At the first of October (while it was still 80 degrees outside) I got a babysitter for the baby and me and my oldest daughter went on a date to Gardner Village.
This is the first year I thought she would appreciate all the fun decorating and stuff that they do for Halloween.
We went into a bunch of the stores and had lunch at the little cafe/bakery there.
She posed with a bunch of the witches but particularly loved the one that was lifting up her skirt to show cats running around under there!
Gardner Village is a historic flour mill dating to the mid 1800's and the Mill that is still there running was putt in around 1870's. There are many buildings with shops on the property, a reception/gathering hall, restaurant, area for animals, a stream running through the middle. The types of shops that you can find here are quilt shop, fabric shop, doll shop, day spa, candy shop, kids boutique, furniture store, and in general everything a woman enjoys can be found here! Perfect for GNO or lunch dates with your friends.
