Day 118 – Happy Birthday Grandma T

Day 118

This morning saw the departure of Nana K back to St. Louis. We were able to visit Chick-fil-A twice while she was here, consume lots of cookies, visit the beach, play at the pool, and even enjoy a Welcome to the Family gift – a St. Louis Cardinals jumper and T-shirt.

I can’t tell if Asher likes it or not:

I have no such allegiance for the Cardinals. Mama has had him in a Yankees onesie. But I’m a White Sox fan. So, you can see how confused this poor child will be.)

Asher’s been on Grandma overload, which is, no doubt, a good thing. Both grandmas were able to get together yesterday over chips and salsa, since Chick-fil-A wasn’t open for us:

With a heavy stomach, I decided to try something I’ve never tried alone before – a Chick-fil-A multigrain bagel. That’s it.  Just a bagel.  And here’s what she looks like:

Let me just tell you something – this was spectacular! (Thank you Sesame Street for the word of the day I’ve seen now the last two weeks in a row since you discontinued the Squirmadega episode.)  No cheese cream, no toppings, just a bagel lightly brushed with butter then grilled to perfection. I can’t wait to have my next one!

Thank you to Phyllis, working the drive thru (and my other gal whose name slips me at the moment – I am so sorry!, as well as one of the morning managers who I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting yet):

So we headed out there this evening, and Asher had a great time with Grandma. He behaved excellently. (Nevermind this incriminating photo of him with his rear on the table):

All in all, it was a great day, and I’m already thinking about my Chick-fil-A bagel again tomorrow. 🙂
