A Fabulous Friday

I had the day off today and I drove in to Erie (Pennsylvania) and spent some time with my daughter.
I just love the architecture of some of those old buildings.

Amanda forced me to go to Hobby Lobby.  She even encouraged my addiction when we were in the scrapbook paper section by pointing out an all season paper pack and the 50% off sign.  Would that be considered a form of elder abuse?


Like any good mother, I made sure my daughter had a good meal before taking her back home.

While we were waiting to place our order I was looking around for the restroom. Amanda pointed and said they're over there. She sent me to the kitchen. I think she was trying to pay me back for pulling out my camera in the restaurant. Again with the elder abuse. I think next time we go to lunch I'm going to insist on taking her picture with our waitress.

What a big strong building with such delicate looking designs.
Love the elder abuse. lol!
I'm very happy when someone sends me to a sundae bar, yummy!
I would definitely take the pic of your daughter and the waitress. Payback for all the elder abuse! :)
Sounds like you had a fun Friday!

We don't have buildings like that here in GA. Every old building was burnt down.

I have been to Max and Erma's in Ohio - and I didn't see that Sundae Bar!

Glad you had a good time with your daughter and fed her a meal before you dropped her off home!

Love,
sandie

Glad you had a good day out with Amanda! It does appear she's bordering on elder abuse by making you go to Hobby Lobby! How awful is that? LOL Is she living in PA again or visiting from CO?

I'm a new follower and new to blogging. I am a scrapbooker too. I have not had time for it though, since I went on this tangent of blogging!

Marg said...

That really is elder abuse. You need to teach that daughter a lesson. LOL. Too funny. Who has the upper hand .Take care and have a super week end.

Sher said...

I love all those old buildings too. And I also embarrass my kids with my camera as well. Hey, that's what we do best!

At least you got her a nutritional meal like lunch at a sundae bar!

And I'm trying to get the image out of my head of you kicking and screaming while she is physically dragging you into the craft store.

The things we do for our kids!

Oh, that certainly looks and sounds like fun! Hobby Lobby is addicting, isn't it? Do you have any money left after going there??? I never do.

Catherine said...

A day off from work with your daughter in a craft store??? I would suggest the start of a weekend doesn't get any better than that!

Have a good one Ann!

Looks to be like y'all had a great Friday. Lovin' the Sundae Bar!

Ginny said...

I love that big clock! I have never been in a Hobby Lobby, we don't have any around here. We have Michael's.

Jen said...

Elder abuse in Hobby Lobby? Ha. Sounds more like aiding and abetting to me :oD

Grampy said...

Crafts and a Sundae bar. Doesn't get much better than that. I am glad you got to spend some quality time with Amanda. Hope you get to see her more often. Have a good weekend.

I always enjoy architecture, in every of my trips. And good meals, and some buying, and a nice company... You had the perfect plan!

Antonella said...

Sounds like you had a great day... what a terrible thing to "force" you to face your addiction at hobby lobby - lol! You'd think by now she would be immune to the "my parents embarrass me" dilemma - just goes to show, they still have a lot to learn :-o

Hugs, antonella :-)

Ann said...

Ha! Glad you had such a nice time with your daughter. I love the way just a day trip can feel like a vacation.

I wonder if that bathtub was used to produce gin way back when?

Sandra said...

i love that old tub, what a creative way to have a sundae bar, the clock tower is beautiful, but my favorite is the chair at the table, my kind of shot, I LOVE IT! glad you got to visit your daughter in the big city. I love all the things you sent Ginny, so cute.

Molly Smith said...

Oh how fun! The photos are fabulous as always, Ann! I am actually laughing out loud at the elder abuse statements :) Love the building. I want that clock!!!

Have a wonderful weekend!

You had fun! Those 1030s designs were just classic! I have a Hobby Lobby gift certificate, and I can't get myself there to spend it.

Helen said...

I'm glad Hobby Lobby is not near where I live other wise I'll be there already abusing my wallet. :)

Snappy Di said...

I want a Hobby Lobby in my town too! :-((

Country Mouse Studio said...

Sounds like a wonderful day, that building is incredible. We sure don't make them that complicated anymore
