On Sunday my sweet young lady, Elise, turned 14
A lot of people think she is older than her 16 year old sister. I've always said she's an old soul ... wise beyond her years ... usually. After all, she is still a teenager.
I know she would have preferred to spend the day with her friends but it didn't work out that way. Instead she spent the day with her Mom : ) The weather was just perfect with temps in the upper 70's and we decided to go to Newburyport, MA to walk around for a bit. For some reason I'd never taken her there before and I knew she'd love it because of it's similarity to Portsmouth, NH. We arrived in town right around lunch time so we decided to give The Purple Onion a try. I'm so glad we did! The food was very good!
Elise had the Chicken, Roast Tomato & Basil Panini, while I ordered the Smoked Turkey and Swiss Panini. That's my sandwich in the photo above. Elise kept joking about the holes in my cheese. For some reason it seemed very funny to her. lol!
No, the ceiling isn't dirty. I just felt like adding textures to all the photos
What a great day we had! Even though I don't think it's how my daughter had planned to spend her Birthday, she still seemed to have a good time. Later on, instead of celebrating with cake, our family went out for ice cream.
For gifts Elise is getting a bedroom makeover, something she's wanted for a long time now. If only I could actually get to the walls to paint them! My word that girl has a lot of 'stuff'! In all fairness her bedroom is very small too ... so maybe it just seems like she has a lot of stuff. We're talking about moving one of the girls into the guest room so I could move Elise into a larger bedroom. My husband and I still have to talk about it a little more before we make the decision.
In my next post I'll show you a few more photos from our trip to Newburyport. There's a special couple I really want you to meet.
