I promise a better walk and better photos tomorrow.
