A visit to the big city

Since Daddy is gone to help Bachan and Jichan pack and move...I figured we'd take advantage and head to "Phoenix" for the weekend to visit Grandma and Papa...and of course we missed the Galakatos' more than ever so we snuck in a quick trip to Oregano's today before heading home.
Friday night my Mom was painting her project she was teaching Saturday and Sakura was right in there with her helping....but she was using paper instead of wood :)

Sakura and Grandma painting

Sakura's first painting - she chose raspberry paint all on her own :) That's my girl!

Deep concentration

Snuggling with Papa on the couch Saturday morning....Sakura wasn't real sure about it, but she did manage to sit there for quite awhile. She is definitely a Mommy's girl when she wakes up!

Snuggle time with Wrigley this morning....Papa was fast asleep still!

Ready to go to lunch and see Amy and Sinclair!

But first I must crumple up my painting!
We met up with Amy and Sinclair at Oregano's - YUMMY!!! The girls were fast friends, Sakura really enjoyed watching Sinclair who is quite entertaining! She will make you laugh and laugh, I don't know how Cory and Amy manage to keep a straight face with her!
She is adorable, funny, not to mention incredibly smart!
We are so blessed to know the Galakatos'!

Sakura and Sinclair enjoying their dough balls....(yes they tasted them). We enjoyed our pizza then we even got dessert today, which is my favorite but we rarely order - the pizza cookie!
I could eat the whole thing myself, so it's always nice to go with others and have to share!

Doesn't it look delicious? Nice warm chocolate chip cookie, crunchy on the outside but doughy on the inside topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate chips....to DIE for let me just tell you!

Sinclair eating her dessert...nice and neatly I might add.

Then we have Sakura...not so nice and neatly I might add!
Hopefully next year when she is Sinclair's age, she will be a nice neat eater :)


The sweet girls holding hands....melt my heart - but it only gets better!

SWEET hugs! Awwwwwwww!

AND a kiss too! Double Awwwwwww!

Then posing for a picture...or

Two...or

Three....

Wow! Awesome job painting Sakura! Very impressive ...and she didn't even get any paint on her white shirt either! :)

Enjoyed all the adorable pics of the girls too... so sweet! Looks like a fun day!

These pictures are precious!! They look like two peas in a pod. So cute! Of course, Auntie Eryn has to commend Sakura on her lovely painting skills too! :-)
