A short ten minute drive from our house is a beautiful outdoor mall, Stony Point Fashion Park. It has incredible stores, most of which I have never visited because they are well out of our budget:
But a girl can still dream, right? (Especially dreaming of that Tiffany & Co blue box coming my way Mother’s Day, birthday, Christmas morning…)
The mall also allows (even encourages) people to bring their dogs by putting water bowls throughout and “dog friendly” signs on the fronts of stores where the four-legged friends are permitted (i.e. not Tiffany and Saks 5th Avenue).
But the best part of this mall is the outdoor fountains.
Now that the weather is turning warmer, the fountains are a great place for Frances and George to cool off and to run off some excess energy. Frances loves the fountains. The jury is still out for George, but he’s getting braver by the day.
The fountains sit right next to Sur La Table, one of my favorite window-shopping stores (and it’s a good thing because I rarely can ever get inside the store to do much more than window shop).
As you can see by these pictures, George spends the majority of his time watching (and chasing) his big sister. Frances doesn't seem to mind the attention at all. How strange.
