Cupcakes & Carousel Rides

This Fall has been full of lots of activities!

One afternoon, Little A & I discovered a new cupcake bakery in our trendy river district. Is it just me or are these cupcake stores popping up in droves everywhere?

Little A was delighted to find a case full of cupcakes, teeming with icing and several with animal faces. She chose a kitty cat themed sugary delight.

And after several attempts, couldn't do much more damage than this.

Just outside the cupcake store is a very popular park in the area. It has a fabulous indoor carousel, complete with many handcarved animals that are amazing to witness. I try to take the girls here a few times a year to recapture my youth let them have a couple of rides.

Little A was VERY excited about riding the fish.

Big A was thrilled to not miss out on this outing! Little A & I often do things while Big A is at school.

One of these days, I'll have to let them girls try to capture a picture of me on one of these carousel animals, because it's quite a sight!

Yes, the cupcake shops are popping up everywhere! They're cool now.... As are the carousel animals there. That is truly a great set to ride on. I love them.

I'm also trying not to pine over the As' hair, but not succeeding. *sigh*

So cute! Looks like a fabulous fall day well spent! I have never been to Coolidge. It was built after I left but it looks so cool!
