Before Avery started school I told her we'd have a girls day. Avery started school on a Friday but Ellie started her Children's Day Out on a Thursday so it was just Avery and I for most of the day.
We decided we would go to the movies, get our nails & toes done, and do a little shopping.
When we got to the mall for the movie, it was a little too early to get tickets so I got a little breakfast and we just hung out. Avery told me she didn't want anything and then ended up eating half my breakfast. Typical.
Avery decided she wanted to see Despicable Me 2. I didn't realize it was 3D until we got to the theater. Confession: I've always thought the idea of 3D was dumb. Who wants to wear glasses during a movie?! Especially my 5 year old! But I have to say that my view is not forever changed. It was actually really fun and on several occasions Avery stuck her hands out to try to feel stuff that was coming for us. It was pretty cute. And the movie was adorable.
After the movies we went and got our nails done. Always a favorite event with us!
After we got our nails done we did a little shopping. Avery picked out a special outfit for the first day of school. Even accessorized with jewelry.
It was a great day for us. Just what the two of us needed. But the day was a little sad for me knowing that was something my mom would have definitely been a part of. She never missed a good girls day!
I love making these memories with my girls. I hope they will cherish them always!
