Later in the afternoon, when we were wearing down and readying for a chair and a hot chocolate/caffeine somewhere, we found ourselves heading to a dressing room with armloads of dresses and clothes for Kirstin to try on.
Hallelujah: A dressing room with a view, and a cool marble ledge to rest our weary bodies. I myself was dressed for the outdoors, and overheating, with silk long johns, heavy coat, scarf, and gloves. I peeled outerwear and, having the dressing room to ourselves, spread out on the marble to cool off. Sssssssssssizzzle!
While Kirsty got about trying on dresses, we had ourselves a little photo shoot:
Me & Sue:
And our baby Kirsty, after we'd chosen THE dress, which I will not show you here, cuz it's a s'prise!
We had a howling good time in "our" dressing room, walking along the ledge and messing around, laughing and screaming like we owned the place. Oddly enough, no one joined us in that room while we were there, can you imagine?!
Tired when we entered, it was comic relief that cooled us off and energized our spirit; we left giggling and on our way, finally, to:
Hot chocolates, lattes, and a brownie sundae with 4 spoons was enough to move us to the next leg of our trip.
