A Daycation

Today Martha and I spent a day together, out and about. Priscilla was supposed to come too, but is too overwhelmed with school stuff right now, so she opted out. Martha and I spent the day touring antique shops and eating out.
The fall colors were beautiful! This picture was taken near where we stopped for lunch...the first time.Whoa!
We took a scenic walk through Grimes Point (was that what it was called, Martha? It doesn't sound right.) This little bridge we had to cross over was a little broken down, so....
Martha jumped on it to see if she could break it. Not really, she was just showing me that it wasn't all that flimsy.
I thought this old tricycle in one of the antique shops was neat.
At the end of our day together, we stopped at Gudl's restaurant for some authentic German cuisine. Not only did I get to meet 2 computer friends (Gudl and Melissa) in person, but I got to enjoy a delicious meal too!! Unfortunately we were much too full for the yummy looking desserts.

It was a very fun, much needed day out together for some sister time! Hopefully the next time Priscilla can come too.

Ooo! That bottom picture is scary!

It was a nice day, Rachel, and it was Grimes Glen. Good place for a hike.

I like the tricycle.

Rachel said...

That picture doesn't look the least bit scary to me...do you want me to remove it?

Martha said...

No, I don't. Pictures of me usually look scary. I'm a scary woman, you know.

No removing it. You both look so happy! Glad you all had a good time.

Bethany said...

Yeah, good picture of Mom! Ha, ha!! Glad you both had fun. I saw Mom's post and then had to come get your side of the story. :)

Hi Rachel,thank you so much for coming to the Rheinblick tonight! I am glad you liked it and it was a pleasure to meeting you ... now I know all the sisters!! Too bad that Priscilla couldn't come along.
It looks like you had a great day. Sorry, that I didn't say bye to you, I must have been in the kitchen. When I came back you were gone and I was sorry!!

Rachel said...

Gudl- It was great to meet you too tonight! We knew that you were busy, you don't need to apologize. My only regret was that I was much too full for one of those yummy looking deserts. I'll have to try and save some room next time.

You guys are so blessed to have such a wonderful relationship. I so wish I had that with my only sis.

That's so nice you two got to do that. I'm planning something with my mom and sister in the spring. We're thinking of going to NYC together for a couple of days, seeing a show, seeing sights. I look forward to that time with them.
