martha and i recently participated in our very first dine and dash experience. why would two honest girls do such a thing? well, when your brain is fried after mothering young children and you are sipping coffee and eating the most delish desserts on earth, your mind is not on the bill! last week martha and henry came for a visit and amongst other things, we had a late afternoon snack at the most scrumptious bellingham eatery, the mount bakery. the children's cries indicated an abrupt end to our little rest and in a scramble to pick up everything off the floor that riley could think of to put on the floor, we hurried out the door and made our way home. it dawned on me about a block from home that we completely forgot to pay the bill! i stopped by the next day, a tad embarrassed...but they didn't even realize we forgot to pay! i guess that's how it works in small town bellingham.
anyway, we had a great visit with martha and henry, even though bellinghams rainy day options are few and far between. oh, how we miss the big city on days like those! we stopped by the children's museum for a brief visit, did a little window shopping then on to the mount bakery. come back soon!
and yes, that is chocolate all over riley's face. a mother will do anything to keep her very busy toddler happy and entertained in order to have a few moments of chit chat with her sister!
