Sarah's Turn

Just because it was Katie's 9th birthday that didn't mean the whole day was going to be devoted to her. The morning had belonged to Katie but the afternoon belonged to Sarah.

After lunch we made our way to our next destination. Of course, we had to take photos on the way. It looks like she is still loving Sam.

These Victoria Secret Wings were all over the city. I'm not sure what it was all about but people, including us, were having fun standing in front of the wings and having our photos taken. Even Sam got in on the fun.

I couldn't convince Sarah to pose with the wings. Where is her sense of adventure?

This was our destination for the afternoon.

We were at Macys to look at wedding dresses. This was Sarah's second visit to a bridal salon to look and try on dresses. They didn't allow pictures so I don't have any of the actual event but I can show you how Katie amused herself for the couple of hours we spent there.

I can tell you that she ended up liking a dress that was very much like the one she had liked in Pittsburgh. Go figure.

On our way to dinner we enjoyed a little street music. Street music is the best.

It was quite a day of contrasts for my not that much younger sister and I. We took one daughter to pick out her first American Girl doll and we took one daughter to pick out a wedding dress. Life is funny like that.
