My husband had business to attend to in K.C. and was sweet enough to invite his girls to tag along.
He headed to work and we headed to Zona Rosa- a fabulous outdoor mall with oodles of shopping and restaurants!
The perfect photo op! The only thing missing was One Direction.;)
We were greeted by the sweetest dog in this shop!
He headed straight for Mandy and kept her company while Katie and I looked around.
I thought this gray dress was striking with the red necklace.
We ate lunch at Bravo!
The weather was absolutely perfect.
Around 80 with a soft breeze.
The little girls giggling in the water (center, below) set the scene.:)
(We dined outside underneath the far left umbrella.)
Here we are!
Later the girls went swimming and I read.
The next day we went to the American Girl store in Oak Park Mall...
then had lunch at Nordstrom where Katie created a notebook with colorful washi tape.
Fun! (We found this washi tape set later at Target!)
After lunch we were off to the races!
Again, the weather was perfect.
80's in August?? It just doesn't happen- unless you're really lucky.;)
I love how you can see the blue sky and clouds mirrored on this Lamborghini.
Mandy posed inside the Mazda car.:) Later, it won the race!
The girls posing in the pit. (Those are all computer screens where they keep track of everything you could imagine- and more. Fascinating. I had no idea there was so much going on behind the scenes.)
The girls posing with one of the drivers- Tristan Nunez. He's just 17 and so friendly and charming! That's his car in the back- the one Mandy posed in earlier. (There are actually 2 drivers as each car must have two.)
I got in on the action, too. As little as possible, thank you!
There were fireworks after the race- and champagne sprayed on the winners!
The weekend was wonderful.
Now it's time for me to get back to work planning for school.
Next Monday is our kick-off!
