New Man in My Life!

There's a new man in my life and I ran away and spent a few days with him last week. Little charmer isn't he?

Little J's regular babysitter took a few days off to be with her new grandbaby last week so Grammie came and spent some time with little J while his mommy and daddy worked. Grampa D was able to work out of the St. Louis office so he came along too.

We had a good time playing, reading, eating and sometimes sleeping. We even did some shopping! One day we went to the grocery store, the next to the mall and then Thursday we ventured to Helen's Hen House. Bad photo, but at least it's proof of little J's first trip to the quilt shop with Grammie. I think he really did enjoy it more than it appears.

And of course I couldn't leave empty handed. I love black and yellow together and had to have some of these by Camelot Cottons. A good addition to the "stash"!

After meeting his Grampa and Daddy for lunch in the pretty little area of shops in St. Charles, we walked down the street and looked in the open doors on this beautiful afternoon. Since it was just little J in the big stroller and me, we weren't able to go inside since many of the stores had lots of steps or narrow entries.

I think Ms Red Geranium had some photos of this same tree in one of her posts this week!

I thought he would take a nap as we strolled around but I think the rough brick streets and sidewalks kept him awake. But isn't this quite the way to spend a sunny spring afternoon!

Your 'new man' is a charmer! So cute, and I don't think he looked 'crabby', as his shirt proclaimed!

Glad you had a wonderful time! Thanks for sharing.

Great pics! I look forward to seeing them all and ordering some. Love the crabby shirt with the hate. OH....

How sweet he is. I'm enjoying all the photos. It's been so long since I was in St. Charles but I remember it being a charming place to visit.

Hey that's MY purple tree. lolol
I love that Cardinals baseball hat. We just missed each other didnt we? Hopefully next time you come I'll be there and can come meet up with you.
