Shoppin with Gramma

We have so many birthdays in February we try to do something special for each one!
For our granddaughter Corals' 5th birthday we planned a shopping spree and lunch day with Gramma and Pa.
Plans changed as Pas' mom was in the hospital so it was just Coral and I.
I told her I'd take her anywhere she wanted to go
She decided she wanted to go to Toys R Us
{its a huge toy store for those of you who don't know Toys r us}
since she had never been there!
They crowned her the birthday girl, gave her a balloon and announced her birthday on the loud speaker.
I told her she could buy anything she wanted in the whole store!.
We shopped and shopped.... every single isle of toys!
Looked at every toy and read every box!
After hours of looking she finally decided!
Then we went to Michaels for some crafting supplies and to Target for Valentines day presents!
Pa met us for dinner and told everyone in the restaurant is was Corals' birthday.....
She told me that "Pa embarrassed her".
I asked why and she said because he told people she doesn't even know that today was her birthday and she was soooo embarrassed!
We laughed.
I swear spending the day with Coral shopping and the conversations we had, was like spending the day with a 15 year old!
I had to keep reminding myself she was only 5 years old!
It was such a fun day and a day I hope she will remember!
Happy Birthday Princess!
Gramma and Pa love you very much!

Until next time,
Hugz and Blessings,
{my birthday is the 27th... Do you think I will be sick of cake by then}

This was such a cute story!! You Pa & Coral all reaped the benefits...

By the way, don't we all get embarrased in restaurants when the birthday girl/guy is fussed over in front of strangers, I do. Well, a little.

You are a wonderful Grandmother!!

What a wonderful memory you created for your granddaughter. She'll always remember that, I'm sure!

And. . . happy early Birthday to you too Dolly! Yeah, I think you'll be pretty sick of cake by then.

Happy Birthday Dolly,

I hope you had the best day ever. Love the Cherry Key holder! What a precious present.

I still stare at my cherry heart box sitting on my kitchen counter ~ every day! I just love it.
