Sisters Day Out

My sister and her husband, Wendy and Randy, arrived from Winnipeg yesterday to spend a week with us here in Arizona.  Lloyd's brother's widow, Catherine, is down here as well visiting friends.  Today we sisters went out for lunch and shopping while the men golfed.  I'm sure we had more fun that the golfers!  It's not very often that I get a chance to hang out with these sisters of mine so it was a real treat.

 After picking Cath up in Sun City, we headed, in a very roundabout way, to Paradise Cafe for a delicious lunch.  The soups, salads and sandwiches there are delicious, and a great way to start our day together.

Not being the shy type, I got Cath to ask a lady sitting at a nearby table to take our picture.  People are usually so good about humoring strangers that way, and she was no different, although she almost lost her table while taking our picture. 

From Paradise, we went to the mall and did some serious shopping.  We made the mistake of trying to go to Sees Candy shop on the day before Valentine's.  The line was out the door and down the hall.  We decided we didn't need chocolate after all and will go back after the 14th when they won't be so busy.

So we wouldn't feel too bad about not getting chocolates, Catherine treated us to mini blizzards at the Dairy Queen in the food court...flavor of the month...cherry-choco-love...delicious.

After a stop at JoAnnes for fabric and scrapbook supplies, we finally got home just after five, promising to do it again soon.

It's so nice to be able to spend time out with the sisters.  Really makes me appreciate family ties.

Have a nice Valentine's Day.

Oh I'm jealous!
Seriously, have a wonderful time doing all the wonderful things that you do in Surprise!
You're looking very trim BTW!


What charming photos of the three of you and your day together. Looks like you sisters painted the town. That cafe is delightful. Bet the food was yummy. Sorry you couldn't get into Sees. My brother sends me a box of chocolates from there for Christmas. Probably after Valentine's Day it'll be less crowded. Happy HEART Day. ENJOY!

It does sound like a wonderful day spent together. Tomorrow will be a great day to tuck in and work on scrap booking with a nice pot of soup for dinner. Maybe we'll actually get some rain.

It is a real pain to try to celebrate Valentine's with my spouse. A day with sisters would be fantastic while the guys golf. Love it!

It looks like you all had a wonderful day out. By the smiles on all your faces, I can tell you all really enjoyed being together. I got to visit with my sisters yesterday and it's true that family ties are a blessing. Happy Valentines Day!
