"Girls Day Out" in the city

Hey sister's daughter, Penny, is here for a quick summer visit from out west to help us celebrate my Mom's 87th birthday on Friday.  Us girls took a quick trip to the city to pick up some supplies.  Here are some pics....

My niece, Tonya had a fabulous dinner prepared when we arrived on Sunday evening...complete with appetizers and dessert... 

Here's Tonya, making sure everyone had lots of wine with their dinner...

On Monday, we started out with a fabulous brunch at Bagel Cafe in downtown St. John's

From left to right---Tonya (Niece), Rana (Daughter), Penny (Niece visiting from Alberta), and Sister Brenda
 After our bellies were full from brunch, we set out on a leisurely stroll around downtown.....We grabbed dessert after brunch at the Newfoundland Chocolate Company.....YUMMY!!!!!!!!

All that walking made us thirsty, so we popped into Bivver for a cold beverage......

We walked some more and worked up an appetite for a little treat from the Ziggy Peelgood truck on Water Street.  We had fries with loads of malt vinegar....can't you just smell them!!??!

After a great day with these beautiful daughter, sister and nieces, we were all happy to go back to Rana & Mark's house and relax.  Mark barbecued some great chicken and we finished our day together with a light supper of chicken and salads.  I am sooo lucky!!
