Daily Tidbits

Today, we were in Reading, PA all day (about 1 1/2 hours away) looking at vanities, colors, styles, granite, etc... I brought Stella with us and by the time we got home, she needed a nice break from being in the car a good part of the day. (Mostly driving with us.) So we took her to a beautiful dog park in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia.

All the dogs got along so nicely, and there were a lot of dogs. It turned out to be a beautiful day.

My son came with us to the park after he was done working, and stepped in a nice fresh, warm, pile of dog crap. So he rinsed his shoe with a stick in the pond.

Here we are under the beautiful trees.

Then we decided to grab a bite to eat at the Chestnut Hill Grill, although it is still a hotel. They have great food, and you can sit outside with your furry friends. I had awesome pot stickers, a grilled chicken sandwich, with spinach, roasted red peppers, and sharp provolone. We also split a Caesar salad, and some great hot wings with blue cheese.

It is a great old town, where you can walk up and down both sides of the street, and shop in the best stores. Bakeries, cheese shops, doggie specialties shops, cafes, record shops, clothing shops, stationary shops, map stores, book stores, etc...You get the picture. That is my son with Stella in front of where we ate.

My hubby being silly, while waiting for the bill.


  1. What a long but fun day, and Stella got to go too! There is nothing worse than stepping into a pile of poo! The dog owners can be so inconsiderate to leave their dog's poop out for someone to step in!!!

    Thanks for sharing! The dinner sounded divine, eating outside, and Stella included!! Like your XOXOs at the end of your post. PS you look GREAT!!! xoxo

  2. I hope you found all your fun things for the bathroom. It also looked like a beautiful day. Ronda I still owe you a recipe. I don't actually have a recipe for the scones because I grab a little of this and that etc. so bare with me I'll get it to you... xoxo

  3. what a fun day! with all the blossoms and the boys....great pic of you, you are so pretty and petite! thanks for sharing...

  4. Great day and pics! I think it's neat that you were able to take the day with your husband mid-week and get something done. Lunch too!

  5. What a fun little trip! That dog park is really beautiful...it puts some of the ones we have around here to shame! :P

    p.s. your family is so cute! & that's so funny about your poor son! At least there was a pond nearby! haha!

  6. I used to live in PA, and have not been to Chestnut Hill in 20 years or so - thanks for the trip down memory lane. It's a great town!
