Christmas Part Dos: my three daughters (could be a TV sitcom) came to visit. The time always goes too quickly, but we pack in a lot of stuff! We started off with our "Christmas" gift exchange. Always a fun time! For dinner, we headed over to the Queenshead for fish and chips. Voted the best in St. Pete!
The next day we took a walk along the Bay to downtown. We stopped in the Vinoy for our annual Christmas Tree photo shoot. Then we headed over to Meze for some shawarma after a couple appetizers. About halfway on our walk home, it started raining. We walked fast, then ran to make it before getting too soaked. We had a few (?) moments of drama, but all ended well. Hot cocoa with peppermint marshmallows and corn flake wreath for night time snacks.
We took a walk to the Saturday Morning Market. It seemed like half the vendors were missing. Was definitely a scaled back version between the holidays. We then walked over to Three Birds Tavern on 4th Street North for mid afternoon lunch and ate out on the porch.
It was a warm day and no rain! Seems like all we do is eat, doesn't it? I enjoy when the girls come to visit and we get to stretch Christmas out a bit more!
I had to include a picture of my niece's twins. We refer to them as the "Twinkies"! Gabriella and Lucas. Gabby looks just like her mom, and Lucas looks like his dad!
